Join Demand Progress 
As We Encourage Wikipedia To Protest The Internet Blacklist Bills
(PIPA and SOPA)
By Going Black Next Week

Wikipedia is considering "going black" to protest Internet censorship legislation pending before Congress. Wikipedia is a non-profit organization, and if enough Internet users pledge to donate at least $1 to Wikipedia, it will reduce the burden on them if they choose to join the protests. Demand Progress -- the organization running this campaign -- will update you once Wikipedia makes a final decision.

If Wikipedia goes through with a blackout, we'll alert everyone who pledged to donate and give them instructions about how to do so; at this time we're collecting pledges to donate, not donations. (This campaign is being run by Demand Progress, which has no formal affiliation with Wikipedia, but is thoroughly supportive of its work and mission.)










Use these buttons to encourage your friends to join our efforts:





    Submit this form to promise to donate to Wikipedia if they "go dark" in protest:

    (we'll contact you later to collect the donation)
    (I'm not in the US)



    NOTE: Pledging to donate will automatically generate a letter from you to your senators & representatives asking them to oppose PIPA & SOPA. The text is below, which you can edit.
     Demand Progress does not share your email address without your permission. We'll send updates on this & other campaigns by email. You can unsubscribe from our list anytime.
