Power in your hands

Stand: 2002-06-19: RIP Order: Sometimes, you win.:
STAND comments on how the government’s climbdown over proposals to extend the RIP Act was influenced by the weight of public opinion. That means us, people. This is a refreshing change. There was a weight of public opinion about the initial passing of the RIP Act — I faxed my MP and got involved with the Foundation for Information Policy research, and none of it made any difference. But this has, much like the weight of opinion in the US striking down the Communications Decency Act. This is great; the massed voices do make a difference, sometimes. It’s nice to not feel entirely powerless. ——-
