Fight back: Take part TODAY!

Today -- Tuesday, February 11th -- thousands of websites and groups are protesting online as part of The Day We Fight Back against mass surveillance.

Since June, ongoing revelations about the NSA's activities have shown us the expanding scope of government surveillance. Today is the day. People around the world are demanding an end to mass spying. Click here to take part.

A broad coalition of organizations, companies, and individuals are loudly voicing their stance against unwarranted mass spying—over 6,000 websites have joined together today to demand reform. Countless users—represented by groups like EFF, Demand Progress, ACLU, PEN, and Access, as well as companies like Google, Twitter, Mozilla, and reddit—demand reform to governmental collection of innocent users' information.

Over the past few years, we've seen the Internet as a political force make waves in Washington. From our defeat of the Internet censorship bill SOPA to our battles over CISPA, and the TPP, history has shown that we can activate our networks to beat back legislation that threatens our ability to connect, as well as champion bills that will further our rights online.

Click here to join today's effort by placing a call, sending an email, or signing a petition -- it'll just take a minute or two.

We can win this. We can stop mass spying. With public opinion polls on our side, unprecedented pressure from presidential panels and oversight boards, and millions of people speaking out around the world, we've got a chance now to change surveillance policy for good.

Last year, we were presented with a new opportunity—an opportunity in the form of leaks that showed us the truth about deeply invasive surveillance programs around the world. This is the year we make good on that opportunity. Let's ensure that sacrifices made by whistleblowers and risks taken by brave journalists were not done in vain.

Join us in fighting back. Click here to make a call, send an email, or sign a petition to key decision-makers.

If we keep fighting, we will win.

Thank you for this post!! Is there any way I can "share" it on my DW blog (with your permission, of course)? I'd like to spread the message - this is a global problem after all - but I am a DW noob.

(Completely off topic, but I have to say it: your icon is EPIC.)
