They just approved the censorship law...(Now official)
I thought we could stop it, but it didn't matter, goverment corruption stood out in the end.
And just to add insult to injury, they think videogames have to be regularized, as well as any content regarding videogames, this may mean that my days at SMWC are numbered... EDIT: I deeply apologize for this false alarm, the law was approved in the congress, it still has to go through the chamber of deputies to be a real threat
EDIT2: It was now approved in the senate, internet freedom of speech in mexico it's in critical state
I might have to use tor or proxies eventually i think, and no, they don't have what the NSA has, and i hope they at least remain as incompetent as they are right now XD
But now they can cut down internet signal as they please.
There have been cases where they backed down when enough pressure was put on them, but it has to be Worldwide, and the rest of the world is watching the World cup(No offense for those who like to watch it).
Sadly, a protest on our own won't be enough, and to prove this:
A group of protesters manage to enter the congress, when they were discussing the approval of the "Televisa Law"(Or Mexican SOPA), and congressmen just called security to take them outside by force.
When the New Mexican President was elected, he seemed to be *really* big on Regulation, so I would think something like this might happen. Of course, I'm not totally familiar with how the Mexican Govt. Functions. Lets just hope that nothing bad comes of this...

Another robbery to Mexico: PRIAN (Portmaneau of "PRI" and "PAN") will approve
Televisa Law today; @CCQ_PRI miente (PRI_Lies)
By Victor Hernández
The PRI and PAN convened to session today at 11:00 AM in the senate to
approve the next robbery to the nation that represents the Televisa Law
The PRI as well as the PAN know that there's enormous rejection towards the
Televisa LaW. That's why PRI's national leader(?) César Camacho had to lie
openly about the Law, masking it as if it were a great benefit for mexicans when
in reality dooms Mexico to internet censorship and to giving more money to
Televisa by allowing it to keep operating as a monopoly
According to Camacho, the Televisa law it's "not a gift to television companies
and will bring benefits to consumers like not paying long distance calls and
promote competence(?) in telecommunications, so that consumers can recieve
better services paying less, amplifies coverage for users and impulses
our country's development"
Everything he said is false.
For Starters, the Televisa law it's a gift to television companies because it
allows them to not be declared predominant in television and it allows them to
acquire more television companies without informing IFT(Instituto Federal de
This means that the service of any television company that belongs to Televisa
won't have reasons to give a better service at lower price, since they won't
have competence and won't force Televisa to not behave like a monopoly
The long distance calls point it's just bullshitting us, since most of the
users never use it anyway
And the "promote competence to consumers" point, as we already established, it's
false, since with allow Televisa to keep operationg as a Monopoly and
therefore, will not lower prices or give better services.
The only way to give better services and prices would be declaring that
Televisa it's predominant in services. That way Televisa would be forced
to lower prices and allow competence.
But the PRI and PAN don't want to declare Televisa as predominant, which will
force consumers to keep paying high prices for a bad internet, television
and Phone service from televisa
Aside from that, the PRI wants to approve the Televisa law because it also
states that any authority can order the jamming of internet signals and
cellphones whenever they see fit, like protesters broadcasting what's going on
Meaning that besides robbing mexicans with high prices and a lousy service from
televisa, the PRI and PAN want to censor Mexicans.
In theory, the law can be rejected in the Supreme Court of Justice for violating
freedom of speech, as well as what's established in the constitution respecting
Services predominance. But if Enrique Peña Nieto bribes the Supreme Court
to "reject the rejections", the Televisa law will be approved and
mexicans will pay for that.
There's only a way to stop the Televisa Law and other laws that have only hurt
mexicans: not voting for the PRI or the PAN in 2015 and 2018. Only that
will be able to reverse al the crap that the PRIAN has forced unto the congress
and that has been contrary to mexican interests
If this passes, I will be using TOR for everything. This really sucks though, and I really hate to say this, but this will only bring Mexico one step closer to be a dictatorship.
This can still be stopped but people need to pay less attention to the world cup and more attention to what happens outside. I really hate how the government takes these chances abuse the people while they are distracted. Oh and I don't think we'll be getting outside help, the rest of the world doesn't really care about us (by this I mean the politicians, not the people).
Or maybe, even with approved law, i think there's still the chance of the goverment being incompetent enough to don't know about the existence of certain pages like SMWC, i really REALLY hope they're too incompetent.
Our government is anything but competent, especially since the presiden't can't say three words without saying something stupid. Regardless I wouldn't count on that, even if SMWC is unaffected, a lot of stuff will me, mostly on YouTube and social networks.
