Today we celebrate #HumanRightsDay. Passed exactly 70 years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights memorializes the basic notion that fundamental freedoms, including privacy, expression, and access to information, are essential for people all over the world.

We must defend and protect the universal human rights to privacy and freedom online. Tor is critical in this fight.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.
