APC has joined today's internet blackout to protest arbitrary and
unlawful interference with internet access that violates human rights.
Our site will be in blackout for 24 hours from 1200 UTC Wednesday 18
January. We believe it is vital for people to articulate threats to
human rights and freedoms from laws such as the proposed Stop Online
Piracy Act and Protect Intellectual Property Act that is going before
the United States Congress.

APC se une a la campa?a de protesta internacional contra la
interferencia il?cita y arbitraria con el acceso a internet que viola
los derechos y las libertades en internet. Nuestro sitio web
(http://www.apc.org) estar? fuera de l?nea por 24 horas desde las 1200
UTC del mi?rcoles 18 de enero. Creemos que es vital contrarrestar  las
amenazas a los derechos humanos y las libertades que presentan leyes
como SOPA y PIPA.
