The Australian Greens is amplifying its opposition to Labor's ISP-level internet filtering proposal with plans to host a 'Stop the Internet Filter' forum in Sydney next month.
Announced Wednesday, the event will be attended by Greens Senator Scott Ludlam, Greens NSW Senate candidate Lee Rhiannon and Sydney-based journalist and blogger Antony Lowenstein.
Attendees have been invited to "discuss internet censorship issues" with the trio in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills on 7 July.
"Communications Minister [Stephen Conroy] has announced plans to introduce an internet filter which will restrict Australians' access to the internet and establish a system for widespread government censorship of the internet," the politicians posted.
Ludlam has been a vocal opponent of the filter, tabling in the Senate on Monday an anti-filter petition containing more than 19,000 signatures.
