Back in 2007, I discovered about Net Neutrality and posted about it in this blog post. That was 7 years ago. Since then, we heard more and more about it in the news and finally arrived to today. Sadly, it’s as good as dead. The first hit is Netflix (oh Netflix, how I loved you before this, should I cancel my subscription now?). Read a good report about it here http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/02/23/comcasts-deal-with-netflix-makes-network-neutrality-obsolete/
In January 2012 we defeated the SOPA and PIPA censorship legislation with the largest Internet protest in history. Today we face another critical threat, one that again undermines the Internet and the notion that any of us live in a genuinely free society: mass surveillance.
In celebration of the win against SOPA and PIPA two years ago, and in memory of one of its leaders, Aaron Swartz, we are planning a day of protest against mass surveillance, to take place this February 11th.
Together we will push back against powers that seek to observe, collect, and analyze our every digital action. Together, we will make it clear that such behavior is not compatible with democratic governance. Together, if we persist, we will win this fight.
