FacebookCover We use the internet to be ourselves but governments are building a prison around it we have to stop them, but how ? they seem so vast and powerful, but government spies have a weakness, they can hack anybody but they can’t have everybody. Folks like the NSA depend  on collecting insecure data from tapped fiber. They depend on our mistakes – mistakes we can fix. The Plan: Reset the Net. Together on June 5th, one year after snowden’s first NSA story, we all take one powerful step to turn off government spying and turn on freedom. the call is simple : Find some territory of the internet that you can protect from prying eyes. Seize and hold it.
