It does not matter if you are Anonymous in USA or a Buddhist in China, whether your sexuality is criminalised by “your” government or you speak out against crimes of ‘your” government, if you believe that the state has too much power or demand that it takes responsibility, whether you have been labeled antisemite for criticising Israel and islamophobe for criticising Islam or you are a muslim Jew and are experience hatered in your daily life; We all have something to say and many of us say that on the internet, this vast bastion of free speech and radical expression is now being threatened by the country, which goes around criticising everybody else for not opening up more to their cultural values. USA is trying to pass the bill which will kill the internet by forcing the sites where people communicate to police their users. This time they are not using “protect the children” rhetoric, today the name of the game is “stop the piracy”, but the rules stay the same, and the rules are goal-based, which means do whatever is needed to stop the freedom of speech, because it is so fucking inconvenient.
Please take a moment to sign the petition, but of course do not just sign it and pat yourself on the back as job well done. Petition is action, but not direct action. If we simply ask the government of the US to please stop oppressing the whole world, they just might be polite enough to let this one slide this time. However, if we organise in such a way as to disallow such a form of opression, then the government will have something to contend with, and eventually they will lose, because the government without the people following its orders cannot exist.
So here are some things that you can do personally to explore the world beyond what the state wants you to see:
And please remember that the governments should be scared of their populations!
