CopBlock Hits 3 Year Anniversary

It is with mixed emotions we celebrate CopBlock‘s 3rd anniversary of educating people that “badges don’t grant extra rights”.

  • On the one hand, it’s encouraging to see how many people have been reading CopBlock and how it has grown.
  • On the other hand, as Pete Eyre would say, we would rather a day come when this type of public spotlight and activism is no longer needed.

So it is with optimism and sadness that CopBlock must continue on.

CopBlock Analytics

Right now the site is averaging about 4,500 visits per day. We hate doing the whole begging for money thing but just remember that keeping a site with this amount of traffic up-and-running,  loading quick, and secure from attacks is expensive in both time and money. If you place value on our impact please support us.

We believe in this so much that we do this whether the community support it or not but it sure makes it easier when we aren’t alone.

CopBlock Groups

There are also dozens of CopBlock sub groups that have sprung up.

    Thanks so much for your involvement since the beginning Blake – you and the awesome team at Liberty Web Alliance have been integral to the reach of Cop Block and more-importantly, the spread of the rights-respecting ideas behind the decentralized project.

    Here’s to the continued evolution!

    CopBlock has helped shed light on police abuses that would have otherwise gone unseen. It is vital to support this institution that is maturing every single day into an organization that is quickly highlighting the injustices of the world on a larger scale.
