What’s the problem?
The web giants are so powerful that they exercise technical, economic, cultural and political domination over our societies.
These dominations pose many problems for our freedoms:
- Surveillance capitalism
- Democratic drift
- Closure to a single vision of society
- Centralization of data and attention
What are the solutions?
Free software communities offer ethical alternatives to to the platforms centralised by the web giants: It is possible to find trusted services that respect our privacy!
Deconstructing and changing our digital habits also means making efforts on a daily basis. Here are some links to help you in your emancipation:
Design useful tools
But wasn’t there more before…?
Between 2014 and 2019, we have made almost 40 online services available
to users with the De-google-ify Internet campaign.
In 2019, we have decided to close or restrict some of these services.
