The Mass Mesh Net folks have come down from their euphoria at what a success the Freedom Rally network was.  Pirate Will, Stephen and Pirate Peter put in so much time to keep the network humming along and tell people about what MassMesh and the Pirate Party are doing.  Thanks to Molly from the FSF for coming by with some Day Against DRM flyers. Mass Mesh didn't log regular network statistics (that is something they plan to improve on), but it looks like they had hundreds of people use the net...

Any time you can give would be appreciated. Freedom Rally is an important event f...

Thank you for reaching out to your family and friends to try to stop these bills from becoming law. The copyright censors won this battle and, based on a very recent proposal by the European Commission to require that web sites monitor ...

It is crunch time in the fight for free speech and against censorship.  In two days, on the 12th, the European Parliament will vote whether to impose copyright upload filters, which are censorship machines and a tax on links. If these bills pass, the damage to freedom of speech in the EU (and potentially elsewhere) will be immense. There are two ways we can help our fellow pirates in the EU: Please tell any family, friends or co-workers who live in the EU about this bill and urge them to...
