We are not calling for a riot or a ddos or a ‘hax’! Quite the opposite actually. Anonymous is calling for all Americans who read this to visit the site below and contribute their opinions. Please be respectful, articulate yourself and be informative. One Anon put it perfectly when they said “” Just ask yourself one simple question, do American politicians really Congress to pass legislation giving them more powers to spy on citizens?
The link above ^^^^ is a direct link to an online petition sponsored by the White House itself. The purpose of this “petition” is to gather information to make an informed decision. How do the people feel about this issue? The petition tells you: “share your thoughts on strong encryption”
The people sponsoring this online petition want us (the people) to:
“Publicly affirm your support for strong encryption.Reject any law, policy, or mandate that would undermine our security. The government should not erode the security of our devices or applications, pressure companies to keep and allow government access to our data, mandate implementation of vulnerabilities or backdoors into products, or have disproportionate access to the keys to private data.
We demand privacy, security, and integrity for our communications and systems. As a public, we should be confident that the services we use haven’t been weakened or compromised by government mandate or pressure. No legislation, executive order, or private agreement with the government should undermine our rights.
Weakening encryption weakens the entire Internet. Please endorse strong encryption, and encourage other world leaders to do the same.”
Why is this issue important and why should you care?…..
What you might not have read in the news recently: http://thehackernews.com/2015/12/fbi-end-to-end-encryption.html
…… As you can now see by the FBI interest and the subsequent White House petition this is becoming a large issue in American society.
Remember that people who wrote & continue to write these laws grew up thinking like this….
.society has evolved and will continue to evolve. If you believe the government does not need any more power to spy on citizens then you need to sing this petition. Together we can make a difference. The online petition has already been signed by over 100,000 people. What numbers can Anonymous help them produce?
