Tonga (operated locally)

History

On September 13, 2001, Lance Cottrell of Anonymizer.com posted the following to the Cypherpunks mailing list.:

In addition to showing that we will not be cowed into giving up our cherished freedoms by terrorists, this is a time when the world needs these services more than ever. In crises there is a tendency for repressive governments to crack down on communications and free access to information. It is at exactly those times that the privacy community must shine its brightest.

Two days later, on September 15, 2001, the Tonga Remailer was opened.
