Europe: Proposal aimed at banning ‘All Pornography In The Media’ & internet.
Yeah honey, good luck with that.
A report that will be voted on in the European Union parliament March 12 could lay the groundwork for laws banning pornography across all media — including the Internet — and could potentially restrict civil liberties, free speech advocates claim.
The “ report on eliminating gender stereotypes in the EU” contains a number of proposals for improving gender equality within EU members states, but squirrelled away in Article 17 is the call for “a ban on all forms of pornography in the media” — and it proposes “a charter to which all internet operators will be invited to adhere” as part of the framework for achieving that goal, leading activists to accuse the Parliament of seeking to police EU citizens’ web activity.
