Fight for the Future is helping organize rallies to support Apple in its battle with the FBI/Justice Department in its battle over whether the feds should get access to the iPhone of a shooter who killed 14 people in the San Bernardino terror attack.
The rallies will be held at Apple stores in more than 40 cities on Tuesday, February 23 at 5:30 p.m. local time. In addition, Fight for the Future says that those in Washington, DC can attend a protest at the FBI's headquarters at the same time. If you’re interested, show up at 5:30 (your time) and gather in front of your local Apple retail store holding signs or phones, computers, and tablets open to ProtestSign.org (which turns your device into a handy protest sign!) You can also bring your own handmade sign too! Our basic message is: “FBI: Don’t break our iPhones!” and “Secure Phones Save Lives.”
Fight for the Future (www.fightforthefuture.org) is a nonprofit “dedicated to protecting and expanding the Internet's transformative power in our lives by creating civic campaigns that are engaging for millions of people.”
