The Day We Fight Back

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 - 0:00 to Wednesday, 12 February 2014 - 0:00

As you may have heard, Access, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Privacy International, the Center for Internet and Society India, and hundreds of other groups worldwde are building up for a major day of action on February 11th—The Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance (https://thedaywefightback.org). Bloggers, organizations, companies, and websites will be publicly demonstrating their opposition to unchecked Internet spying. A key part of the day’s campaign will be to encourage Internet users to join you as signatories of the 13 Principles.

We hope you can join us in making your own mark on the day, and joining our worldwide coalition.

As a coalition participant, there are seven actions you can take:

  1. Join the coalition: Point to the Day We Fight Back (DWFB) website from your own website. The DWFB site will allow people from around the world to sign onto our 13 Principles, demonstrating their opposition to mass surveillance by the NSA, GCHQ, and other intelligence agencies. If you and your colleagues sign up on the main website (https://thedaywefightback.org), you will receive information on the day’s events.

  2. Sign the Principles: Tell your friends to sign the 13 Principles! We will be revamping our global action center at http://en.necessaryandproportionate.org/take-action to align the message with the DWFB day of action. We’ll continue to use the Principles to show world leaders that privacy is a human right and should be protected regardless of frontiers.

  3. Send an email: If you need an excuse to contact your members or colleagues about this topic, February 11th is the perfect time to tell them to contact local politicians about Internet spying, encourage them to take their own actions, and understand the importance of fighting against mass surveillance.

  4. Social media: Tweet! Post on Facebook and Google Plus! We want to make as big of a splash as possible. We want this to be a truly global campaign, with every country involved. The more people are signing the Principles, the more world leaders will hear our demands to put a stop to mass spying at home and overseas.

  5. Tools: Develop memes, games, social media tools, educational materials, and infographics: whatever else you can to encourage others to participate.

  6. Be creative: plan your own actions and pledge. Take to the streets. Promote the Principles in your own country. Then, let us know what your plan is, so we can link and re-broadcast your efforts.

  7. Join the conversation in Reddit and tell your fellow friends your plans for Feb. 11. http://www.reddit.com/r/thedaywefightback/comments/1wbx05/the_day_we_fight_back_a_call_to_the_international

All 7 (or more!) would be great, but honestly the movement benefits from everything you do. Let us know your plans and actions by emailing rights@eff.org.

To stand a chance of stopping mass surveillance, we all—organizations, platforms, and individuals from around the world—need to mobilize as aggressively as Internet users have in the past, to fight against censorship. Let me know if you're interested in joining us.
