Australia: Internet Filter Protest

Please place your foto on Flickr, use tag nocleanfeed so I can find it HERE.

Lots of brouhaha at the moment over the internet filters.

As opposition grows against the Government’s controversial plan to censor the internet, the head of one of Australia’s largest ISPs has labelled the Communications Minister the worst we’ve had in the past 15 years.

Separately, in Senate question time today, Greens senator Scott Ludlam accused the Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, of misleading the public by falsely claiming his mandatory censorship plan was similar to that already in place in Sweden, Britain, Canada and New Zealand.

“They’re not listening to the experts, they’re not listening to the industry, they’re not listening to consumers, so perhaps some hard numbers will actually help,” he said.

“Every time a kid manages to get through this filter, we’ll be publicising it and every time it blocks legitimate content, we’ll be publicising it.” (Malone IINET)

Tonnes more here in SMH (Sydney Morning Herald revels in anything negative – or perceived negative)
Stephen Collins, aka @trib, making a point. Do YOU have a foto like this? Writing on hand, holding up paper, post it note on your smacker? I’m making a video – if I get enough photos – so c’mon and protest on Flickr. (use nocleanfeed for tag please).

Background: old blog post – and http://nocleanfeed.com – might help?
