Hi Fediverse 👋

no artwork, instead let's today 🙂

The Open Technology Fund: An important non-profit organization acting for global internet freedom. It backs projects like:

- The Tor Project: @torproject
- Delta Chat: @delta
- K-9 Mail: @k9mail
- Briar: @briar
- Tails: @tails
- Open Whisper Systems with
- many more 📜

Two days ago, US gov. made worrying changes to the OTF. So we signed this plea and hope you join in:

@switchingsoftware I will *not* sign because free software should be independently founded by the community.If the main part of the funding comes from a government,then they can simply cancel the funding after a project makes decisions which the government doesn't like.Especially with Trump,the funding by a government can't be seen as safe so I think it's better to end it now and let the community donate,even if that may be difficult for some projects at the beginning.
