The US government has begun a War on Information, arresting those who fight for freedom of information as well as their supporters. This brutal crackdown on “hackers,” “leakers,” and “hacktivists” is occurring throughout the United States and internationally.
There is maybe nothing in life as stomach-churningly terrifying as feeling or even anticipating the weight of the US Government coming down on you… but you do NOT stand alone. You have help. You have lawyers who believe in the cause.
The National Lawyers Guild stands with those who aim to shine a light on corruption. We stand with those who stand against corporate bullying, and with those who understand that sharing knowledge is critical to a democracy.
The NLG has a 75 year history of defending those who are attacked in the pursuit of justice, equality, and freedom, and we are ready to defend Anons and others who have been targeted for their pursuit of knowledge and the freedom of information.
In fact, we are already helping connect some of those targeted by the government with legal help, and we have more lawyers at the ready. Call us at 888-NLG-DANK to reach a hotline operator, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course we don’t have lawyers EVERYWHERE, but we will try to find a lawyer in your jurisdiction.
You can also read about the history of the NLG, learn about your rights online, and how to deal with law enforcement.
