Bad news for the European branches of the decentralized web. Not only did and the pass EU Parliament, the Commission introduced new anti-terrorist proposals that would need you to be available 24/7 to police your network for "terrorist content".

it's a wonder
that I wander
with a stranger
on the bank

where the quicksand
is so thick and
whisks a portion
of my life

amidst the squirming
I am learning
and confirming
fears I've held

and letting go
I finally know
I was afraid
of just myself

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of , the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against to protect the future of the internet!
