For immediate release: August 15, 2014



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.

Wanna see the look on this Facebook employee’s face when we showed up? Check it out.

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.

Just last week, a class action lawsuit was filed against Facebook for criminal violations within its privacy policy. [2] In less than a week, more than 25,000 individuals have joined the Europe v. Facebook lawsuit. [3] If everyone who signed the petition opting out of Facebook’s creepy tracking system joins this lawsuit against them, we could force one of the most powerful companies on earth to listen to the public will. Wouldn’t that be a sweet victory? Let’s do it.

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.
