March 21, 2016
Fight for the Future, a digital rights group, is all set to raise voices against what it calls the FBI's attempts to force Apple to weaken iPhone security. The group has launched an online campaign #SaveSecurity to collect comments from people worried about the implication of FBI's request for Apple to unlock the phone belonging to a terror suspect in the San Bernardino shootings.
#SaveSecurity has gained support from tech companies and advocacy groups, including Reddit, Google, Wikimedia, CREDO Mobile, Private Internet Access, Thunderclap, Goldenfrog, the ACLU, and the Freedom of the Press Foundation, along with prominent technology experts Bruce Schneier and Cory Doctorow.
Advocates will hold a press conference before and immediately after the hearing tomorrow, March 22, outside the courthouse. At the same time, protestors will be demonstrating comments collected from #SaveSecurity campaign through a digital display.
"It is not only about a single phone, but it is a matter of safety and security for millions of people all over the world," said Evan Greer, campaign director of Fight for the Future. He said the group will be present outside the courthouse to ensure that people's voices are heard, because what the government is demanding will put all in danger.
The Digital Rights Group was also behind 50 rapid response protests outside Apple stores and FBI headquarters last month. For more information on the #SaveSecurity, click here.
