As you may have seen, Riseup is having our annual fundraising drive (help.riseup.net/donate). Riseup.net provides free and secure internet communication tools to tens of thousands of activist organizations and individuals across the world. The need for this has become painfully obvious this last year, what with all the damn spying. As we see it, the need and right for organizations to have privacy is pivotal for thriving social movements.
So… if you could kick down any money to Riseup in order to keep our servers, services, and collective going, that would be huge.
Riseup works tirelessly to create grassroots technology alternatives that address the communication needs of people and organizations working for social change. When you get a service from a corporation that doesn’t charge you, chances are that the money comes from extensive surveillance. Riseup, on the other hand, relies on donations by users like you who believe in supporting democratic alternatives.
