You may have noticed that many of your favorite websites/blogs are “blacked out” today in protest of SOPA, but have you taken a moment to read about what this protest is about? Censorship threatens to control the Internet we all know and enjoy and if you’re from Canada (like me) or another country outside of the U.S. you might think this is an American issue and it doesn’t affect us but you’re wrong!!
To show my support and do my own part to create awareness, I’ve posted links to some literature and put up a “Stop Censorship” banner on PopMessiah.com until 1/24/2012! If you want to add your name to the petition, please click the banner in the top-right and you will be taken to americancensorship.org!
