TAILS OS

The amnestic incognito live system for privacy and anonymity.

Tails is free because nobody should have to pay to be safe while using computers.
Tails is used more than 25 000 times every day:

* Journalists and whistleblowers use Tails to denounce the wrongdoings of governments and corporations.
* Activists use Tails to avoid surveillance and organize their struggles for liberatory social change.
* Human-rights defenders use Tails to avoid censorship and report human-rights violations.
* Domestic violence survivors use Tails to escape surveillance in their homes.
* Privacy-concerned citizens use Tails to avoid online tracking.

But, not everyone using Tails can donate. When you donate, you are offering to many others who need it, the very precious tool that is Tails.

Donations from individuals like you are our most valuable source of funding as they make Tails more independent from government and corporate funding. We are a very small non-profit and our yearly budget is ridiculously small compared to the value of Tails.

Donate today to protect and sustain Tails!

BG IRC NETWORK

We are a group of enthusiasts who have been involved, in one way or the other, with the IRC technology over the years; a group of people who over the years managed to maintain their server and webchat users. On the basis of our experience, which we have gained so far, in 2017, we created the largest IRC network in Bulgaria – the BGIRC Network. To date, the registered nicknames on the network are about 500, the registered channels are just over 200, and there are more than 800 regular users during peak hours – all of this was built on 5 servers. The idea behind the creation of the network was to connect people from all over the world, and to create a “safe space”, where they can spend their free time, talk to friends, meet new people and just enjoy themselves without worrying that they are being tracked in any way. We guarantee the anonymity of all the people who visit our servers. We have strict personal data confidentiality rules, which all of our users know and respect. In time, the network took on a life of its own and many new channels came to be created, where people share their professional or personal experience and stories with the freedom of anonymity. Currently, there are specialized channels for programmers, for gamers, for linux experts and others. The network, its servers, systems and maintenance are all financed out-of-pocket by the creators and administrators, with no outside investors. But in order to continue to maintain all that we have built so far and to be able to improve our systems, we need to increase our budget with some outside help – with your help! Thank you to everyone who decides to support our cause and you are always welcome to BGIRC Network to have a chat!

THE COURAGE FOUNDATION

Who Is Edward Snowden?
Edward Snowden is a 31 year old US citizen, former Intelligence Community officer and whistleblower. The documents he revealed provided a vital public window into the NSA and its international intelligence partners’ secret mass surveillance programs and capabilities. These revelations generated unprecedented attention around the world on privacy intrusions and digital security, leading to a global debate on the issue.

Snowden worked in various roles within the US Intelligence Community, including serving undercover for the CIA overseas. He most recently worked as an infrastructure analyst at the NSA, through a Booz Allen Hamilton contract, when he left his home and family in Hawaii to blow the whistle in May 2013. After travelling to Hong Kong, Snowden revealed documents to the American public on the NSA’s mass surveillance programs, which were shown to be operating without any public oversight and outside the limits of the US Constitution. The US government has charged Snowden with theft of government property, and two further charges under the 1917 Espionage Act. Each charge carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence.

With the US pursuing his extradition, Snowden is now in Russia, where he was formally granted three years’ residency from 1 August 2014, after a year of temporary asylum in Russia ended on 31st July 2014. Journalists continue to publish documents from Snowden that reveal the secret and unaccountable systems of modern global surveillance.

Edward Snowden: Sam Adams Award
Snowden talks at the Sam Adams Award award ceremony in October 2013 about the secret surveillance he revealed and its dangers to democracy.

One of the tasks of the trustees is to oversee the functioning of Courage, which has been set up to raise money for journalistic sources’ legal defence campaigns. Edward Snowden is its first recipient, but he will not be its last. We expect to be supporting more journalistic sources and whistleblowers in the future and we expect to grow as more journalistic sources are nominated as recipients.

It is the only fund endorsed by Edward Snowden. If you see others claiming to raise revenue for Edward Snowden, please report them to the trustees at: [email protected]

Edward Snowden has been charged by the US government with theft, “unauthorized communication of national defense information” and “willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person”. The last two charges fall under the 1917 Espionage Act.

Each of the three charges carry a maximum of ten years in prison plus a fine, totalling a possible 30-year sentence. It is possible that further charges may be brought against Snowden.

The US administration has already taken many actions towards the extradition of Edward Snowden. Not only have arrest and extradition warrants been issued to numerous countries, but US officials have also personally pressured political leaders and threatened to cut trade benefits for failure to pursue Snowden’s extradition. People who have assisted, or are suspected of associating with, Snowden have also been put at risk or harassed, including WikiLeaks journalist Sarah Harrison, who accompanied Edward Snowden during his transit from Hong Kong to Moscow, and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s partner David Miranda, who was detained for nine hours under the UK’s Terrorism Act while transiting through Heathrow airport.

Edward Snowden risks an unfair trial as there is no public interest or whistleblower exception under the Espionage Act. This means Snowden would be unable to use his intent as a defence. In an interview, he explained the reasoning behind his revelations: “I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.”

Snowden is not only at risk of legal punishments, but physical as well. Despite a letter from US Attorney-General Eric Holder that Edward Snowden would not be subject to the death penalty or torture, Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights, notes that these comments are “meaningless“. On the subject of torture Mr Ratner commented:

“Think about how the US defines torture. The US doesn’t really think that anything it did under the Bush era was torture, with the exception possibly of waterboarding. So that means Ed Snowden can be subjected to every enhanced interrogation techniques – you know, lights on all the time, loud noise, cold temperatures, hot temperatures, strapped into a chair. All of the, quote, ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ are allowed under US view of torture.” He also commented: “It doesn’t say anything in the letter [that the US] won’t put him into some underground cell and keep him there the rest of his life.”

To understand the threats against Edward Snowden, one need look no further than the other whistleblowers who have been prosecuted by the Obama administration. The Obama adminsitration boasts about the fact that they have “prosecuted twice as many cases under the Espionage Act as all other administrations combined”. A notable case is that of Chelsea Manning, who after three years of pretrial detainment, including under unlawful conditions, was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

The Obama administration’s crackdown on national security journalism and its whistleblowers has been escalating for some time and Edward Snowden’s revelations place him in the crosshairs.
