Whether deliberate or not, the fact that a foreign country's blacklist  
is blacklisted in Australia should be some indication as to how much  
more than "kiddie porn" is on Steven Conroy's agenda.

An anti-abortion site is on the blacklist because of the pictures of  
things that are claimed to be aborted foetuses. That's not kiddie porn  
by any stretch of the imagination.

There's an anti-censorship protest on this Saturday, 1pm at Parliament
