Irish internet users are being encouraged to unplug themselves from the internet in support of IrelandOffline's Blackout day.
The pressure group, which campaigns for unmetered and broadband internet access in Ireland, is hoping to cause a stir on 16 November, when it hopes its planned Internet Blackout will be supported across the Emerald Isle.
If successful, the protest will see the country's communication networks come to a standstill as participants unplug computers and telephones in an act of unity planned to lead to cheaper internet access.
The group's gunpowder plot-like tone was outlined in its angry address to the nation: "The only person who can really make a change, the only person who can really fix this problem is you, the Irish citizen and internet user.
"Politicians for the most part don't understand the problem. We need to educate them. The telecommunications companies are happy with the status quo. We need to register our distaste with them.
Our organisation, IrelandOffline, is working hard to do that, but we need your help to demonstrate that the time has come for change. And that's why we came up with, The Blackout."
