This morning following the opening session at theLearning@School 09 conference in Rotorua, New Zealand, I learned about the New Zealand Internet Blackout campaign from Dave Winter, ICT manager at Southwell School in Hamilton.
The New Zealand Internet Blackout protests against the Guilt Upon Accusation law ‘Section 92A’ that calls for internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny. This is due to come into effect on February 28th unless immediate action is taken by the National Party.
Take a moment and sign the petition online with your email address.
