[liberationtech] Group needs a 'secure' and 'anonymous' means to communicate

What is the threat model? Who is the adversary? Would you trust third-party
service providers with the contents of the conversation or does
communication need to be only visible to participants? If you think it's
the latter, is the concern that a service provider could be compelled to
reveal the conversation?

How do people join? Will they have a secure side-channel to communicate,
say, a URL? Is there a pre-established set of participants or do you need
to handle arbitrary participants joining in?
