Thumbs down Online Blackout in CISPA Protest April 22

Quote:
No sooner had the House of Representatives passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), on Thursday, than word began spreading of an online protest. Some are suggesting the protest take the form of a “blackout” – going offline for 24 hours, displaying censorship bars over content or posting statements of opposition to Internet censorship — similar to last year’s opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/technolo...cispa-protest/

Can't we just turn off the politicians instead?

People should have had started protesting after the renewing of the patriot act (by the Democrats and Republicans), it is just the continuity to destruct the Constitution.

Look what they are building at Utah, watch the video too
