So apparently a new movement is starting up to demand increase privacy measures from websites to protect against NSA mass surveillance and they are planning a day of action of June 5th. We could probably get a good article out of this, so I'll create a draft for it.  Spirit of Eagle (talk) 04:05, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
- Definitely. Let's jump on it. Do you have the draft kicking somewhere? Is it a faux pas for all of us to work on your draft? I wonder if we can get it out before June 5th. —f3ndot (TALK) (EMAIL) (PGP) 01:16, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Mass Surveillance At Wikimania 2014
My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.
One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.
This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:
• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film
• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.
• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.
• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____
• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

Translation Task Force/Translation to Greek?
Hello, the mass surveillance articles are great. As this is a matter of global scale, these should exist in more languages in order to raise awareness about it. Being Greek, I'm especially interested in the Greek audience. I'd like to see these articles translated into Greek, but it's too much work for one person alone. The ideal approach would be to have a translation task force and work in collaboration with the respective local Wikipedia. Could this be an attainable goal? Any sugggestions on how the translation can be accomplished? Thank you. FleetEye (talk) 12:48, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
- @FleetEye: The Greek Wikipedia has the Agora: el: Βικιπαίδεια:Αγορά. What you may do is find a few articles you are interested in and request for translations, and/or ask for the creation of a WikiProject on the Greek Wikipedia. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:02, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
