Show your support for the Internet Freedom and Freedom of Speech in the Philippines spread this message that the government will take actions to review the Cybercrime Law ʀᴀ ɴᴏ. 10175. I also got this information on Facebook and Twitter and I’m just sharing it here on my blog. Here is one example of the call to action.
TODAY, 02 October 2012, the Supreme Court sitting en banc is set to hear several petitions for prohibition against the Cybercrime Prevention Law.
If the high court junks these petitions and disapproves the request for a temporary restraining order (TRO), the Cybercrime Prevention Law will take effect the following day, forever changing the Internet landscape in the Philippines — possibly even killing Internet freedom.
As a sign of protest, please take down your profile pictures and cover photos and change it to a simple black image.
We also call on website administrators in the Philippines to take down/blacken their websites starting 12 midnight in protest of the looming implementation of the draconian law. There are several plugins available in the net to do so (GIYF).
With enough websites participating, we can be a formidable force that can compel the government to think twice.
If you’re active on social media you can change your social media profiles and show your friends, followers about this law suppressing Internet freedom. If you have your own website or blog follow the instructions here on how to participate on Website Blackout Protest self hosted blogs, Blogger and Tumblr is supported by the script.
