Czechia: Help Save the Internet from the Copyright Directive

On January 18, the EU’s member state governments will decide whether to move forward the Copyright in the Single Digital Market Directive—a set of regulations that would likely crush many small European tech startups, create an even weaker bargaining position for working European artists, and expose half a billion Europeans to mass, unaccountable algorithmic censorship. But you can help stop it.

Please write to the ministers responsible for Czechia's position, and urge them to vote against Article 13 and Article 11.

Poland: Help Save the Internet from the Copyright Directive

Six years ago, Polish netizens thronged the streets to save Europe from ACTA, a US-originated treaty that would have imposed broad censorship and surveillance on the Internet in copyright’s name. Today, the Internet needs your help to fight a new threat: the EU’s Copyright in the Single Digital Market Directive.

California: Let’s Get Police Policies and Training Materials Online

Californians have a fundamental right to understand the operations of the law enforcement agencies that they pay for.

One of the best ways to reach that understanding is to be able to review the policies, protocols, and training materials that officers must follow, whether it’s about the deployment of surveillance, or the use of deadly force.

Tell California Gov. Jerry Brown to sign S.B. 978 to require transparency by default for law enforcement rules and training materials across the state.

Tell the Senate to Pass a Strong Election Security Bill

The Senate is considering legislation meant to protect free and fair elections in the U.S. But one of the current proposals doesn’t include the two most important elements: universal paper ballots, and automatic “risk-limiting” audits.

Let’s tell the Senate: if it doesn't include these essential features, it's not a real election security bill.

California: Demand Community Control of Police Surveillance

SB 1186 is a proposed law that would subject the acquisition of police surveillance technology across California to public oversight. Modeled on successful local laws in Oakland, Santa Clara County, and elsewhere across the country, it would end an era of secrecy and expand democratic transparency. EFF supports SB 1186 and encourages the legislature to reject further changes and enact the law as currently drafted.
