European Digital Rights’ existence is at stake. Our main funding projects all end in 2015. In December 2014, we launched a campaign asking help to ensure we can continue our work to transform Europe into a free and open society, where your civil rights and freedoms are reliably guaranteed. Now, the last days of the campaign are here, and there is still work to be done to reach our goal.
The campaign: https://edri.org/campaign/support-digital-rights-europe/
In the past five years, EDRi has evolved from being a decentralised alliance with no staff to an influential organisation with a Brussels office and professional staff. Since it opened its office in Brussels in 2009, EDRi has become a strong voice for freedoms in the digital environment. It is often the first contact point for policy makers in the EU institutions on digital rights matters.
Imagine what the world would look like if EDRi didn’t exist! Would we have ACTA, EU-wide mandatory web blocking, a non-neutral Internet and more widespread censorship? EDRi is asking for support in order to be able to fund one advocate who will fight to keep private information private, to fight against surveillance and censorship measures.
