Greens support ‘The Great Australian Internet Blackout’ against net censorship

Posted by Steve on January 25, 2010

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam is supporting over 500 websites that will mark this Australia Day by fading to black in protest against theFederal Government’s proposed internet filter.

“I am proud to be part of this week-long national action – The Great Australian Internet Blackout,” said Australian Greens spokesperson for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Senator Scott Ludlam.

“The government’s plan will not protect children, will do nothing to crack down on criminal activity online, and sets a dangerous precedent of centralised net censorship,” Senator Ludlam said. “Communications Minister Stephen Conroy should start paying attention to the almost universal condemnation of this scheme and pursue alternatives rather than pushing ahead with the mandatory filter.”
