Media Roundup of Bill C-11 (Internet Lockdown) Coverage
Protests against an Internet lockdown in Canada were organized in four major cities in Canada, and despite our winter cold, people still made it out with signs, songs, and a clear message: No Internet Lockdown in Canada!
Here are links to media coverage of the protests:
- Montreal Gazette: Proposed changes to copyright law go too far, protesters say
- Montreal Gazette: C-11 protest gets a hand from Norman Bethune
Though the protests weren't as well attended as one could have hoped, the online movement against Bill C-11 has steadily been gaining momentum. Since we launched our No Internet Lockdown campaign in January, 51,000+ Canadians have signed the petition, garnering lots of media attention. Here are some of our favorites:
