So this has been a bleak year for internet freedom. ACTA, SOPA, PIPA, and in Canada Bill C30. Everyone’s angry, but what are we doing about it? Sharing links on facebook? Signing petitions. It is clearly not enough. It’s barely anything. Meanwhile, the oposition is pouring tanks of money onto the battle. They can afford to do so because they are rich, rich off us no less. But we have the advantage of vastly out numbering them. So let’s do something to actually be heard. We have agents of our own, and if we can help them, we should. So to that end I’ve donated to the following:
- The Electronic Frontier Foundation: To help fight against SOPA and PIPA and what comes next in the States, because it’s effects will be felt up here too.
- Open Media .ca: A Canadian organization supporting a free internet. Today they are even having a donate and be matched by Acanac drive, so what ever you donate will count double!
- Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic: On advice from a lawyer friend who interned there I also sent some money their way.
All in all I may not have lots, but I have some to spare, and you may have even less, but if you can spare even $10, spend a bit to help fight for our free internet.
