Massive protests across Europe against ACTA are taking place. Everything about the issue has been thoroughly covered, I just wanted to give people a visual impression of what we're talking about - the resistence is truly massive, spreading wide and far like a forest fire.

Governments are probably kicking themselves for not trying to control the internet a lot earlier than now. Its too late now lol. Decades of non governmental intervention and they think they can have the internets back?, lolololol.

Yes, my impression is ACTA was being played out like a covert "compromise" (being an international trade agreement and not legislation) after the strong public opposition to SOPA/PIPA. And yet, look at what's happening.

We need to do this.. protest and rebel every time the weasels in government and large corporations (which are elements of the same institution, in a broader meaning of the word) come up with something like ACTA. The Internet is truly our last chance of creating a new society with (at least relatively) some shred of moral and intellectual integrity and exposing the criminal filth running the circus - which many of us as ATSers have been trying to do long before the perception of government/banking/large business corruption was so high.

As engineered crises - political, financial, cultural - continue avalanching toward an unprecedented catastrophe and the police state grip is getting tighter, we as citizens of our respective nations have not only the right, but the moral obligation to protect our freedoms.

It's ALL about information and how it is distributed. I'll say it again - the free internet is our last chance. If we lose that - we lose the battle, basically.
