Protest against the Digital Economy Bill this Wednesday
It's time to show MPs what we think about the Digital Economy Bill.
As it stands now, the Bill, if passed into law, will allow disconnection, web blocking and could see the death of open wifi.
Come along to the ORG demo on Wednesday 24th March at 17:30 and protest against disconnection without trial and censorship on the Internet.
We'll have placards; just bring some black tape to gag or blindfold yourself.
Disconnection is a collective punishment. It is unacceptable, unfair and disproportionate.
The demo will be at Old Palace Yard (opposite Parliament, next to Westminster Abbey). Tell us you are coming by requesting a "ticket" - you don't need to bring this with you - we only want registrations so that we can contact you.
If you can't make it to London, why not set up your own demo? Choose a prominent place in your hometown; if possible, a local party HQ or MP constituency office, and let us know and we'll advertise it on our website.
