We believe that more information means more choice, more freedom and ultimately more power for the individual.
We’ve created an interactive map of Government Requests that shows the number of government inquiries for information about users and requests for Google to take down or censor content. We hope this step toward greater transparency will help in ongoing discussions about the appropriate scope and authority of government requests.

Peacefire (USA)
http://www.peacefire.org/
Peacefire.org was created in August 1996 to represent the interests of people under 18 in the debate over freedom of speech on the Internet.
Peacefire is a "people for young people's freedom of speech" organization, not a "young people for freedom of speech" organization. In other words, you can join at any age if you are against censorship for students and people under 18 in general. Peacefire used to be more of a "teens only" group, but we realized that there was no point in excluding what any potential members had to offer, simply based on their age.
In October 1998, we added pages to Peacefire.org about how to disable the different censorware programs.

The Virtual Activist 2.0
A Training Course developed by Audrie Krause, Michael Stein, Judi Clark, Theresa Chen, Jasmine Li, Josh Dimon, Jennifer Kanouse, and Jill Herschman
The Internet is a powerful tool that allows us to expand our networks by identifying and communicating with like-minded people anywhere in the world. It enables us to disseminate information widely, cheaply, and instantaneously.
Although you'll need some special skills to build and maintain a Web site, email is easily mastered even if you have little or no technical expertise. If you can read and write and your computer has a modem, you can be a Virtual Activist!
With its blinking graphics, streaming video, and interactive capabilities, the Web gets a lot more attention than plain old text-based email. But don't let email's simplicity fool you. For activists and nonprofit organizations engaged in advocacy, email is the tool of choice.
In this virtual classroom, NetAction will teach you how to use email and the Web as effective, inexpensive, and efficient tools for organizing, outreach, and advocacy.

If you're part of an activist group, talk radio is one of the most effective ways to reach your audience. The opportunities afforded are unparalleled.
Did you know that there are 2,000 radio hosts in the United States? So, if each one hosts a weekly two-hour program, and has one guest for each hour, then 4,000 guest slots need to be filled weekly. Of course, while some hosts interview guests five days a week, others, such as Rush Limbaugh, prefer not to share their time.

The Free Range Activism Web Site (FRAW) has been the on-line arm of the Free Range Network since 1996 (when it originally started up as part of the GreenNet system). In the early days much of the content was scanned government reports.
Today, now that this task is being done by the government themselves, the role of the web site has changed significantly – most of the content is now documentation relating to the work carried out by those associated with the network.
