Tor is not perfect, but it does help people be more anonymous on the internet than otherwise. This public library in New Hampshire should be commended for participating, rather than be intimidated by our government into shutting it down.
A friend writes:
"The town I lived in until a year ago, Lebanon NH, set up a Tor node at their public library earlier this year, with the Library Freedom Project https://libraryfreedomproject.org/
. The DHS and local police just put pressure on them to turn it off by making vague threats that the resource might be used by criminals. One wonders whether criminals might use books in the library too."If you care about the freedom to read what you like without the police always looking over your shoulder, please take a moment to read the statement there and consider signing the EFF petition to the DHS not to intimidate libraries out of providing useful resources:https://act.eff.org/action/support-tor-and-intellectual-freedom-in-libraries
