Despite the best efforts of ourselves and others, reports are still coming in that the mandatory filtering plan has now been 'scuttled', and twitter (and I'm sure many other social media outlets) is still on fire with the celebratory news. Here's an update of some of the things that people have been doing to continue the opposition to Labor's mandatory filtering proposal:
I'll be speaking at a forum on filtering in Brisbane on 26 March. Details have not been released yet, but the organiser plans to run similar forums in March in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. Stay tuned for details.
EFA is producing a set of fact sheets for politicians about the mandatory filtering proposal. This is something that we could use some help with. Being a volunteer organisation, we often struggle to find the time to do what needs to be done. So I've created a wiki to reach out for help from the public in our campaigns. If you think you can help with writing (or even fact and copy checking) some high quality fact sheets, please help us out.
