There has been previous protests against the IP Bill such as opgchq (deltails below) and more recently a campaign dubbed “Blackout UK” by calling on support for websites in UK to block or restrict access in support of their slogan “Stop internet censorship, fight back”. A software engineer from Southampton is requesting people email major websites asking for support, contacting politicians and sigining a petition
Liberty arranged a crowdfunder in an effort to raise £10,000.00 for legal action, this initial 10k target was smashed and it is expected that £50,000.00 will be raised within the next day or so, surpassing expectations.
