Singapore – Several sociopolitical websites and bloggers will hold a protest both online and offline this week against the new licensing scheme that came into effect yesterday.

The group of netizens – which calls itself Free My Internet – circulated a statement online yesterday calling for people to join them at a rally at Speakers’ Corner this Saturday, as well as for netizens to shut down their blogs and websites for 24 hours this Thursday.

The statement had 34 signatories, including the editors of sites such as The Online Citizen, TR Emeritus and Public House; prominent bloggers and Mr Gilbert Goh, the man who organised the recent protests at Hong Lim Park against the White Paper on Population.

Earlier last week, the Media Development Authority (MDA) introduced a new licensing framework for news websites.
