A worldwide protest against ACTA

Hello my fellow elitepvpers! As you may know already, SOPA and PIPA are down for the count, but now a new danger to the internet and free speech arises. ACTA, threatening to censor not only the internet, but everything else as well. ACTA stands for "Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement", this basically means that your internet service provider will have to monitor your actions if you are accused of breaking a trademark agreement. So if you'll post a video, picture, tweet, blog update or anything that can be protected by copyrights, your ISP will have nothing left to do but to punish you, or be accused as accomplices.

Now the users of the internet are making a stand, a massive worldwide protest will take place soon enough, so find the nearest rally point and join the good fight! ACTA Protests Worldwide - Google Maps
Here you see a list of locations, and underneath every one of them, is a facebook link with specific details.

Don't forget to Like this post on Facebook, Google+, Tweet it, and shout in the streets if you have to!

Why fight? Take a look, I think this video explains everything.
If you still have any questions, take a look at this, and you'll get it.
A special thanks goes to PortalDark for this awesome graph, that explains what we're losing if this bill passes.

We here at elitepvpers, usually remain neutral, but it's obvious that this will not lead to anything good, so we encourage you to fight if you can. Don't let future generations suffer censorship because the older generation does not know how the internet works!

Thanks for your time,
TheConArtist

UK HM goverment offical Petition

With all the petitions on the internet its hard to know where to show your support.

If you live in UK your official government vote petition is found on the direct government website.

Hey,

this is not a petition, this is a url to google maps where events are linked all across europe, all at the 11. february 2012 to demonstrate in tons of cities at the same time, no virtual petition no one can see, this is one step further, this is the step into public

Won't need to be a miracle. You think the public? you think WE will allow this? HELL NO this will cause a civil war bad move if the government does this! Sounds like they are trying to turn the united states into another North Korea. But I promise you this there would be an uprising and we do out number our government!

This is my idea.... for the US players on CO, we pick a day, go to California(TQ's US base) and march around their place all day long... we will have picket signs, and we can yell stuff.... we can have a protest about TQ's lottery, and let our voices be heard about what they are doing with CO, and how every patch so far is just made for them gettting more money... (they also have a base in Shanghai, Japan, and China(their HQ).... if anyone is near there, they can go that day and protest...
