Welcome to Liberté-info's fundraiser campaign!

Initially published on March 6 2012
By Mehdi

Our non-profit will soon celebrate its first anniversary: we're very excited because, in less than a year, this adventure has allowed us to get to know and befriend exceptional people, and join critical causes and movements for the defense of freedom, both online and offline.

Like virtually every official outfit, we face unavoidable (like the insurance) expenses, or needed ones (e.g. the web hosting service); no taxes there, as our activity is not commercial and our revenues (and running costs) ridiculously small... but we still have to pay those bills.

"Why haven't you started a fundraiser earlier?", you may ask. Well, we could have done just that. However, as a matter of principle, for transparency (see below the list of past year's and this year's expenses - so far) and pragmatism's sake, decision was made not to ask for donations before we could show what we accomplished after a year of activity.

Also as a matter of principle, and although we could, we did not (and will not) ask for state subsidies, since that would create a dependency that is contrary to our wish to remain fully independant. We accept money from citizens, and citizens only. Not from the government, not from any other state institution, not from a company.

Now everyone is free to decide whether we deserve a donation, and of how much! ;-)
This is the list of all our expenses so far, and of the single donation (in bitcoin!) we received ;-)
The status of the donations will be updated several times a week to allow everyone to keep track of donations. We will not publish the names of the donors.

Help us cover our expenses and keep advancing the fight for a truly democratic digital space! Assange and Manning are still deprived of their freedom, Rudolf Elmer is still fighting bank Julius Baer and the Zurich prosecution office, freedom of speech, of information, of the press, the right to share and the free access to culture and knowledge are under heavy and constant attack. Help us change this!

You can donate through the following channels:

Bitcoin (preferred!): 1Pn8DSto8ey294p11swNiboRDwzwXh41cR
