One side wants control, so they can profit from and watch everything you say and do online. They want to sell you stuff, but also want to use your data for job applications, insurance, and law enforcement. Along the way, they want you to feel empowered and entertained by the process of turning your life into a stream of commodified information.
The other side wants digital autonomy, and fights against the surveillance state, the internet monopolies, and the data profiteers. Some of these battles happen in the courtroom, others in the world of politics.
Then there is what Riseup does: we wage direct, on-the-ground resistance by creating and using technologies embedded with freedom and self-determination.
All of you, by using Riseup, are part of the resistance that stands up and says no to spying and profiteering. We believe, with all our hearts, that if there are not more secure and private ways to communicate, and if there are not people who actively use and support the creation of these technologies, then our right to communicate freely online will disappear.
Since we don’t profit off you, we depend on your donations for our continued existence and our ability to build the infrastructures that make another world possible. Time and again, many of you have raised your hand and said this means something to me, I’ll pitch in whatever I can to keep Riseup going. Thank you, thank you a million times over. We are still here only because of you.
Please, do whatever you can, it doesn’t matter how much. This year we also have a raffle with some fabulous prizes! Everyone who donates will be entered.
