A man in the streets faces a knife.
Two policemen are there it once. They raise a sign:
“Illegal Scene! Noone may watch this!”
The man gets robbed and stabbed and bleeds to death.
The police had to hold the sign.
Welcome to Europe, citizen. Censorship is beautiful.

The European Copyright directive threatens online communication in Europe.
But thanks to massive shared action earlier this year, the European parliament can still prevent the problems. For each of the articles there are proposals which fix them. The parliamentarians (MEPs) just have to vote for them. And since they are under massive pressure from large media companies, that went as far as defaming those who took action as fake people, the MEPs need to hear your voice to know that your are real.
If you care about the future of the Internet in the EU, please Call your MEPs.
