[liberationtech] Vote Against India's Internet Censorship Law

Dear all,
As some of you might know, last year the Indian government passed a new
Internet censorship law that:

*    Allows anyone to censor any material from the Internet within 36
hours, even if it is not illegal in India.
*    Does not give the person whose website or content has been removed
any chance to object.
*    Does not let the government and the public to know what content has
been censored on what websites.

P. Rajeeve, a Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha, has introduced a
motion asking for this law to be scrapped.

We've put together a page from which you can tell[1] your MP to
represent you and vote against the Internet censorship law. Make your
voice heard:

Please spread the word.

Regards,
Pranesh

 [1]: We've created a page from which you can e-mail your MPs, and then
call them using the contact details provided.  181 of 543 members of the
Lok Sabha (the lower house of Parliament) have not provided their e-mail
addresses, so phoning would be required.
