A message from DemandProgress.org:
Inspired yet? That's a photo of some of the 2,500 real live human beings who showed up outside of New York Senator Chuck Schumer's office yesterday to protest censorship. (They closed down half of Third Avenue.)
We helped organize the event: Hundreds of Demand Progress members were there, and I spoke along with a dozen members of the New York tech community.
Yesterday was amazing, in so many ways -- and to top it off, more than 80,000 people have emailed President Obama urge him to veto SOPA and PIPA.
President Obama has expressed concerns about the bills, but hasn't pledged to veto them yet.
Please click here to urge President Obama to promise to veto SOPA and PIPA if they manage to make it through Congress.
There's enough opposition to these bills now that even if they pass, the won't be able to overcome a veto. A promise to veto the bills will force opponents into a full retreat, and be the perfect way to cap off this week's protests.
We'd be able to declare a victory for the Net, free speech, and democracy.
Thank you! It's extraordinary: After more than a year of fighting, we're on the verge of winning this thing.
