Mass Pirates Endorse Statement of Solidarity Against Online Harassment

Earlier this year, a member of the Tor project was subject to online harassment. The Tor project responded with a statement of Solidarity Against Online Harassment, which the Massachusetts Pirate Party is proud to endorse.

The internet can be a wonderful place, where people are free to exchange information and ideas. It can also be a dreary place where every sociopath is your next door neighbor. Harassment shouldn’t be tolerated in physical spaces, and it shouldn’t be tolerated in digital spaces either.

We agree with the Tor folks: statements like these are just the beginning of a conversation. We condone neither harassment nor discrimination, and we encourage ideas about how to make all spaces more civil and welcoming.
