Please signal boost, guys.
The Philippines need media coverage around the world if they hope to have any chance at repealing this shit.
To put things short, this bill is SOPA and ACTA’s demon spawn.
It was signed in at an inconvenient time, purposely for political reasons. This bill will restrict the voice of anyone who wishes to speak out against their politician, and is so vague and convoluted that 12-year jail time can be smacked on anyone for the most absurd reasons.
[ ooc i know but this is relevant to me
i am a citizen of the philippines and this law threatens my freedom on the internet
if you could spread this around it would be much appreciated thank you ]
A lot of the blogs I and my friend follow are suddenly either down or password protected; they didn’t even allow 2 days for this law to pass, certainly not enough time for the public to react, and began acting on it within half a day (this morning), and already have many people in jail for up to 12 years.
This is the ultimate social justice act; not only is it ACTA/PIPA/SOPA combined, if you reblog, post, follow a blog that posts, +like, or otherwise interact with material that could potentially be offensive to someone, you’re immediately in some form of trouble with the law. I don’t know how severe, specifically, depending on what the ‘crime’ is.
Signal boost this, please.))
These people should be ashamed of themselves. And they should have their careers taken from them. Remember, they have the power they are given. The people have the power to give or to take away. Work as best you can to take this away as soon as possible. We will not accept this fascist garbage.
Fight against this evil whether at home or across the world.
