Poles take to streets to defend web

TENS of thousands of Poles are expected to take to the streets on Friday as anger grows over the neoliberal fascists' attack on the global internet.

Despite widespread opposition, Poland on Thursday signed the ACTA treaty behind closed doors in Japan.

Under the guise of protecting 'copyright' this will in fact criminalise free expression on the web and is likely to lead to authorities blocking content they don't like.

After the signing, protesters rallied in the Polish cities of Poznan and Lublin to express their anger over the treaty.

An even bigger demonstration is planned for Warsaw later today, Friday January 27.

Anonymous hacktivists have already disabled a whole swathe of Polish government websites in protest at the move.
