I never met Aaron afaik. However many of my friends were very close to him.
I do think that Aaron would want his name and actions to be used in a way to fight for the freedoms he did, but he shouldn't have had to die for it, and I'm sensitive to how painful it is for loved ones.
@cwebber I still remember getting the news on the backdrop of one of my dearest friends leaving to States to study in the MIT.
There was hardly any event which radicalised me as much as Aaron's death, to a degree of plausibly participating in anti-surveilance campaigns ran by some international activist group.
It took a complete dienchantment and disappointment in humans for me to mellow out.
Aaron will never be forgotten. Worldwide.
