The Day We Fight Back

Received via email: 

Dear Internet Defense League member,

 

Cat Signal! Feb 11 we fight back against NSA spying.

 

Two years ago Internet users rose up and won the fight against SOPA and PIPA. One year ago, internet activist Aaron Swartz, who was a leader in these protests, tragically took his own life. In celebration of our huge win against SOPA and in memory of Aaron, we are helping coordinate a mass day of protest against mass surveillance to take place on February 11th.

 

It’s called The Day We Fight Back. This Tuesday, more than 4,000 websites will host banners urging people to call/email Congress to oppose mass government surveillance. Since the day Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA’s cynical abuse of the Internet we’ve been building a mass movement of Internet users to meet government surveillance head on. On Tuesday, the Internet will show its power to defend itself from threats once again.

 

If you’ve already got the Internet Defense League’s “all campaigns” code installed, you’re all set! The “cat signal” will be raised at midnight on Feb 11th.

 

Will you join? Click here to get the IDL code for your site.

 

We’ll demand that legislators

1) Pass the USA FREEDOM Act, which would move us in the right direction and restrict some of the spying.

2) Defeat the so-called “FISA Improvements Act”, which would entrench — and potentially expand — NSA spying.

3) Create additional privacy protections to protect the human rights of those outside the U.S.

4) End the NSA’s subversion of encryption and other data security measures.

 

Click here to stand up with thousands of other websites on The Day We Fight Back.

 

If you don’t have a website, you can still tell the world you’re taking on the NSA. Post on social media, make and share a meme, link to a NSA-related story, or organize a protest. Anything you can do helps, and if you tell us about it by replying to this email, we’ll help spread the word.

 

For years, the NSA has exploited secret legal interpretations to undermine our privacy rights — thus chilling speech and activism, and thereby threatening to subvert the very underpinnings of our democracy itself.

 

Now the time has come to once again fight back against mass surveillance. Are you in? Click here to get the code for your site.

 

Stay tuned after The Day We Fight Back — we’ve got the groundwork laid for another massive effort that will keep the pressure on and throw a wrench in the NSA’s plans like never before.

 

If you just want to get the code for The Day We Fight back, and not the IDL all-campaigns code, get it here.

 

For the Internet,

P.S. If you are part of the IDL’s twitter army (meaning you signed up with your twitter handle when you joined IDL, and authorized us to tweet out at key moments) we’ll be activating the twitter tool for this too to amplify the Cat Signal, so expect to see a tweet on Feb 11th! If you want to opt-out, just go to your twitter settings.

    Every bit of protest sends a message. Look at how the Republicants have backed off on “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” I’ll send this link to three or four bloggers I know and try to get the word out.

  2. The NSA is building a database of everyone’s electronic conversations, including those of members of congress, journalists, investigators, ambassadors, foreign leaders, political activists, NGOs, CEOs, — and their families and close friends — and others they want leverage over, to become the most influential power broker that history has ever seen.
    Does anybody here understand what the NSA can and will do with such information about the world’s most influential people?

    And what do we do to protest?

    Put a banner on our websites.

    You guys gotta be kidding.

    • And what’s Timmy going to do about it? In between video games he’s busy surfing the Internet, wasting his time leaving comments, which he doesn’t realize does even less to fight NSA spying, than putting a banner on a website does.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
