In this time of urgency we will dispense with commentary and get right to our point - we would like to help as best as we can and at this time that seems to involve providing information to prevent internet surveillance and censorship.
Below are links for information from encryption of devices and communications to by-passing blocked sites and more. This is but a very rough sampling of what is available via the internet - efforts are being made to provide a more comprehensive paste of information but we wanted you to have something now to get you started. If you have any questions you are always free to ask an Anon for a DM.
This is not to be a substitute for common sense and/or other protection methods that you yourself must consider in this time of violent unrest.
There is no revolution or change without you so please keep yourselves safe first and foremost.
**** ENCRYPTION / ENCODING INTERNET COMMUNICATIONS AND TRAFFIC ****
TOR Browser Bundle - free, quick and easy encryption of internet browser activites.It prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked. The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit.
VPN (Virtual Private Network) - encrypts your traffic. Paid are far superior as they often do not log your IP address (IDs or aides in IDing your location) however free can be appropriate in SOME situations - you must think this thru always keep the worse case scenario in mind - your VPN drops out leaving you exposed - layer a free VPN with TOR
