"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." - George Washington

THE WEB GOES ON STRIKE! Read All About It!

 

NOTE: After experiencing the day of protest about SOPA/PIP it is clear that the action could better be called a Web Blackout rather than a Strike.

 

TAKE ACTION! Google has a form.

 

Full quote: "If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

From an address to officers of the Army (15 March 1783)
