This morning I received an email from Tiffiniy Cheng from the Fight For The Future group, regarding the SOPA/PIPA Legislation. It was great news:
A big hurrah to you!!!!! We’ve won for now -- SOPA and PIPA were dropped by Congress today -- the votes we’ve been scrambling to mobilize against have been cancelled.
The largest online protest in history has fundamentally changed the game. You were heard.
On January 18th, 13 million of us took the time to tell Congress to protect free speech rights on the internet. Hundreds of millions, maybe a billion, people all around the world saw what we did on Wednesday. See the amazing numbers here and tell everyone what you did.
This was unprecedented. Your activism may have changed the way people fight for the public interest and basic rights forever.
Thank you to everyone who has helped stop SOPA/PIPA. We will now be restoring our Photo gallery and members area now that there is no risk of us being shut down!
