How to celebrate Earth Day: Boycott the internet & #StopCISPA

April 22, 2013

I had other plans for an Earth Day post but instead, I am supporting the #StopCISPA Boycott.

If WordPress makes it possible, I will black out my site until Tuesday.

For now, this cat (which you can download and upload to facebook and twitter to explain your absence),  video,CISPAcat and message from Anonymous will have to suffice.

What is CISPA?

Under the guise of cyber-security, CISPA (the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) is a bill that would grant corporations the power to share our emails, Facebook messages, and other sensitive online data with the government – all without a warrant.

CISPA would kill online privacy as we know it – nullifying the laws that require big corporations to keep our information private from government agencies like the National Security Agency. Those corporations wouldn’t have to notify you that they have done this and you wouldn’t be able to take legal action against them if they made a mistake when sharing your information.

While strong information security is critical to privacy and civil liberties, CISPA does almost nothing to prevent this. All it does is give the government access to your information.

We beat CISPA last year when hundreds of thousands of Americans signed online petitions to let lawmakers know that our online privacy rights are not negotiable. But this bill is back and politicians who want the government to be able to read your emails and see what you purchase online are hoping you won’t speak out this time.

Together we can beat CISPA again!
