      CAMPAIGN TO STOP THE NET CENSORSHIP LEGISLATION IN CONGRESS
     On Tuesday December 12, 1995, Join With Hundreds of Thousands
                   Of Your Fellow Internet Users In
                   A NATIONAL INTERNET DAY OF PROTEST
       PLEASE WIDELY REDISTRIBUTE THIS DOCUMENT WITH THIS BANNER INTACT
                 REDISTRIBUTE ONLY UNTIL December 20, 1995
 ---------------------------------------
 Outrageous proposals to censor the Internet demand that the Internet Community
 take swift and immediate action. We must stand up and let Congress know that
 we will not tolerate their attempts to destroy this medium! Please join
 hundreds of thousands of your fellow citizens in a National Day of Protest
 on Tuesday December 12, 1995.
 A vote on this issue is exected to occur Tuesday 12/12. House Speaker Newt
 Gingrich (R-GA), who opposed the Original Exon/Coats CDA, along with Rep. Rick
 White (R-WA), are working to narrow the current proposals in an effort to
 protect freedom of speech and the viability of the Internet as a means of
 education and commerce. They and the rest of their colleagues in Congress
 need to hear from concerned citizens and the net.community before it is too
 late.
 On Tuesday December 12, CDT, VTW, EFF, EPIC, the ACLU, and other activist
 groups are urging you to join us in a National Day of Protest. The goal
 is to flood key members of the House and Senate with phone calls, faxes
 and email with the message that the Internet community WILL NOT TOLERATE
 Congressional attempts to destroy the Internet, limit our freedoms, and
 trample on our rights.
