The Team has picked up the baton from the Freedom of Information Foundation that had been defending the rights for information access for ten years before the Ministry for Justice of Russia marked it as a "foreign agent" NGO. The Foundation has now suspended its activities and the Team 29 has risen to defend the right to information.
29 is the number of the Russian Constitution article providing the right to freely look for, receive, transmit, produce and distribute information.
What you may need it for? For instance, to learn history of your country (up to now, many historical facts are still hidden in secret archives). Or to avoid unexpected criminal persecution for state secret disclosure. Or to avoid excessive payments for municipal utilities caused by incorrect data at your housing company's website.
