Join The New Zealand Internet Blackout to protest against the Guilt Upon Accusation law ‘Section 92A’ that calls for Internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny. This is due to come into effect on February 28th unless immediate action is taken by the National Party

Right May be you don’t live in New Zealand, but remember

First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the communists
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Already This evil practise is been allegedly  used by   Starcomms in Nigeria to arbitraryly disconnect the Internet lines of many of their customers for downloading pirated media, without giving the customers a chance to defend themselves.

Well i feel we can do something about it. The Internet is a powerful medium and we can make our displeasure heard by blacking out your avatar you can download a black avatar from here http://creativefreedom.org.nz/blackout.html . This is a subtle way to show that we would not start by or support this kind of action. Remember if its succeeds in getting official sanction in New Zealand, Chances are Governments in other countries my decide to follow the same path. But if we stand by our New Zealand brothers(and sisters) we can all nip this evil act in the bud.
