In support of The Day We Fight Back against mass surveillance (thedaywefightback.org) BlackVPN announces that they will begin donating 10% of every VPN Privacy Package purchase directly to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).
Beginning on February 11, 2014 and continuing indefinitely, everyone who purchases a blackVPN Privacy Package is donating to the EFF and helping in the fight for digital rights.
“Nobody does more lasting good for the Internet with less [than the EFF].” according to Cory Doctorow. “Every penny you donate makes change for the better.”
BlackVPN joins the thousands of groups supporting the day of Web protest including: Amnesty International, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, Mozilla, Reddit and Tumblr.
“We aren’t going to let the NSA and its allies ruin the Internet,” said Katitza Rodriguez from the EFF in a recent call to the international community to fight against mass surveillance. “Inspired by the memory of Aaron Swartz, fuelled by our victory against SOPA and ACTA, the global digital rights community are uniting to fight back.”
