Calling All UK Subjects/Citizens

BUT PEOPLE FROM EVERY NATION
NEED TO LEARN ABOUT ACTA TOO
BECAUSE IT WILL BE A GLOBAL LAW




There is a petition you should sign if you disagree with ACTA [legislation they are trying to bring in that is a disgusting attack on personal freedoms] you can learn all about ACTA in brief HERE

This is a British Government petition, meaning that if they get more then ten thousand signatures it will be debated in the House of Commons. So it is a valid and legal petition and I beg all those from the UK to sign it *and* spread this petition through your Facebook/LiveJournal/*Any* other social networking sites you belong to.

We cannot allow them to do this to the internet, it kills the whole point of why it was created. The only unlegislated freedom that we have is about to be strangled away from us. Don't let them do it.


Please sign it and please spread the word.

! SAY NO TO ACTA HERE !






MORE ABOUT THIS AND A POST TO YOUR JOURNAL LINK UNDER THIS CUT )

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

Who's next, I wonder?

Did Sarah Palin really tell the moderator in the VP debate that she wouldn't answer her questions if she didn't want to? DID SHE?! Two words, people: Jeremy Paxman. I'd love to see her try that on Paxo.
