Tomorrow, October 2, the Supreme Court sitting en banc is set to hear several petitions for prohibition against the Cybercrime Prevention Law.
If the high court junks these petitions and disapproves the request for a temporary restraining order (TRO), the Cybercrime Prevention Law
will take effect the following day, forever changing the Internet landscape in the Philippines -- possibly even killing Internet freedom.
As a sign of protest, please take down your profile pictures and cover photos and change it to a simple black image.
We also call on website administrators in the Philippines to take down/blacken their websites starting 12 midnight in protest of the looming implementation of the draconian law. There are several plugins available in the net to do so (GIYF).
With enough websites participating, we can be a formidable force that can compel the government to think twice.
Our dear Filipino netizens, the government is taking the Internet away from us. It is but just to reclaim it in all ways possible.
NETIZENS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!

THIS IS A VIOLATION OF OUR HUMAN RIGHTS - THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION. We need everyone from everywhere. Let the government feel that we are in protest!

As some of you may know, I write nontraditional hubs. I pull in what I would consider ok traffic from outside Hub ( 2k a week average) but I am only making 30 cents a day on adsense anymore and very little on ebay. Now...

Hubbers are curious about the HubPro Program and even those chosen to participate often don't know as much as they'd like about it.To me, it seems like it would be obvious that posting links to hubs HubPro editing has...
