One local Indymedia did as the police ask, the other refused. This led to some interesting debate.
But, what is exactly the landscape in which this censorship takes place in France ? What is the legal framework ? What are the websites already blocked ? What are the technical measures put in place by ISPs ? Which ISPs are concerned. I can answer these questions, describe how this works, how we have been and are still fighting against this censorship, at many level, including the legal, technical and ISP ones.
This can as much be a talk about what's going on in France (that I know), as a more broad discussion about what's going on in Europe (that I'd love to know). Thk would be the ideal place to share knowledge on this matter, document it, and why not organize collectively afterwards.
