Online Discussion on the Future of Internet Postponed in Support of SOPA Strike

Session with Michael Moore, Chris Hedges, Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers, Birgitta Jonsdottir, and Jimmy Holovat Will Be Held 24 Hours Later on Thursday, January 19, at 5 PM

WASHINGTON - January 18 - In solidarity with a world-wide website blackout to protest the SOPA and PIPA censorship bills, RevolutionTruth and all six panelists on our Occupy 2012 panel (Michael Moore, Chris Hedges, Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers, Birgitta Jonsdottir, and Jimmy Holovat) have agreed to “go dark”, close down the RevolutionTruth website, and resume this panel 24 hours later on Thursday January 19 at 5 p.m. EST.

"We stand in solidarity with companies around the world that are backing the SOPA Strike and an Internet blackout. This is a global protest against a shameful assault on net neutrality. We’ve rescheduled a livestreaming panel discussion with Michael Moore, Chris Hedges, Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers and others to join this protest. Our site will be shut down on January 18th, along with sites such as Google, Reddit, and Wikipedia."  Tangerine Bolen, Executive Director, RevolutionTruth.
