It's hard not to feel a bit powerless here, eh?

Maybe we need to form some kind of opposing body who'll make the same kind of noise about this Fairfax et al have, fronted by articulate, intelligent people who the mainstream media will take seriously. Obviously ITM will be covering this extensively and kicking up a stink wherever possible.

The petition thing is a start, but there's about ten million of them floating around already which makes it hard. Maybe I'll try to find the biggest/most coherently written one tomorrow and write a story pointing people towards it?
