The Day We Fight Back

Today, we, the citizens of the Open Web, fight back against the NSA and mass surveillance. We stand in solidarity against spying and unlawful, unconstitutional use of technology to gather as much data as possible from innocent individuals, both here in the United States and abroad.

It’s always important to call your representatives when you have an issue so that they know how their constituency wants them to vote in Congress. Today it is incredibly important that we do this. We need them to know that we are not okay with our government operating in secret. We need them to know that we don’t want to live in an Orwellian state that spies on its own citizens and collects and analyzes data on innocent people around the world.

We aren’t revolutionaries here. Technology has made it so that we can peacefully organize and assemble without being hurt or arrested. We need to keep this amazing environment, the Open Web, safe from abuse and in the hands of the people. It is the most powerful tool for democracy humanity has ever had. It also has the most potential for oppression if used improperly as the government and some major corporations have done.

The SOPA/PIPA blackouts in 2012 were a massive success, and The Day We Fight Back will be too.
