Greetings United States gov,
We are the Internet. Again, you are trying to pass this ridiculous CISPA law in order to control and censor the people. This will not stand. You already control the medias, the economy, the criminal underworld, your national plots and our energy. YOU WILL NOT GET OUR INTERNET!
The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally untouchable government spies just passed the House.
This bill affects everyone not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen. This law broadened the state terror and repression of the people. By allowing corporations to track our every action on the internet the state and corporations will be merged and that we have seen before: it is called fascism.
We are going dark on MONDAY April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for 24 hours to protest your illogical and terrorizing bill against the Internet itself. Even with the whole Internet crying out to stop this BILL, the US House of Representatives failed to do so blinded by lobbyist’s money and cum in your eyes. So we will take action ourselves and open your eyes. Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. DronObama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate. Take this as a protest or a warning, as you wish. One thing is for certain, neither you or anyone else in this world can control the Internet, so don’t even try. Stop wasting taxpayers’ money into doing these kind of shenanigans.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
With CISPA, U.S Congress is turning websites we love into a system for tracking and monitoring us all. But there’s still time to stop it. We’re planning the largest protest in history for online privacy. Can you join in? http://www.sitesnotspies.org/
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 and other u.s based websites including email, and banking.

Cispa bill on cyber security passed by the US House
The US House of Representatives has passed the controversial Cyber Information Sharing and Protection Act.
Cispa is designed to help combat cyberthreats by making it easier for law enforcers to get at web data.
This is the second time Cispa has been passed by the House. Senators threw out the first draft, saying it did not do enough to protect privacy.
Cispa could fail again in the Senate after threats from President Obama to veto it over privacy concerns.

Oppose Cispa if you value any privacy in our digital world
Cyber-security is a real problem, but Congress’ latest Cispa bill tries to solve it by attacking the freedom of the internet
If you are eligible to vote in the United States, please take a break from whatever you’re doing today and call your member of the US House of Representatives. Tell the staff member who answers the phone that you value your privacy. And tell him or her that you are deeply unhappy that the House seems poised to destroy everyone’s online – and by extension offline – privacy by passing the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (Cispa).
You might also mention that you’re not a “14-year-old tweeter in the basement,” which is how the chief backer of this wretched legislation has described its countless opponents.
The House is likely to vote on Cispa Thursday morning. On Tuesday, a committee rejected a collection of amendments aimed at fixing a billwhose main goal, purportedly, is to help the nation protect itself from malicious hackers, criminal and governmental. It invites companies like internet service providers to share information so they can coordinate defenses.
Worthy ideas in the abstract, but horrible in the details: cyber-security is a genuine concern, as we’ve seen repeatedly. But this bill is easily the worst attack on the open internet since the infamous Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa), an online censorship bill that was killed in the wake of widespread opposition early last year.

CISPA passes U.S. House: Death of the Fourth Amendment?
The controversial cybersecurity Bill has passed the U.S. House and is now on its way to the Senate chamber. Privacy groups believe this tramples on the Fourth Amendment.
The controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) just passed the U.S. House, and will now head to the upper Senate chamber for further deliberation.
Rinse and repeat. This isn’t the first time that this has happened, but it still poses a major threat to Fourth Amendment rights, according to civil liberties campaigners.
CISPA will allow private sector firms to search personal and sensitive user data of ordinary U.S. residents to identify “threat information,” which can then be shared with other opt-in firms and the U.S. government — without the need for a court-ordered warrant.
This means a company like Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other technology or telecoms company, including your cell service provider, would be legally able to hand over vast amounts of data to the U.S. government and its law enforcement — for whatever purpose it deems necessary — and face no legal reprisals.
