Definition Edit

A virtual blockade is

the cyberspace version of a physical sit-in or blockade. The goal in both cases is to call attention to the protestors and their cause by disrupting normal operations and blocking access to facilities. With a sit-in, thousands of activists simultaneously visit a web site and attempt to generate so much traffic against the site that other users cannot reach it.[1]
