Stop the Stop Online Piracy Act & Protect us from the PROTECT IP Act

Wikipedia is in a 24 hour blackout protesting the Stop Online Piracy Act and PROTECT IP Act
Imagine a World
Without Free Knowledge
For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia.
I have to admit I am very worried about this legislation, cause US politicians are, like any other politicians, idiots that don't even read the bills they vote for, nor would most of these have a clue what these two bills entail even if they did read it...
