Australians Against Internet Censorship

The Australian government is currently quietly going ahead with plans to filter all Australian's access to the internet in a manner similar to the People's Republic of China and Iran.

This is despite the facts that
  • The filter will significantly slow down the internet for all Australians. Trials in Tasmania and Brisbane showed the most efficient filter caused an 87% reduction in net speed.
  • The filters trialled blocked as much as 7.8% of legitimate websites. That's close to 1 in 10. Whilst as much as 13% of material that should have been blocked was still accessible.
  • Websites will also be blacklisted without your knowledge or consent. If your websites is blacklisted there will be no legal means to appeal the decision.
  • The filter represents a dangerous erosion of our freedom and civil liberty
So, before this terrible idea is enacted we call on Australians to
