We have launched our Don't Spy on Us campaign to stop mass surveillance, along with a coalition of civil liberties organisations: ARTICLE19 (http://www.article19.org/), Big Brother Watch (http://www.bigbrotherwatch.org.uk/), English PEN (http://www.englishpen.org/), Liberty (http://www.liberty-human-rights.org.uk/), Open Rights Group (http://www.openrightsgroup.org/), Privacy International (https://www.privacyinternational.org/).

You can take part in the campaign right now!

As part of the Day We Fight Back we're running a Crypto Party at the Free Word centre to show you how to improve your online security and privacy.

There'll be short talks, opportunities to take action, learn about encryption, secure your communications and ask questions to the experts on GCHQ practices.

At the same time international actions (https://thedaywefightback.org) against mass surveillance will be taking place, as the web stands up for the right to privacy.

The evening is hosted by English PEN (http://www.englishpen.org).
