BlackoutSpeakout: Canadian environmental organizations are using Wikipedia’s protest tactic of darkening their websites on June 4 to protest federal government 2012 Budget plans to slash environmental protection and environmental protest, anything that stands in the way of the oil sands and their pipelines.  The Wikipedia blackout was a very successful protest against proposed legislation in the United States – the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate – that, if passed, would seriously damage the free and open Internet, including Wikipedia. Americans were outraged by the blackout of their favorite websites like Wikipedia. Will Canadians feel the same way about the blackout of their environmental organizations?
