+At Tails, our mission is to empower people worldwide by giving out an operating
+system that protects from surveillance and censorship.
+We build liberating technology to put people in control of their digital lives
+because the most vulnerable and oppressed people are the most in need of
+privacy and security:
+- Journalists and whistleblowers use Tails to denounce the wrongdoings
+ of governments and corporations.
+- Activists use Tails to avoid surveillance or organize their
+ struggles for liberatory social change.
+- Human-rights defenders use Tails to avoid censorship and report
+ human-rights violations.
+- Domestic violence survivors use Tails to escape surveillance in
+ their homes.
+- Privacy-concerned citizens use Tails to avoid online tracking.
+And we give out Tails for free because nobody should have to pay to be safe
+while using computers.
+But we know that many of the people who need Tails the most cannot donate,
+because they would get in trouble for giving to an anti-surveillance tool like
+Tails, or simply because they don't have the money.
+Why Tails is more important than ever
+The [2019 World Press Freedom
+Index]( compiled
+by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) shows how hatred of journalists has
+degenerated into violence, contributing to an increase in fear. The number of
+countries regarded as safe, where journalists can work in complete security,
+continues to decline, while authoritarian regimes continue to tighten their
+grip on the media.
+According to the [2019 Report of United Nations' Special Rapporteur David
+surveillance of individuals – often journalists, activists, opposition figures,
+critics and others exercising their right to freedom of expression – thrives
+because of weak controls on exports and transfers of surveillance technology to
+repressive governments. This surveillance is known to lead to arbitrary
+detention, sometimes to torture and possibly to extrajudicial killings.
+These technologies include targeted malware, online interception of network
+communications, and deep packet inspection; all technologies that Tails is one
+of the best tool to protect from.
+A legal framework to regulate this surveillance industry, as recommended by
+David Kaye, might be useful for the future. But digital freedom tools like
+Tails are more needed than ever right now, in an act of empowerment and
+You are our best guarantee
+We often hear complaints about software projects
+that are meant to fight surveillance, like Tor and Tails, getting funds
+from the US government. We
+share this concern and we will never be at ease
+as long as the well-being of our
+project depends on such funding.
+This is why it's so important to be sustained by users like you: our
+independence depends on you.
+Last year, donations from passionate people like you were our first source of
+funding. We are extremely proud of this. Let's keep it like this!
+In 2017&ndash;2019, our money came from:
