Anonymous pushing for 'Internet Blackout Day' to protest CISPA

Anonymous want to protest CISPA, suggest 'Internet Blackout Day' for April 22

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 20, 2013 3:33 am

CISPA was passed in the House yesterday, not receiving much mainstream attention because the public eye is glued to the events in Boston and Texas, but Anonymous have your back. The hacking collective are wanting a protest against the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) on April 22.

 

 

The protest they want to see is an "Internet Blackout Day" where they want "web developers and website owners to go dark" and to also "display a message as to why you are going dark, and encourage others to do the same".
