Scott Walker has just hired a guy to run the deer population who doesn't believe people should be able to hunt for free in state parks and on public land. Heck, he doesn't believe in public land.

Pass it along.

Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

Just got alerted by Avaaz that the FCC is about to decide on whether or not to lift the ban which prevents companies from having media monopolies that are even more outrageous than the ones we've got now. (6 companies control about half of what we see... That's way too few.) We've got until the 5th to comment.

Here's the Avaaz petition link: http://www.avaaz.org/en/stop_the_media_barons//?cl=1629985483&v=12974

Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012 With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists. The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."
Original image and campaign source: reddit.

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

You may have seen the clip of the cop at UC using pepper spray on kids who are just sitting there with linked arms, but this video goes on to show how the crowd reacted to that incident. It's a little over eight minutes long. (And it pretty much shows that the kids who were sitting and protesting weren't blocking much of anything other than a concrete path across the quad, since there are people all around the protest -- and I do mean on every possible side.) I can't imagine anything more idiotic. A little patience and sooner or later the protesters would have dispersed in the direction of food, bathrooms, and classes. But pepper spray? That could have set off a real riot! Watch and see how close it came. Clearly, though, when someone on that police force realized that they'd crossed a line and that there were six dozen cameras proving it, they backed off in the face of the crowd response. Thank goodness.

I have to give credit to the police in Boston the other night. They were with us, they blocked the bridge, yeah, but they didn't take any aggressive actions at the protest, and what they did do was mostly traffic direction, keeping us on the route and the cars from the side streets out of it.

I cannot see the logic of being violent toward non-violent protesters. It's asking for trouble.

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

And marched around the North End of Boston with the Occupy Boston folks, as well as a whole lotta union folks, lots of older people (some of them clearly retirees), a few kids, and many other folks who are getting tired of the playing field being so very slanted right now. All shades of the human rainbow, too. Despite the rain and the cold it was a pretty decent, if noisy turnout and we walked for about two hours total. (We were escorted by cops the whole way, too, on either side.) Lots of media, too. And legal observers with notebooks who were happy not to have to write anything down. The chant of the evening was "Jobs Not Cuts". As one kid said to me, "I want to be a taxpayer. But first I need a job."

We meant to go to the Charlestown bridge and talk on it about how it needs repair. The cops wouldn't let us go on the bridge itself, but ironically, their line of "don't go here we're in riot gear" folks blocked traffic just as effectively as we would have. I mentioned that to one of the older cops and he sighed and said "long story..."

I'm hoarse, I tripped and fell (and nice people made sure I was all right, but my knee is coming up glorious colors), and I'm going to sleep like a rock, but it was a good experience. And there were lots of people looking out windows of hotels and things, some of whom were clearly cheering us on.

I got an email while I was sleeping that Mayor Bloomburg in NY was doing what had been done in Denver and Oakland and rousting out the Occupy camp in the middle of the night. Haven't read the news yet, to confirm, although I'm pretty sure it's true.

And I can't believe that he's that stupid. Didn't these mayors *notice* London burning earlier this year? We've got a whole lot of angry, frustrated people, most of them young, who feel like they've got nothing to lose, and by lucky chance we got a movement whose leaders, such as they were, are dedicated to non-violence. And the powers that be are busy arresting those leaders and trying to break up the movement. Which means the impetus for non-violence is going to be weakened. And young, angry people don't have great impulse control.

I remember the sixties. The property damage is going to be horrific. And unlike then, I doubt very much that it will stay in the "poorer" neighborhoods.

Idiots, just plain idiots. If you've got a peaceful protest, let it stay peaceful!

I'm pushing this on my LJ because I think it's important. Because when it comes right down to it, when faced with a fully grown woman and a fertilized egg, I can only say with confidence that one of them has a soul, and it isn't the egg. Two thousand years of discussion has never settled the question of when a potential life becomes ensouled. When it moves? But morning glories can move. When it can feel pain, the way the lowliest worm in the earth can feel pain? But a breathing, living woman, yes, her I'm sure of.

To me, the argument that "life begins at conception" meant to trump all other considerations -- is another way of saying that sperm are sacred -- that somehow they convey souls. And I can't see how anyone who understands what a "wet dream" is can believe that God wastes souls on bedsheets.

Even if I believed that an unsouled life begins at conception, I still would think that abortion and birth control are options which women should have access to. Because we make decisions about this life over that every time we sit down to eat. A fertilized egg is like a fertile seed -- yes, you might grow an oak, but you're far more likely to feed a squirrel. The incidence of miscarriages -- my grandmother had two, my mother one -- proves to me that pregnancy is not a guarantee.

And even if I did believe that souls begin at the moment of conception, I cannot conceive of a God so small that He would not receive the souls of innocents back into his care and would not hold them in the safety of his hands until another opportunity is granted to them.

And I'm not even going to go into the question of whether or not state constitutions are an appropriate place for this kind of argument. Unnuanced. Uncaring. How many women, who, like my mother and my grandmother never wanted to lose the child they carried, will find themselves criminals under these kinds of rules? How many women will die, or go blind, because of a pregnancy that their body cannot withstand? How many families will have the children they already love go hungry because the money won't stretch to feed one more?

Please, spread the word. This vote is coming up all too soon.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

The Italian parliament wants to classify the sign language used by the deaf with the kinds of gesture used by mimes. That has a lot of implications for the deaf community in Italy, and if you'd like to show some support to that community and make a different sort of gesture to the Italian parliament, go here: http://www.change.org/petitions/no-lmg-forza-lis/
