Apple can no longer be trusted on privacy and that makes plans like this very scary.
Mobilizon is an event organising platform for the Fediverse, a free open source alternative to Facebook Events.
You can find out more at:
Mobilizon instances federate with the rest of the Fediverse, so people on Mastodon can follow Mobilizon accounts and see their latest events.
You can join an existing instance, there's a list of instances at https://instances.joinmobilizon.org
If you're technically skilled, you can create your own instance using the instructions at https://docs.joinmobilizon.org/administration/install

If we don’t do anything to stop the sale of this technology, it’s not just going to be 50,000 targets. It’s going to be 50 million targets, and it’s going to happen much more quickly than any of us expect. https://t.co/kXt6d4ahqZ
