(TheDayWeFightBack.org) – February 8, 2014 – In Washington D.C. steam is brewing. Activists are preparing for what could go down in history as the biggest day in campaigning against Domestic Spying. For years, alternative news outlets have been preaching about “big brother’s continuous grasp of corporate power and its agenda” but we’ve never seen anything like this since SOPA. We think its all been triggered by NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden who will go down in history as a true patriot for his country.
“A broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms will hold a worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA’s mass spying regime on February 11th. Dubbed “The Day We Fight Back”, the day of activism was announced on the eve of the anniversary of the tragic passing of activist and technologist Aaron Swartz. The protest is both in his honor and in celebration of the victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act two years ago this month, which he helped spur.
Participants including Access, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, BoingBoing, Reddit, Mozilla, ThoughtWorks [Eternal Affairs Media], and more to come, will join potentially millions of Internet users to pressure lawmakers to end mass surveillance — of both Americans and the citizens of the whole world.”
