Saturday March 6 National Day of ActionMar 3 2010, 12:42
This Saturday 6 March 2010, some of the other organisations that are working for an Open Internet and against the Government’s impractical and costly policy of Government censorship are holding a series of events around the country:
Sydney: Block the Filter is holding a Cyber Safety Day Picnic from 1pm at Parramatta Park. See Facebook for details.
Melbourne: Stop the Filter is holding an event from 12 noon at the State Library. See Facebook for details.
Adelaide: Block the Filter is holding a Cyber Safety Day Picnic from 12 noon at Victoria Square. See Facebook for details.
Perth: Block the Filter is holding a Cyber Safety Day Picnic from 3pm at Stirling Gardens. See Facebook for details.
Brisbane: Stop the Filter will have an information table for petition signing from 12-3pm at the Myer Centre. See Facebook for details.
These events are not organised by Electronic Frontiers Australia but if you would like to show your opposition to the Government’s policy and support for an Open Internet, we would encourage you to go along.
Also, if you would like to donate to help Block the Filter recover their costs, you can do so:
If you would like to gather signatures for the EFA Senate Internet Censorship Petition on Saturday, please download and read the Senate Internet Censorship Petition – Instructions before printing the Senate Internet Censorship Petition and bringing it along to the event you are attending. As we are looking to present the first batch of signatures when Parliament next sits, we would ask that you return any printed signatures you have collected by Wednesday 10 March 2010.
Finally, if you plan on attending one of these events, you might like to print out some fliers and fact sheets to bring along and distribute:
- Colour Fliers: download the A6 flier (or 4 to a page for easy printing).
- Black and White Fliers: download A6 flier (or 4 to an A4 page for easy printing).
- Fact Sheets: download here.
