Only have one minute? Read on……..
Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a global ecosystem of self organising groups that use non-violent direct action, proven to achieve change, with a vision to create a world fit for future generations.
Our mission is momentum driven mobilization aiming to reach a tipping point of people involved in activism, to leverage the holders of power.
We have developed awesome and secure global organization platforms used by over 160,000 ¨rebels¨, to support many more rebels on the ground.
We are being attacked, again. We need to secure our servers, need to provide more services & these new capabilities can also support more climate orgs.
? Activists are under attack online
- DDoS attacks
- 160,000 accounts at risk
= More capacity to resist near constant DDoS attacks then acquire the hardware and rent rack space to implement our own firewall that can resist pretty much any take-down attack.
? Activists don't know which VPNs to trust & not all are able to afford it.
= An OpenVPN service is proposed with rotating credentials, traffic-shaped as needed (QoS).
? Activists need more secure and free webmail service.
= We need to expand our webmail service movement wide. Requiring space and support.
? Organising globally creates many language challenges for equitable connection.
= Develop instantaneous translation capability on our platforms.
? Limited capacity for tech support and training.
Which is needed to expand use of platforms and services globally
= Increase reactive capacity for tech support ticket system.
= Develop improved training for sys admins, such as DIY courses and mentoring.
? Truth Global Leaks website needs finishing.
Content needs checking by XR Scientists and for ethical considerations before publication.
= Payment for people to finish it and to review information before publication.
? Many new XR groups come into the world without a tech team, funding or any means to host their own website.
= Free website hosting. We can both provide a website template and host websites for groups.
? Many activists & earth defender groups in the global network don't yet have the tools or protection.
= We provide protection for groups using Data Center Light & can give groups guidance.
