Petition To Preemptively Pardon Ed Snowden Reaches Goal Of 100k Signatures

22 June 2013 — Falkvinge on Infopolicy

The Whitehouse petition to pre-emptively pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden for “crimes he may have committed while blowing the whistle” has reached its goal of 100,000 signatures.

We Are All Aaron Swartz! Fighting Back Against the “Intellectual Property” Racket By Tony Cartalucci

14 January 2013 — Land Destroyer

Aaron Swartz’ passing becomes even more tragic if we do not recognize what he spent his life fighting for, and realize that no matter where we think we stand on the issue of Internet freedom, the interests driving the debate from Wall Street and Washington, do not have any of our best interests in mind.
