Say NO to the Internet Censorship Bill

This petition had 42 supporters

The South African Government wants to censor your internet use!!

The National Assembly (Parliament) has passed the Films and Publications Amendment Bill (The internet Censorship Bill), which, when signed by President Ramaphosa into law, will effectively force YOU - social media user, to register with the FPB (Film and Publications Board) before you upload videos/content to various social media platforms.

The Government and FPB will have the powers to pre-classify and regulate your online content (i.e videos, music, pictures and publications) before you can share it on your social media platforms.

This will violate your rights to privacy, and your freedom of speech and expression. This is CENSORSHIP! 

Be the change and join us in saying NO to censorship!

• NO to censoring what we upload or watch on our social media sites.

• NO to infringing on our constitutional rights of privacy and freedom of expression.

• NO to blocking our online content and stopping our rights of choice. 

“Withholding information is the essence of tyranny. Control of the flow of information is the tool of the dictatorship.”
― Bruce Coville
