In the first strike of its kind, hundreds of popular Internet sites such as Wikipedia, Wordpress, TorProject are to temporarily shut down Wednesday to protest anti-piracy bills they say essentially amount to censorship.
On January 18th, 2012 is the largest online protest in history, to stop the internet censorship bills, SOPA & PIPA. Join in by blacking out your site and urging everyone you can reach to contact Congress now. Google also plans a home page protest against U.S. Piracy measures.

On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill - PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House - to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit's lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day.
