We Need To Support Turkish Protest Against Their Government's Internet Filters

Right wing in less government is one thing but when it comes to try tell people what to do or think (we've got lots of those in the US too), it's definitely something we need to watch out for and fight against.  

Anyway, the Turkish censorship scheme is to take efforts very soon in August.  From the Mashable post, which isn't all that clear, there is a recognizable pattern of slowing putting the squeeze on things.  And there is fear that this is Ankara's way monitoring its citizens.

Anyway, if folks knows a way of voicing support, let us all know.  Because other governments are watching to see if they can do the same thing. Even Western ones.  For better or worse, that's life.
