Calls for Tor shutdown

A group is calling for a 24-hour shutdown of the Tor network to protest recent developments at the project.

According to a report by Softpedia, the reasons for the protest include the way Tor dealt with the Jake Applebaum sexual misconduct accusations and because of recent rumours it is letting former government agents into its ranks.

The protest is called #torstrike, and was uploaded on the GhostBin website.

It asks Tor users not to use the service for 24 hours and for Tor workers to shut down nodes and not work on the Tor Project’s software.

“The call for protest called on other Tor-related projects like the Tails OS and the Library Freedom Project to join the Tor blackout,” stated the report.
