Yesterday, Electronic Frontiers Australia launched their campaign
against the Australian government's plan to impose mandatory Internet filtering on its citizens, a move that would bring our Internet in line with such great free states as China, Iran and Syria.
ďAustralians support an Open Internet that empowers individuals to decide what they view online,Ē said Peter Black, EFAís campaign manager. ďAustralians support an Open Internet that trusts parents to monitor what their children view online.Ē
The campaign is centred around a new website, OpenInternet.com.au, blog, and Facebook fan page, that together will act as campaign hub for all the different individuals and organisations that are campaigning against the Governmentís mandatory Internet filtering policy.
There are several other groups rallying behind this cause, but AusGamers strongly believes the EFA is the one that is most capable of representing Australians and we encourage you to support them as best as possible.
As hardcore Internet users, AusGamers is firmly opposed to the idea of any sort of restriction to this amazing medium, especially one that will almost certainly be utterly ineffective. Head over to OpenInternet.com.au
