Italy: Large protest against “gag” rule bill on local media

No Bavaglio” (No Gag) is a large protest movement in Italy against a proposed privacy law that would impose heavy fines on newspapers (and blogs) that publish transcripts of phone calls. The law is suspect, because wiretapping has played a key role in media investigations that have led to mafia arrests and political scandals. The mobilization is taking place on Liberarete.tv and Facebook group, among other online venues.
