The pledge will be tied into the WePromise 10 point charter.

      "They who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety" - Benjamin Franklin. Have a look at the Don't Spy On Us campaign backed by the ORG, to see the principles that we stand for - including transparency of law and democratic oversight, something completely lacking in the extensive surveillance measures by the state: https://www.dontspyonu...­

    I regret that I can not make it on this Monday. Monday's are a 50/50 chance of me ever attending a meeting due to other commitments. Hope it goes well though. I'll support in the usual social sharing ways ;o)
