Hi, I am new to this Forum and I don't know how many Linux Ubuntu users have heard about The Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty which the US and 12 other countries are Planning on Signing but this Treaty contains Internet Censorship Bill SOPA in it and President Obama and some Government officials are planning on Fast Tracking this Treaty which means NO AMENDMENTS PASS THE TREATY AS IS, and if they do the internet will be silenced FOR GOOD, because this Treaty is sneaking Internet Censorship bill SOPA and in Government once a Treaty NOT A Congressional bill is agreed upon especially with 12 different countries IT CANNOT BE OVERTURNED.
Please read these links in regards to the Trans Pacific Partnership and how it will silence the internet with SOPA in it and FREE SPEECH:
Here are some video's in regard to the Trans Pacific Partnership and SOPA contained in the Treaty from YOUTUBE:
This should matter heavily to Linux Users because we have always tried to keep are operating system and are Internet free, sadly many big businesses and Government want to stop the Free and Open internet and if the Trans Pacific Partnership or better known as the TPP passes Congress and signed into law by President Obama who favors the Treaty, the internet as we know it will NO LONGER EXIST.
There are things you can do about it.
1st and foremost call Congress and Washington at 2022243121 and tell them NO to Fast Track which will allow this Treaty to have NO AMENDMENTS and also tell them HELL NO TO THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP as well as call Oregon Democrat Senator Ron Wyden and California Democrat Congresswoman Zoe Lorgren and tell them to push hard to put a block on the Trans Pacific Partnership. When SOPA came up in the Senate. Senator Ron Wyden put a Block on the bill that would only be allowed to go through if 60 votes passed in the Senate. Senator Wyden is the reason SOPA did not get through faster, considering he has another block to put in the Senate this year MAYBE SENATOR WYDEN CAN DO IT AGAIN
Oregon Democrat Senator Ron Wyden:
Phone Number (CALL) (202) 224-5244
California Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, she was a great help in stopping SOPA, perhaps she will do so again:
Phone Number (CALL)(202) 225-3072

Fight for the future another group that cares about FREEDOM ON THE INTERNET ALSO HAS A PETITION, Please sign it:
People please be aware that after December 3rd 2013 THIS TREATY WILL BE SIGNED AND SENT TO CONGRESS TO BE FAST TRACKED THROUGH, Don't wait, if the Trans Pacific Partnership passes SOPA is law of 12 countries including America. In Government a Treaty is binding and the only way to have it reversed is to go to international NO AMERICAN COURT so even Google could not file a lawsuit as easy and forums like this can be blocked from Search Engines and Shut Down for just having a picture of Mickey Mouse, why because Disney owns the rights to Mickey Mouse and you the poster who posted the picture COULD BE SUED. As well your own e-mail can have DEEP POCKET INSPECTIONS if the Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty passes Congress and is signed into law, Your e-mail's, Facebook pages will be spied upon and international court will make it all legal and the Treaty will override the US Constitution. There are other things the TPP will damage including Job Wages, NO LONGER MADE IN THE USA ON YOUR FOOD PRODUCTS SO YOU WON'T KNOW WHICH COUNTRY MADE YOUR FOOD, Getting Cheaper Generic Drugs, Countries suing other countries for saying there countries get paid less for the same work you are doing at whatever job you have, therefore you will have to take a pay cut. There is plenty the TPP will do to America YET Corporate owned Media like CNN Time Warner Owned and Newscorp Fox News will not report on the TPP because they have a seat and money on the table for the Trans Pacific Partnership and they want Congress to fast track and Ram it through, DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN. 2022243121 call the number tell the operatop your Zip Code and tell your Senators and Representatives **NO TO THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP**.
