We are subject to surveillance by the state and by the corporations closely aligned with the preservation of state interests. We are concerned not only for how this profoundly threatens individual liberty, but the liberty of the collective, especially when millions of Americans, and others around the world, are marginalized by state- and corporate-sanctioned poverty, racism, sexism, and more.
Through our resources and workshops we hope to empower individuals and communities to resist surveillance and the increasing state and corporate weaponization of digital technologies that are intended to extract capital, maintain the violent status-quo, and ensure a future for those who hold power. We do this work with a recognition of the necessity of privacy in computing and free (as in speech) software.
We maintain a Digital Privacy Guide geared toward activist organizing.
