New evidence raises even greater suspicion about flood of fraudulent anti-net neutrality comments. Numerous individuals have confirmed that personal information was used to file comments without their permission, data analysis shows likely connection to stolen databases.
Today, the FCC voted to move ahead with its plan to slash net neutrality protections, despite overwhelming public outcry and growing evidence of serious fraud by net neutrality opponents.
Fight for the Future is calling on Internet users, the FCC, and state Attorneys General

Open Letter: We Demand That Julian Assange’s Rights Be Restored
With deep pride in the rights we hold so dear, we are calling on those who share our love of liberty to respectfully ask the Ecuadorian government to give Julian Assange back his voice. We are also asking that the United States end the Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks and drop any charges against the publisher and all other staff members.
The First Continental Congress wrote that the freedom of press was important not only for the advancement of truth, but so that those who seek to abuse power “are shamed or intimidated into more honourable and just modes of conducting affairs.” They asserted that without this right, “a people cannot be free and happy.”
Canadian SOPA 2018a group of media company's calling themselves “FairPlay Canada” are currently trying to push a bill into law that is effectively a version of the failed US "Stop Online Piracy Act" (better known as SOPA) Bill that sent the internet into a frenzy prompting sevrol websites to blackout in protest back in 2011
To those who live in the USA and feel that this dos'nt apply to you / that you shouldn't care it's worth pointing out that if this passes in Canada it's EXTREMELY likely to make it's way over to the USA thew ether a trade agreement that coses the US to adopt the Net Censorship law, or for corrupt polotisons / major corperasons to lobby for a simaler law to be passed in the US using the Canada as an excuse/ justification for the bill,
It's also worth pointing out that meany of the people currently helping to defend the US's Net Neutrality laws currently under attack by the FCC live in Canada (Ex. myself)

Al-Nakba: The Palestinian CatastropheAl-Nakba: The Palestinian Catastrophe, Episode 1
"The Nakba did not begin in 1948. Its origins lie over two centuries ago…."
So begins this four-part series on the 'nakba', meaning the 'catastrophe', about the history of the Palestinian exodus that led to the first
Arab-Israeli war in 1948, and the establishment of the state of Israel.
This sweeping history starts back in 1799 with Napoleon's attempted advance into Palestine to check British expansion and his appeal to
the Jews of the world to reclaim their land in league with France.
The narrative moves through the 19th century and into the 20th century with the British Mandate in Palestine and comes right up to date
in the 21st century and the ongoing 'nakba' on the ground.
Arab, Israeli and Western intellectuals, historians and eye-witnesses provide the central narrative which is accompanied by archive
material and documents, many only recently released for the first time.
From the same folks that brought us SOPA, TPP!Re-Blogged from: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/112882503303/from-the-same-folks-that-brought-us-sopa
Alarm bells are ringing. We just got word from our allies in DC that U.S. Congress is getting ever closer to cutting a deal to secretively “Fast Track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP), a massive trade deal where decisions that affect the global future of the Internet are made behind closed doors. 
We need to act swiftly and strike hard. Will you call Senator Ron Wyden right now and tell him: “Please don’t betray the Internet! No Fast Track for the TPP”

Final text of TPP's IP Ch. leaked! (it's not good)A copy/paste of fightforthefuture's public statement on the matter:
Digital rights group Fight for the Future calls for Congress to Defund the corrupt U.S Trade Representative (USTR) in response to leaked text
This morning, Wikileaks released the final negotiated text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “Intellectual Property” chapter, confirming advocates warnings that the deal contains extreme copyright provisions and monopoly protections for large pharmaceutical companies that threaten online freedom of speech and affordable access to medicine.
Fight for the Future, a leading digital rights group that has opposed the TPP due to its utter lack of transparency and potential to lead to widespread Internet censorship, issued the following statement, which can be attributed to campaign director Evan Greer:

Tech experts from every major advocacy group working to defend Internet users’ rights vehemently oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, but a trade association that represents major web companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Uber just endorsed it. The TPP was negotiated in complete secrecy by government bureaucrats and corporate lobbyists from industries that hate the Internet–– including the ones that wrote terrible censorship bills like SOPA .
