YouTube right now! Poland protests ACTA
People in Poland take to the street to protest the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, a piece of legislation similar to the Stop Online Piracy Act, SOPA.
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
As a good portion of America breathes a sigh of relief over Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) failing becoming a reality, the rest of the world gears up to protest the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a piece of legislation critics say mirrors SOPA, but on a global scale.
On Tuesday, the people of Poland took to protesting ACTA, both online with several sites going dark (much like in the United States during the SOPA protests), and in person.
Footage of a protest that took place on Jan. 25, was uploaded onto YouTube a few hours ago. It features thousands of people holding up signs, their chants echoing in the 13th century Main Market Square in Kraków.
The minute-long video, taken at night, is as chilling as it is inspiring.
According to a Reddit thread linking to the video, 15,000 were protesting in that square, though those numbers have not been verified by media outlets, just “thousands.”
“We need to do the same all over the world” wrote kondichael on Reddit.
Views are currently frozen at 301 views, a YouTube bug indicating high enough traffic to the video that the site’s servers cannot keep up.
