One of my friends who’s a lawyer shared this article on Facebook: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/may/11/rakem-balogun-interview-black-identity-extremists-fbi-surveillance
It seems to me this is an example of someone clearly not dangerous, being targeted by surveillance and unjust charges which could be prevented if activists were using something like SAFE.
Whether or not we all agree about specific causes being just or unjust, I think we all believe in freedom of speech. Details of the specific incident aside, what I’m interested in is building the ties to social justice/activist communities that could eventually make that protection a reality.
I want to join the discussion on how we can start doing that, especially right now when all we have is the Testnet that’s not easily accessible and doesn’t yet guarantee security. Does anyone have successful/unsuccessful examples of reaching out to activists either IRL or online, and trying to spread the word? If not, what might that look like right now? What might that look like in future phases of the SAFENet’s development?
