Heard of them yet?  They just recently won $10,000 at ContactCon in New York. They built FreedomTowers and FreedomLInk for OWS.

From their webpage:
http://freenetworkfoundation.org

    We are an organization committed to the tenets of free information, free culture, and free society.
    We hold that advances in information technology provide humanity with the ability to effectively face global challenges.
    We contend that our very ability to mobilize, organize, and bring about change depends on our ability to communicate.
    We see that our ability to communicate is purchased from a handful of powerful entities.
    We know that we cannot depend on these entities to support movement away from a status quo from which they are the beneficiaries.
    We believe that access to a free network is a human right, and a necessary tool for environmental and social justice.

They have a PayPal donation link on their site.  I don't know why a group like this hasn't started accepting Bitcoin donations already.

I sent them a message letting them know I refuse to use PayPal ( I explained why, including the recent Diaspora* thing, which I could easily see happening to them.. I am sure I don't need to explain more about the problems with PayPal on this forum ) just like they refuse to use unfree forms of social media like FaceBook, and suggested they start to accept donations in Bitcoin, which one would think fits right in with their philosophy and intentions to work towards a free culture and society.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

There is a nice video just out describing the Free Network Foundation's involvement in providing mesh internet technology at #OWS:
 - http://motherboard.vice.com/2012/3/28/motherboard-tv-free-the-network (length: 30 minutes)

or the 90 second trailer:

The Free Network Foundation's Blog and Twitter:

They are now working with the builder of a mobile app called Occupy.Here, for a messaging board meant to function autonomously for users local to the router, without needing functioning WAN access to the Internet.

That might be useful for person-to-person trading.

Just an update:

Quote
We’ll be able to help folks use this very clean frequency for fixed wireless mesh networks across the country.

If you’re interested in operating a free network at these frequencies, let us know by emailing info [at] free network foundation [dot] org.

There is lots of hardware out there that can operate at these frequencies, and with the proliferation of Software Defined Radio, it is often simply a matter of updating the radio firmware. We look forward to doing our first 3650 experiments in the coming days as we deploy the core infrastructure for our Kansas City research network.
