We believe Telegram is the platform for real change. It’s used by protesters in Hong Kong and other pro-democracy movements, and - if used correctly - it can keep activists safe. It will help us to organise and do so quickly to defend our democracy.

GET THE APP: https://telegram.org/apps

Why Telegram?
Unlike on social networks or WhatsApp, you don’t have to 'friend' anyone, don't need a profile and don't need to reveal your phone number. It's also faster to read than posts on any social network and scales to thousands of people. It’s easier and faster to build new networks than being inside closed WhatsApp groups or slowed-down by trolls on social networks.

DISCUSSION GUIDANCE

– A Telegram Channel broadcasts, and we can comment in the Discussion
– Consider anything you say as being said in public. Don't share any personal or sensitive data here.
– Flag or report any bad actors abuse to the admins, @defenddemocracy or @blockthecoup.
– Nobody can see your phone number UNLESS you share your contact details directly with them (so its much better than WhatsApp)
– You DO NOT have to set a real name or a username AT ALL so you can protect your privacy.
– Staying safe: In your settings do not automatically download photos or files that are posted in a group or channel. Here's how: Got to Settings > Data and Storage > Save Incoming Photos > Switch off all switches

To be completely anonymous: Put a new SIM into a spare phone and use once to get the confirmation text from Telegram.

Demand Democracy is fresh way to broadcast messages to phones, and get organised, using the powerful Telegram app.

We aim to encourage people to vote in the UK General Election.

Unlike on social networks or WhatsApp, you don’t have to 'friend' anyone, don't need a profile, don't need to reveal your name or phone number, and there's no limit to the number of people who can subscribe.

You can also chat about encouraging voting in the discussion groups.

Please subscribe and join! We are looking for volunteers to post content and to encourage voting.

BREAKING: New launch by @adamstamper, a member of @TechForUK

The UK’s “first past the post system” means tiny numbers of voters have huge power.

Last time 1️⃣4️⃣M people didn't vote.

A few could have FLIPPED the result.

So how “flippable” is your area?

Hi all!

The @TechForUK tech community has been busy building apps for this election.

We hope this new launch is something you feel you can tangibly & monetarily support.

It has been validated and we know it works.

We think it could be the most powerful app to affect the election yet launched.

Here’s the rundown:

In the absence of electoral pacts between parties, people’s votes are split between many parties, and without working together we might snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

If the parties that are opposing Brexit or at least offering a referendum can’t work together then we have to be smart and use the power of the crowd.

We have a strategy.

Swap My Vote helps voters work together to make sure this victory is theirs!

Unbelievably, 70% of people’s votes are regularly wasted at general elections in this country. In 2017, that was 22 million people’s votes.

That’s where Swap My Vote comes in…

We pair you up with another voter who votes for your party where they could have a better chance of getting elected, and you do the same for them.

It's a win-win.

*We’ve already proved that this works in 2015 and 2017.*

But, this time, we want to reach even more people than ever before – the more people that swap their votes, the better and fairer the election result will be.

There is a lot to do. For the last two election periods, it has been a full-time job.

Building an army of tens of thousands of voters takes a lot of community outreach, press and radio work, supporting people with questions and queries, and we want to keep making the tool better and better (we have a roadmap).…

We have launched the below crowdfunder.

*We would like to ask you to donate in order to kick-start this campaign and show that it has been validated by early backers.*

Thank you in advance!
