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

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.

Please spread the word.
: 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.
