Hey there,

We are in contact with some non-government funding bodies that would be
interested in immediately funding technology and communications
initiatives to assist the popular wave of protests respond to the
ensuing violent crackdown in Bahrain, Libya etc. Without going into
details, there is a considerable amount of funds to disperse - which can
be done now and with limited amounts of paperwork - including towards
human, hardware or software solutions. Circumvention, digital security,
citizen media, and internet shutdown response are some of the areas to
put forward. Local initiatives, international interventions, (secure)
innovative ideas and proven concepts will be considered. Email me
separately or post worthwhile ideas on this thread.
