Stop Internet Censorship for Good

    1. Sponsored by

      <span>CREDO Action</span>

On January 18, with the Senate poised to vote on legislation that would end the internet as we know it, hundreds of organizations participated in a one-day strike and day of action against internet censorship.

The results have been amazing. After the national day of action, 71 members of Congress came out in opposition to this legislation.

And on January 20, in a victory for those millions of anti-censorship activists, leaders in the Senate and House of Representatives announced that they were pushing back the votes on the Protect IP Act and its companion bill, SOPA.

But we can't stop fighting yet. Although this legislation has been tabled for now, we need to keep pressure on the members of Congress who still support these censorship bills. They need to continue to hear that Americans want them to protect our free and open internet and come out in opposition to these bills.

Tell the remaining co-sponsors of this legislation to protect our free and open internet and drop their support of this censorship legislation.

In order to make sure that these bills will never become law, we need more senators and representatives to voice their opposition to the legislation. And we need those who have co-sponsored the legislation to end their sponsorship.

Every additional member of congress who comes out in opposition to these bills is another nail in the coffin for internet censorship.

Tell the remaining co-sponsors of this legislation to protect our free and open internet and drop their support of this censorship legislation.

Help ensure that this legislation is truly dead. Tell the remaining co-sponsors of this legislation to protect our free and open internet and drop their support of this censorship legislation.

We know that when we band together to send a clear message to Congress, they listen. Let's make sure we keep the drum beat going.

To:
Congress
Millions of Americans have spoken out to oppose the Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act. It's time for you to listen to the American people, not the lobbyists, and drop your co-sponsorship of legislation that will allow censorship of the internet.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
