Australian Internet Censordyne Anti-Censorship Ad

Personally, I think there is nothing like poking fun at the stupidity of certain initiatives to illustrates how flimsy and foolish they are. Laughter, IMHO, is the greatest weapon in the activist’s arsenal.

Great little ad from Australia’s GetUp on the plans of the Rudd government for internet filtering throughout the whole country (yes, shockingly for a democracy like Australia, the same sort of thing you’d expect from China, Iran and some other sadly misguided repressive regimes).

Cute and effective. Love the idea of censordyne as a toothpaste like product.

Disclosure: I’ve just accepted an offer with GetUp and will be moving to Australia, but would have posted this up anyway. ;-) )
