Get outraged about the UK Internet censorship

From Infowars:

http://www.infowars.com/?p=3730

In response to increasing flagrant attempts to censor political websites, including Infowars and Prison Planet, not in Communist China, but in the U.S. and the UK, we are running a special contest with a top prize of $5,000 in order to encourage people to get active and educate others about the growing threats to Internet freedom.

As we reported yesterday, major transportation hubs like St. Pancras International, as well as libraries, big businesses, hospitals and other public outlets that offer wi-fi Internet, are blacklisting alternative news websites and making them completely inaccessible to their users.

On weekly basis we receive e mails from across the US and the UK from people who have attempted to visit our websites yet found them to be blocked by filtration software that lists them as â??hateâ? or â??violenceâ?.
This precedent is merely the first indication of what is planned for the Internet over the next 5-10 years, with the traditional web becoming little more than a vast spy database that catalogues peopleâ??s every activity and bombards them with commercials, while those who comply with centralized control and regulation of content will be free to enjoy the new super-fast Internet 2, where DVD quality movies can be downloaded in seconds, but at the cost of the Internet losing its role as the last true outpost of freedom of speech.

The necessity to warn people of this agenda is no more pressing than now, and this is why we are launching a contest to create the most powerful video presentation detailing the growing cancer of Internet censorship.

    i remember when this story first broke and alex made it seem like all of the uk was blocking his site when it wasjust a few free public wifi area's i know for a fact that the free wifi areas in my town are not blocking infowars ... i went there a couple of weeks ago while testing the wifi on a friends laptopat work.but it is inevitable and there is nothing we can do to stop it ...... i have told many people about this but the majority seem to be fine with it as they think its justifed due to child porn,sex and hate speech polluting the web. to be honest i would not miss infowars its full of over sensationalized biased news items anywayif they stopped all the fear mungering they would not be blocked.

    Why didn't Paul Watson contact St. Pancras and ask them about the internet policy, hardly good journalism. http://www.stpancras.com/There are also videos on this website that can me seen or misconstrued as 'hateful' or 'violent', what are the Admin of this site doing about that? Why not voluntary moderate yourself before its forced upon you?

    A relatively new law, or more specifically "process in action", has been designed to block child pornography from of the UK - a noble cause - but Frank Fisher, a resident IT expert type from the Guardian, has spotted some flaws its seemingly innocent sheeny surface. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/jan/17/caughtintheweb
