Our Mission

We intend to provide access and education to ensure a secure, uncensored Internet for everyone until such time as the ISPs and Government abandon warrantless mass surveillance.

Education

Working with local HackSpaces and other community groups we hope to provide material and even classes on how to securely browse and communicate over the Internet

Non Profit

We are a registered non-profit entity that cannot distribute profits to its members / directors and has no shareholders. All our money goes towards our stated goals.

Free & Open Source Software

We only use Free and Open Source Software and will publish any internal tooling under a BSD license on GitHub

Help Locally, Help Globally

Our primary focus is helping innocent people who want to communicate privately and browse the Internet without being tracked, profiled and surveilled despite the UK Governments Mass Surveillance plans. Because of the global nature of the Internet our resources are available to everyone.

Email Self Defence

Bulk surveillance violates our fundamental rights and makes free speech risky. This guide will teach you a basic surveillance self-defense skill: email encryption.

Defend Yourself

Choose the right ISP

A&A provide a real internet connection with their internet/broadband/mobile services. A real internet connection, such that IP packets from you get to where they should do, and IP packets to you get to you. There is no messing about.

Join the Open Rights Group

We want a society built on laws, free from disproportionate, unaccountable surveillance and censorship. We want a society in which information flows more freely. We want a state that is transparent and accountable, where the public's rights are acknowledged and upheld.

Use Free Software

Free software is about having control over the technology we use in our homes, schools and businesses, where computers work for our individual and communal benefit, not for proprietary software companies or governments who might seek to restrict and monitor us.

Spread the Word

There's strength in numbers; the more of us who choose to use petition our MPs, to use cryptographic communications and to use Tor will help prevent the state pursuing mass surveillance as it'll increase the burden and cost/benefit ratio.
