I agree with the message and the goal but why is this an open letter rather than just an email to PG? Rather, the subject seems confused. It could be they're trying to reach all the HN users, but when they write "You blacked out your websites, lobbied your employers to do the same, and started creative campaigns to defeat a threat to freedom on the Internet" that seems directed at the people who run HN.

I think they're talking about the readers of HN, many of whom are workers in tech and represent many more websites than just HN. HN blacking out would do relatively little to affect public opinion, all of the websites represented by HN users would do much more.
