Activists, companies, and organizations set to battle mass surveillance with day of action.

A large coalition of activists, organizations, and online companies will be coordinating an online day of activism to oppose worldwide spying of citizens.

The event was announced ahead of the tragic death of activist Aaron Swartz, and the event is both in his honor, and to celebrate the victory of defeating the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) legislation.

On February 11, 2014 participants such as Access, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, BoingBoing, Reddit, Mozilla, ThoughtWorks, and potentially much more, will join together with activists to demand the end of mass surveillance on Americans, and men and woman of the world.

On the day of the action, the coalition of companies and activists it represents will make calls and drive emails to lawmakers. Owners of websites will install banners to encourage their visitors to fight back against surveillance, and employees of technology companies will demand that their organizations to do the same. People are also encouraged to design memes, and change their profile pictures to respective banners/pictures that will help spread the message.

Websites and Internet users who want to talk part can visit The Day We Fight Back website to sign up for email updates and to register websites to participate. Regular updates will be posted to the site between now and the February 11th day of action.

    It’s my sense that in the US at least, a useful form of protest is to use the “automatic signature” feature on your email….perhaps add a Confidentiality Notice like this:

    Confidentiality Notice: The USA has alledgedly invested itself into unconstitutional, worldwide surveillance of all electronic communications including this communication and all future phone calls and electronic communications: http://tinyurl.com/kbzfve7 You should assume there is no longer any communication privacy whatsoever or Secure Internet Lines as a result of the “Snowden Event” unless and until we lay-to-rest the thinking and mindset of the old New World Order and reach new levels of trust and cooperation.
