We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

In some jurisdictions circumventing the block is rarely persecuted.  Therefore presumably Lantern is intended for that use case.

I had not heard about lantern until today. My impression is it is tor without security. It just gives people a way to access blocked sites, and the blocked sites have to be on a list. It sounds like a potential security nightmare. The only obvious advantage versus tor would be speed?  Hmmm...

Anyone know about this project and have an opinion?
