[liberationtech] Need some advice re: online secure communications platform for a survivors group

I can not believe people are actually advising to use Google or things
hosted by SpiderOak but these solution might be secure but used for
advertisement purposes as well. Not sure if somebody already suggested
this but here is a list provided by huridocs:

also including Google and the below mentioned riseup. I also want to add
Greenhost which does host Mailman for client and is also expert in
secure hosting:

Kind regards,
Hapee
