Anonymous Protesters

Australia is facing a major censorship threat from its own Federal Government when Senator Conroy proposes ISP-level Internet filtering to protect the children, as they say. However, no one knows how this scheme will effectively work or how it will accidentally block other websites. Even the Senator could not provide a clear answer himself. Although this is a fundamental issue in a developed country, like Australia, that we are taking for granted, media coverage to remind us of this problem is still very poor. In Sydney, as well as the other Australian capital cities, Internet-based communities are fighting for a basic right to express themselves. We still need ripple effects to spread the words about this sneaky policy and stop the Government snatching away one of the most important rights in our society, communication.
