Agreed. I also liked "The most vulnerable and oppressed people are the
most in need of privacy and security."

I agree that the statement could be a bit stronger…

To me, "where [some of us] come from" seems limited to geographic parts
of the world that I believe do not represent the world as a whole - thus
do not represent the struggles, activism or engagement on a global level
- while my goal by working on Tails aims at seeing it used by a larger
diversity of people, who may be involved in a huge variety of local or
global struggles.

This is why your proposal - in its current form at least - seems too
limiting. I'm afraid of such a confinement. Maybe you can formulate it
in a way that would address these issues.
