RU.Wikipedia is protesting changes to law

http://ru.wikipedia.org/

Представьте себе мир без свободных знаний
Сегодня, 10 июля, в Думе идут слушания о внесении поправок в Закон об информации, которые могут привести к созданию внесудебной цензуры всего интернета на русском языке, в том числе к закрытию доступа к Википедии на русском языке.
Сообщество Википедии протестует против введения цензуры, опасной для свободных знаний, открытых для всего человечества. Мы просим у вас поддержки в противодействии этому законопроекту.

Wikipedia in Russian will be closed on 10th of July because of Russian parliament’s debating of amendments to the law «About information» that could create real censorship of the internet — a blacklisting and filtering of internet sites.
Supporters of the law’s proposition say that it is aimed only at widely prohibited content such as child pornography and «information like this», but conditions for determining the content falls under this law will create a thing like the «great Chinese firewall». The existing Russian law’s practice shows the high possibility of the worst scenatio, in which access to Wikipedia soon will be closed in all country.
On July 10 will be held the second reading of the law in the State Duma. The law will come into force after the third reading, which date isn’t set yet.
