The last month nearly killed our most active volunteers..
We have been working flat out on lots of our core issues including surveillance - with Prism, Tempora, Snowden - local government transparency, filtering and regulation as well as the usual stream of local issues. Its been hard, but it has also been a lot of fun and, I know we managed to have an impact. People have been writing to their MPs about Prism using our template and we have had many positive responses there too, its a start, people noticed, but there is more to do.
It has been great that orepur core issues have been so prominent in the press, fantastic that there has been a wider discussion about whistleblowing and mass surveillance, but we need to keep working to show that there is a better way.
