Information on ACTA, TPPA and NDAA + protest linksTaken from :iconXarti: http://xarti.deviantart.com/journal/It-s-The-Season-of-Petitioning-Protests-283474190
Okay, though I'm a bit shy in posting this (I don't know if I am good explaining or wording this).
Here's my reasons why I don't support ACTA.
For a bill that's suppose to prevent piracy, here's what it will do:
Destroy freedom of speech - Especially on the internet.
Under ACTA, the government and the elite will censor what they considered as 'Copywrite Infringement.' By shutting down sites. They will have control over the information and we would be in the dark(The government has been meaning ), this would effect news sites and information sites as well, since they can't spread and/or report. Our blogs and online journals will be censored as well. All of this goes against America's Constitution of Freedom of Speech amendment.
Stifle trade, especially of generic medicines -
In seeking on how to protect brands from piracy under the name of patenting, ACTA will halt gen
International Day of Action Against ACTA updatedJoin the international day of action against ACTA on Feb. 11
On February 11, the world will be out in an unprecedented showing of solidarity against ACTA. Protests are being organized all over the globe to show the European Parliament that they must reject ACTA. Though many countries have signed the treaty already, if the EP rejects ACTA, it will be sent into the dustbin on history!
It's time we wielded the internet to defend the internet!
There's a map listed in the website, showing the links to every event aswell as the following countries:
some countries are protesting in different days (feb 4-feb 25) but mostly Feb.11
No info about any USA events to support this.
Go to the link and get informed on how to participate.

CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act)
What is CISPA?
---> The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a United States proposed law introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012. Prior to the amendments offered during final passage of the bill that would address many Adminstration concerns, President Obama threatened to veto the bill.
