Anonymous: CISPA Internet Blackout April 22nd | #CISPABlackout


..

Dear citizens of the internet,

We are Anonymous.

The United States Government is again attempting to control and censor the internet. The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act has just recently passed the house.

This bill would allow major internet entities such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google to voluntarily share your personal information with the U.S. Government. This will not only effect users in the United States, but also anyone with an account with these companies.

This upcoming Monday, April the 22nd, we invite you to join Anonymous in a internet blackout. We encourage all web developers and website owners to go dark on this date. Display a message as to why you are going dark, and encourage others to do the same.

We hope, just like the successful protest over the Stop Online Piracy Act, we can encourage the senate to stop this bill.

Spread the message, and inform the world.

What started off as a trip to the mall to get sushi and shop, ended up as a day that has forever changed my life. I was on a mission to eat sushi that day, and when I’m on a mission, nothing will deter me. When I arrived at the Eaton Center mall, I walked down to the food court and spotted a sushi restaurant. Instead of walking in, sitting…

At the Century 16 Theater situated in the Town Center Mall, Aurora, Colorado during the midnight premiere of the movie “The Dark Knight Rises” a gunman (James Eagan Holmes ) opened fire, shooting indiscriminately. The gunman entered the theater about 20 to 30 minutes after the show started, setting off smoke bombs and running up and down the aisles firing as many as four weapons at viewers.

12 people were killed and as many as 50 people were injured including members of the U.S. military. Police said 10 victims died inside the theater, while dozens of others were taken to local hospitals, including a 6 years old child.

Jessica Ghawi known professionally and on Twitter as Jessica Redfield, an aspiring sports blogger, was one of those killed. She had moved to Colorado from San Antonio only a year ago.

She was a person full of zest and very friendly as could be seen in the conversations she had on Twitter. The above photo is from Twitter.

Earlier in June, after having narrowly escaped an irrational shooting at a mall in Toronto, Canada, she wrote the article “Late Night Thoughts on the Eaton Center Shooting,” a foreboding of what was to come.

The following is the last Twitter conversation Jessica had with a friend on the night she was killed.
