Labor has announced that it wants ISPs to be responsible for blocking Internet porn, especially to our children. All the media is carrying the story today. But the Liberal Communications Minister Helen Coonan said the plan is unworkable, and computer-based filtering was the way to go.
- Write to Kim Beazley, who announced the plan, and tell him you support his idea: Kim.Beazley.MP@aph.gov.au.
- Write to Senator Coonan, and express your displeasure at her unwillingness to get on board. ISP-level filtering is possible, although somewhat costly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- There is a voteline on this issue in today’s Age. Please enter your ‘yes’ vote here: theage.com.au/polls/form.html.
- Write to your local Federal Member, and say you support this idea.
