Concerned about Net Neutrality? Don't want ISPs selling who you communicate
with to the highest bidder? Want an ISP that meets your needs?

Then come to the Community Meshnet Workshop this Saturday, February 10th,
from 1-4pm at the Somerville Public Library, 79 Highland Ave, Somerville.

Community mesh networks such as NYC Mesh <https://nycmesh.net/>, Guifi.net
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guifi.net> in Spain and Freifunk
<https://freifunk.net/en/> in Germany have already shown that community
ISPs work.

We would appreciate it if you downloaded and put up this flyer for the
February workshop
<https://masspirates.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/MESH-NETWORKING.pdf>
that
the Somerville Cryptoparty put together. You can also share the Somerville
Cryptoparty page <https://www.cryptoparty.in/boston> or the February
Facebook event
