The Federal Government is planning to force all Australian servers to filter internet traffic and block any material the Government deems ‘inappropriate’. Under the plan, the Government can add any ‘unwanted’ site to a secret blacklist.
Testing has already begun on systems that will slow our internet by up to 87%, make it more expensive, miss the vast majority of inappropriate content and accidentally block up to 1 in 12 legitimate sites. Our children deserve better protection – and that won’t be achieved by wasting millions on this deeply flawed system.
I’ve just signed a petition to prevent the scheme that will make the internet up to 87% slower, more expensive, accidentally block up to one in 12 legitimate sites, will miss the vast majority of inappropriate content and is very easily sidestepped. The government of the day may add any ‘unwanted’ site to a secret blacklist under the scheme.
Our Government should be doing all in its power to take Australia into the 21st century economy, and to protect our children.
This proposed internet censorship does neither except gag free speech and adopt total political control.
Cast your vote to save the net from “Big Brother” the last international media they cannot stop unless you allow them?
Australia with only 22 million people, more government and public servants than any other country, not to mention the $billions it cost to maintain this millstone around our neck, power crazed pollies like Super Spy, Bob Debus need to be seen to be active, with his new empire he has build along lines of the USA Home Security.
This computer clamping is just the way to condone more dictatorship under the flag of democracy,
Shutting down the people to an even lower subservient levels than we have been forced into since the party faithful sheeple vote has for decades allowed these politicians to run unchecked, something your forefathers would never have let happen, nor would have tolerated at anytime.
When can we expect a change and call Australia OUR COUNTRY, not any bloody governments domain to dictate?
