Facebook supports CISPA
From Demand Progress:
Tell Facebook: Withdraw Your Support For CISPA
What is Facebook thinking? They've signed on in support of CISPA -- the new bill that would obliterate online privacy, give the military crazy new abilities to spy on the Internet, and potentially let ISPs block sites and cut off users accused of piracy.
First, please help push this viral on Facebook by using this link -- you'll be sharing the campaign, along with the photo of Mark Zuckerberg at right:
The Center for Democracy and Technology says, "CISPA has a very broad, almost unlimited definition of the information that can be shared with government agencies and it supersedes all other privacy laws."
According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation:
An ISP could even interpret this bill as allowing them to block accounts believed to be infringing, block access to websites like The Pirate Bay believed to carry infringing content, or take other measures provided they claimed it was motivated by cybersecurity concerns.
Internet users were able to push GoDaddy to withdraw its support of SOPA. Now it's time to make sure Facebook knows we're furious.

PETITION TO MARK ZUCKERBERG: What is Facebook thinking? You're encouraging Congress to obliterate online privacy -- Even as your users express increasing concern about the privacy of their accounts on your site. Please withdraw your support for CISPA right away.
Facebook is supporting CISPA. Ain't that fucking ironic considering facebook is shooting itself in the foot by supporting CISPA. What if facebook promotes something The Powers That Be don't approve of and facebook is blacklisted? They didn't think about that one obviously. If censorship is something that pisses you off then by all means sign the petition.
