The blacklist bill is close to being toast

I received the following from Demand Progress and it's good news. Enjoy.

More Than 700k Have Acted: Let's Finish Strong

It's been a show of force like no other: More than 700k anti-censorship contacts have been delivered to Congress so far this week, as the Blacklsit Bill gets heard in committee.

What an amazing day -- let's top it off with one more push. Please send one more message to Congress -- even if you already have -- touting our numbers and telling them they need to back down. Let's make it clear that the Internet has risen up, and won't back down until Congress heeds our calls.

Please just use the form at right to send one more message to Congress.

The Stop Online Piracy Act would ruin so much of what's best about the Internet: It will give the government and corporations new powers to block Americans' access to sites that are accused of copyright infringement, force sites like YouTube to go to new lengths to police users' contributions, and put people in prison for streaming certain content online.

Just use the form at right to send one more message to Congress to help us finish strong today.

And please use the links below to ask your friends to join -- and if you ahve a website, please link back to our petition page.

With both parties against this bill it is sure to die. You,me,we did it and I want everyone out there to celebrate. But before you celebrate fill out the petition and let them know that we are serious about preserving our freedoms and that we won't allow them to be taken from us.
