Subject: [free-culture] 9:30am Tomorrow: Will you be calling to stop the Peer to Peer File Sharing Hijacks Higher Education Reauthorization Bill?
Free Culture @ NYU,
Things have really come together in the last couple of
hours. After sending out the last post
we've had a lot of people come out and offer their time for
tomorrow. We've also renamed the "The College Opportunity and
Affordibility Act of 2007" to the "Peer to Peer File Sharing
Hijacks Higher Education Reauthorization Bill".
We're going to be going through the list of representatives
sponsoring this bill:
and calling their offices tomorrow, asking to speak with their
legislative directors so that we can make it clear that the
provision of the bill that forces colleges to filter their
students internet access should be removed.
Free Culture @ NYU will happily supply the coffee and bagels, you bring your
laptop and a Skypeout account, see
or your cell phone!
Here's the info:
Free Culture @ NYU Phone Bank
Tuesday, November 13th @ 9:30am

something to help stop Congress from breaking NYU's Internet and financial
