Anybody for a blackout?

Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-03-20

A while back, kiwi protesters blacked out their facebook/myspace/etc profile pictures (and blogs if possible) to protest against some nastiness by their new government about internet connections (see Solidarity With Kiwi Internetters 2009-02-20).

Would it be a good idea to do the same sort of thing here in protest at Conroy’s stupidities?  Those politicians on facebook/myspace and seeing a whole lot of black boxes where their friends faces normally appeared might take the hint.

So… anybody out there good at organizing or know someone who is?

    Contacting all the friends of a “Pollie” would surely be interpreted as SPAM, wouldn’t it?.
