It's not surprising. The Occupy movement relies heavily on educating people through the internet. YouTube is one of the most important websites currently used to express what's actually going on in our country. This also means the free ability to share information and videos has become detrimental to people who are currently in powerful positions.

Right now the House of Representatives is trying to push a bill through that would give the government an ability to censor the internet.

In a poll from today, over 77% of people believe the bill is internet censorship and yet the House is still trying to push it through.

This has the highest potential to hit websites like: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Digg, Reddit, Tumblr, YouTube, Yahoo, and LinkedIn

This is why each of these companies is calling for America's support against censorship. This needs to be addressed, and addressed quickly.
