Stop 114A Internet Blackout

The crew is supporting the Center for Independent Journalism (CIJ) initiative to raise awareness of the recent amendment to the Evidence Act 1950 with Section 114A – “Presumption of Fact in Publication” that was passed in both houses of Parliament.

Similar to the earlier SOPA/PIPA protest blackout, participating websites and blogs will be “blacked out” – displaying a pop-up stating the website/blog’s participation in the blackout initiative, with links to find out more about Amendment 114A. Unlike the SOPA/PIPA blackout, however, the website/blog will still be fully functional.

We have also changed our background to black as well in raising the awareness.

For more information about this initiative do access this site or the Facebook page to know more.
