    10 ========================================================================

    12 Welcome to the eleventh issue in 2015 of Tor Weekly News, the weekly
    13 newsletter that covers what’s happening in the Tor community.
    14 
    15 An animated introduction to Tor
    16 -------------------------------
    17 
    18 Nima Fatemi announced [1] the release of a short animation offering
    19 Internet users a brief and lively introduction to the tracking and
    20 surveillance they face online, and the ways in which Tor Browser can
    21 protect them. The result of a collaboration between the Tor Project and
    22 KAJART Studio, the video is available for download or sharing online,
    23 with voiceovers in five languages and subtitles in a further three.
    24 
    25 “But we still have work to do”, as Nima explained. “If you have an idea
    26 for making better videos and documentation, or if you’re a visual artist
    27 and you can help us explain these complex technologies in simple and
    28 understandable forms to inexperienced users”, then please see the Tor
    29 Project’s website [2] for ways to get in touch; the same goes if you
    30 want this animation to be available in your language. See Nima’s post
    31 for further details, and be sure to share the video with your friends
    32 and contacts!

    40 Following Reddit’s generous donation [3] to the Tor Project, Tor
    41 developers and community members in attendance at the Circumvention Tech
    42 Festival in Valencia responded with a surprise video thank-you
    43 message [4]. Bonus points if you can identify everyone who took part…
