Refer Wikipedia Page on ACMA (Australian Media and Content Authority)

On 10 March 2009, ACMA issued the Australian web-hosting company, Bulletproof Networks, with an "interim link-deletion notice"[3][4] due to its customer, the Whirlpool internet community website, not deleting a link to a page on the anti-abortion web site abortiontv.com[5][6][7]. The web page — #6 of a series of pages featuring images of aborted fetuses — had been submitted to ACMA, who determined it was potential prohibited content, by the user whose post on Whirlpool containing ACMA's reply was later subject to the link-deletion notice.[8][9][7] This came with an $11,000 per day fine if the take down was not actioned after 24 hours. In order for other URLs contained on the same website to be 'prohibited', a separate complaint would need to be submitted and reviewed by the ACMA.

WHY

The DLC have been organising rallies in capital cities for the past three months raising awareness as to the governments plans to censor the internet and the negative impact involved.

This is only the tip of the wedge of censorship being driven into our society by a vocal minority, as they say, the best time to defend your freedom is while you still have it.

While Senators change their minds daily, and the media report that the filter will go ahead, or won't go ahead almost as regularly--the fact remains--this issue will not be put to bed unless Australians defend their democracy against the very ideology of censorship


First they came for Australian photographers and deemed their work "revolting" (Art Critic Kevin Rudd)
Now they come for the anti-abortionist lobbyists and deem their expression "prohibited" and BANNED
