Internet Freedom Event & Mint Distribution Support

Post by Ezra Pound » Mon Jun 02, 2014 12:35 pm

Dear Everyone,

Let me just start off by personally saying that it has truly been a privilege to use Linux Mint open-source OS. I have felt more secure and less confusion with Linux than any other OS, not to mention the flavor itself is admirable.
It has been roughly one year since the first NSA revelations has came to light and with that in mind an event will take place next Saturday on June 7th, 2014 at Washington Square Park, New York at 3PM to celebrate the anniversary. There will be discussions of how we, as a society, could strengthen not only our freedom on the internet but our natural rights to privacy while on the internet and off.
During this event we figured we'd distribute a bulk of CD's which would contain Linux Mint. Our aim is to inform the public to take precautious measures while on the internet by using alternative methods such as changing their OS to a more secure enviroment and to rise above this digital oppression by developing a public voice.
Although we thought Linux Mint would be the perfect platform to once and for all jumpstart the public into a world of awareness, we lack the funds to make a significant amount of copies. Therein, we would be extremely grateful if we had your support on this venture and help supply us with an ample amount of copies of your amazing OS and flavor.

The People

P.s., This would not only benefit us as a people, but the OS itself, gaining supporters and users.

You should contact Clem if you want Linux Mint to consider funding a promotion drive. June 7th is very close though :|
