Project Megaphone Banner

Description

Project Megaphone is a simple script that you can add to your site. The script checks the IP of each visitor, and if they are within a 700km radius of Washington, D.C., displays a banner for (Project Megaphone) informing the user of the rally.

To mark the law’s anniversary, the EFF, ACLU, Demand Progress, Free Press and dozens of other public advocacy groups in the StopWatching.us coalition are planning a rally to protest mass surveillance in Washington, DC. We’ve spent countless hours organizing buses to transport people from nearby cities, assembled a great lineup of speakers, and filed the relevant permits.

If you own a website, no matter how big or small, we need your help.

Mass surveillance is a grave challenge to privacy on the Internet, and threatens our ability to communicate and conduct transactions privately online. This is a critical moment: If we don’t convince Congress to make meaningful change now, while Snowden’s leaks have the public’s attention, we may never have another chance.
