Thank you for viewing my campaign,
Before I begin I would like to start with saying a bit about myself. I am a UK based dad of two lovely girls and carer to my partner. I am also very interested in politics and IT but having a family makes it much more difficult to to get involved as much as I would like; I wanted to find a way of getting involved by using my knowledge in IT to create and administrate from home, a project that will allow me to get involved with something from home.
My aim is to put together a social network for people who are interested in politics and be able to organise events, demos and campaigns with less of the constraints by mainstream social networking platforms.
Have you ever wondered if there was a political website that feels like what is already familiar, but more geared to politics with privacy at the centre?
Do you want to have a safer a more secure space to run your campaigns on without fear of trolling?
Would you like to use a platform that’s developed for, managed defended and run for the people, by the people?
Does the fact that platforms run by technology companies using your information make you feel uneasy about your private information? We all know Facebook and the big tech companies sells your data to various parties and privacy is not guaranteed and neither is your security.
If the answer to any of these questions is “YES” then you’re probably already thinking that Facebook or Twitter don’t quite cut it for you and doesn’t quite meet your needs.
Whatever your interest whether it’s campaigning against racism, gender/sex inequality/discrimination or class struggle, this might just be up your street. If you’re interested in feminism, workers rights, sex workers rights, environmental issues, transgender activism or anti racism, this site will cater for those things.
Your donations big or small will go to the following aspects of this project.
- Purchase of an open source platform that will be the social networking site itself. (OSSN is $219 which is roughly £175)
- The majority of the initial donations will go towards Computer parts required to build a server for the platform to host the site on as I will be hosting this from home.
- Help withRunning costs (Electricity)
