So, what are we about? 23 orgas, over 13.000 people and counting.
We're simply worried about the massive deployment of biometric surveillance tech such as facial recognition cams. It's secretive, it's unlawful, it's inhumane.
We are calling for a BAN on biometric mass surveillance. In February 2021 we are launching an ECI (European Citizen Initiative) aimed at the European Commission.

REMINDER: no matter what you think about #Assange as a person (hint: check your sources), no matter what you feel you like or dislike about him or his persona..
The case of the US Vs. WikiLeaks ("conspiracy for espionnage" to publish docs) concerns ALL who -even remotely- participated in WikiLeaks + ALL who will ever consider doing anything similar to WikiLeaks. YES, they are after YOU too!
You think you're not part of that "conspiracy"? Maybe you've not been trying hard enough..
**WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denied bail by UK court**
"Assange will continue to be held in London’s maximum-security Belmarsh prison pending his US extradition case."

They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)

"Earlier this year, Google quietly published a “Device Lock Controller” app to the Play Store. It’s a way for credit providers to curtail the functionality of a phone that’s being financed if payments are missed."

"The pandemic has exposed how Amazon places profits ahead of workers, society, and our planet. Amazon takes too much and gives back too little."
It is time to Make Amazon Pay.
