Yesterday morning, two of us from Fight for the Future hand delivered our petition demanding that Facebook end its abusive practice of tracking web users even when they’re not on Facebook, and conducting psychological tests on users’ emotions. We walked in through the front door and dropped off a box including your signature and more than 135,000 others.
But delivering these signatures are just the beginning. Our campaign helped generate massive attention on Facebook’s invasive policies, and now they’re in a whole new heap of trouble.
No matter what happens next with Facebook, we’ll be continuing our work day and night to end both corporate and government surveillance and rally the Internet to defend freedom of expression and privacy. We’d like to keep you informed about these efforts, but if you ever want to unsubscribe, no worries! You can do so easily using the link at the bottom of all our emails.
For a free and open Internet,
Kevin, Jeff, Evan, Tiffiniy, and Holmes
