Fellow concerned citizens; courtesy of Zenoxen I have obtained a list of 800 companies and corporations supporting CISPA: www.digitaltrends.com/web/cisp… Many of these are companies which we've all heard of: Hasbro, John Deere, Caterpillar, Coca-Cola. These are companies with millions if not billions of customers, who rely on the stock market - and by extension, public relations.

For this reason, I believe that now is a great time to coordinate an outreach to corporations based on public relations.

During the final week of April, I would like everybody who is capable to write a letter of protest to AT&T, Comcast, and/or Verizon. Their contact information can be found here: keepinformationfree.deviantart…

If millions of people do this, they will potentially be forced to back down to maintain their public relations.

I will be contacting Demand Progress and asking that they encourage their several thousand followers to write letters as well.

I still hope it fails. Of course some of the telecoms who are for it... have historically been for other warrantless wiretapping garbage in the past. :laughing:

That's like saying ____ [insert X#] third world dictators are FOR human rights violations. Doesn't mean as much as the spin doctors would like it to sound like it does. :lol:

Well, I'm happy to say I don't like to drink Coca-cola anyway. XD Now, they've found another way to leave a bad taste in your mouth, it seems.

Unfortunately, this will never end. Somewhere along the line someone will insist on another bill like these, and we won't be able to stop it in time. Everybody wants to be "free", but if the powers that be have their way, we will surrender all our free-DOMS in order to do so. Corporations will always support these things because they can influence leaders to follow their bandwagons and prostitute their morals for money.

That is true, but the one thing corporations care about is money, and their money comes from people buying their products. The problem is that if all corporations making a necessary product conspire to conform to the same agreement, they can force the general public into it, which is what ISPs are trying to do. So how do we retaliate? Find a way to do without their product. Let ISPs know that if they don't stop now, we will become our own ISP. I'm an amateur radio operator, which means I'm partly responsible for maintaining and operating an auxiliary system of emergency communication. If ISPs want to conspire against the People, I will set up an antenna and become my own ISP, and I'm encouraging other amateur radio operators to work with me on that.

Good luck. I would support this idea. The FCC will be knocking on your door because their puppet masters will hunt you down.

The Amateur Service exists so that the FCC can rapidly expand their pool of available telecommunications experts and electricians if necessary. It wouldn't be so easy for them to just eliminate us, especially if we aren't breaking any laws.
