Win for People Power in Australia! Can we do the same here?!
Sep 6, 2013 — In Australia, just two days before the upcoming election the Liberal-National Coalition revealed they would introduce an internet filter styled on the UK censorship model if elected. They buried this announcement in a “safety policy” PDF.
After just ONE DAY of public outcry they backed down claiming the web filter policy was an “error”.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
