Groups Protest Net Censorship

Thousands of angry Internet users are flooding the phones, faxes and email boxes of their senators and representatives today at the same time a congressional conference committee sits down to crank out the final draft of a massive and sweeping telecommunications bill.

A National Internet Day of Protest calls for concerned citizens to tell lawmakers "that the Internet community will not tolerate Congressional attempts to destroy the Internet, limit our freedoms and trample our rights." The action is being organized by a handful of groups active in free speech and technology, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and the Voters Telecommunications Watch (VTW).
