Also on Tuesday, Feb 23, there will be a rally in Washington DC urging the federal government: Don't Break Our Phones!
WHEN: Tuesday, Feb 23, 5:30pm
WHERE: FBI Building, 935 Pennsylvania Ave and 9th Street NW (map)
ORGANIZERS: Fight for the Future
The FBI has obtained a court order to force Apple to provide a "back door" to an iPhone used by one of the perpetrators of the San Bernardino shootings. The problem is, that's a back door to everyone else's iPhone as well - a terrible idea for your own security, for civil liberties, and for human rights here and abroad. But don't take our word for it -- read what Electronic Frontier Foundation ("security agencies ...[creating] powers that are later used more widely and eventually abused"), Bill of Rights Defense Committee ("Public opinion is key: law enforcement agencies know that the public values privacy), the ACLU ("government’s legal theory is unbounded and dangerous") and Apple have to say about it.
If you go, take pictures and send them, your story, and your reason for joining the rally to MCCRC at email@example.com.
