I did a search and didn't come across this anywhere on here, so thought I would post this.


A new photo is doing the rounds on the Internet. It shows members of the Polish parliament holding print-outs of the notorious Guy Fawkes mask in front of their faces, homage to an unofficial symbol of the Anonymous cyber collective.

The reason: they’re protesting the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a treaty that seems to carry echoes of SOPA and Internet censorship.

Over at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, U.S. Congressman Darrell Issa has claimed ACTA is more dangerous than SOPA, largely because lawmakers like him can’t do anything to change it once enforced. “It’s not coming to me for a vote,” he said. “It purports that it does not change existing laws. But once implemented, it creates a whole new enforcement system and will virtually tie the hands of Congress to undo it.”

All I can think of is all the Polish jokes Americans used to tell...

So while the people in the US are sitting on their @ss...

The Polish are fighting for YOUR right to sit here and read this website you enjoy so much. If you have sat on your computer and bitched and complained about any of these bills being passed, but were too lazy to take the time to contact your representatives or to spread the word any farther than ATS...

I want you to hop up, head to the head, and look in the mirror. The person you are looking at is part of the reason bills like this even get considered.

To the Polish: Good job and thank you. Most Americans are too lazy to even send their thanks... but we appreciate it.

ACTA's EU future in doubt after Polish pause


Tusk's backtracking could spell the end of ACTA for the entire European Union. If Poland or any other EU member state, or the European Parliament itself, fails to ratify the document, it becomes null and void across the union. As it stands, there are already five member countries that have not even signed ACTA.

This makes me smile....
my father's maternal family emigrated from 'Poland' -- they were displaced German Russians....
I applaud this show of integrity....from the bottom of my heart

If only the US Congress had the same stones.
*sigh*
Thanks for this little glimpse into leadership members who know what is right and stand by it.

Ours are such pathetic tools.
Shameful. I am ashamed.
