Fight for our Future has launched a “Reset The Net Campaign” for June 5th, 2014.
The problem, as outlined at Reset the Net, is:
“The NSA is exploiting weak links in Internet security to spy on the entire world, twisting the Internet we love into something it was never meant to be: a panopticon.” It defines a solution as “We can’t stop targeted hacking, but we *can* stop mass surveillance, by building proven security into the everyday Internet.” ??Finally, the plan is to “First, get hundreds of sites & apps to add proven security (like SSL). Then on June 5, we’ll run a splash screen *everywhere* to spread NSA-resistant privacy tools.”
Shahid Buttar and Kevin Zeese examine the plan is this clip from Acronym TV (full episode here).
