I agree with an earlier comment that if any action is taken at all, it
should be educational for the unsuspecting visitor. Just changing the
background or even displaying a black site is really not useful at all,
if the reason is not given along with that.

Right, a bg change for symbolic blackout, and a news item.

Something like :

Today we symbolically black out our website to protest upcoming US bills named SOPA (...) and PROTECT-IP Act that would restrict freedom on the Internet, and have consequences on free software developers like us.
