You have until midnight tonight to tell the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) not to destroy net neutrality and the open Internet. The current FCC wants to give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees.

Freedom Rally is September 15-17, and we will have a table there. This is an important event for civil liberties, and for ending the war on drugs.  It’s also really festive, and a great opportunity for outreach. We are changing how we approach Freedom Rally and our space will be used as an outdoor cryptoparty. We are looking for volunteers, particularly for pirates willing to show people how to protect their privacy on-line. We plan to have power and a network. The hours are noon to 8pm on...

The videos of white supremacist marchers attacking protesters who engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience or beat innocent protesters are horrible and show how bankrupt their ideas are. James Alex Fields Jr.'s car attack on peaceful protesters which resulted in the death of Heather Heyer and the injury of over 19 others is particularly appalling. We stand with those who oppose white supremacy. Pirate...
