'Kill the Bill' campaign launched


Announcing this morning the launch of a website that will be illegal after 1 January 2008:
The Free Speech Coalition was formed to fight the Electoral Finance Bill’s grave threat to free speech. It’s aim is to inform the public through an advertising campaign of the impact of the Bill, if passed, on our rights and freedoms...
The Coalition has been formed as a Trust, with trustees David Farrar, Bernard Darnton and Cameron Slater, who have all blogged on the effects of the Bill.
The Coalition aims to spend every dollar we get on an advertising campaign against the Bill.
You can help Kill the Bill.
If you have any interest at all in opposing this bill that will ban free speech for one-third of your life, then head over there now with your wallet out -- and help KILL THE BILL!

In the United States, a non-profit organization named "The Free Speech Coalition" has existed for over 10 years. The Free Speech Coalition is the trade association for the Adult Entertainment Industry--pornography, sex toys, etc.

And so your point is that people who enjoy having sex should not have the right to free speech.

And they defend and advocate all forms of free speech anyway don't they? I'm thinking of the Larry Flynt outfit, is FSC a different porno free speech organization?

No, they don't defend all types of free speech. The only speech they are concerned with is sexual expression. They are a trade association, and like any trade association, their concern is industry profits.
