The House of Reps and Senate are both considering bills that would severely affect the freedoms of the American people. The “Stop Online Piracy Act” in the House of Reps and its companion legislation “Protect IP” in the Senate would make it legal to shut down web sites that have any content which infringes on copyright. This will endanger sites like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit, Etsy, Tumblr – any site with user-generated content. This will censor the free speech of millions of Americans across the country and benefit only the interest of corporations.
Corporations in the recording and movie industries are pouring millions of dollars into these two bills. This is exactly the kind of corporate influence in politics that Occupy Chicago is here to fight! We propose that we publicly denounce these two bills, and mobilize our supporters to call their senators and congressmen to voice their strong opposition, and take action to fight these bills!
