February 11th: The Day We Fight Back
Tomorrow, A Small Orange will proudly join a broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms in “The Day We Fight Back”, worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA’s mass spying regime. We’ll be joining thousands of other sites in posting a banner at the footer of our site urging people to call and/or email Congress, to ask legislators to oppose the FISA Improvements Act, support the USA Freedom Act, and enact protections for non-Americans.
This event is being held in honor of the late activist/technologist Aaron Swartz,
and in celebration of the victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act in 2012– a proposed bill that Aaron helped to prevent from passing.
