To fight for the right to keep private emails private, I’ve
created this Rally for my company, Lavabit: the encrypted-email
service said to have been used by Edward Snowden.
I’ve shut down Lavabit because I refuse to be complicit in the
crimes against the American people and the U.S. Constitution. I
wish I could say more about our situation.
What happens now? We at Lavabit have started preparing the
paperwork needed to continue fighting for the Constitution in the
4th Circuit Court of Appeals. A favorable decision would allow me
to resurrect Lavabit as an American company.
Defending the constitution is expensive! Help us by donating to
the Lavabit defense fund.
An American citizen running an American company, and he’s not even allowed to say why he’s been forced to shut down his company. I’ve already donated; if you care about true civil liberties, I encourage you to donate as well.
