This is a call to the Anonymous to express their solidarity with the people of Occupied Kashmir, who after decades of oppression, are now being completely cut-out from the rest of the world.

On February 9, the Indian government executedof Afzal Guru, in connection with 2001 Parliament attack. The question whether he was guilty or not is debatable and the majority of Kashmiris and people from civil rights groups within India and Amnesty International maintain that Afzal wasn’t give a fair trail and was hanged to death to satisfy the ‘collective conscience’ of the Indian society.

This demonstration of differential justice treatment for the Muslim Kashmiris ignited a wave of outrage among the population. In anticipation of this reaction, even before the Indian Home Ministry confirmed that Afzal Guru had been hanged and his family notified, a media blackout and a strict curfew was enforced in almost every part of Kashmir and the internet shutdown. The execution sparked a wave of protests in the region followed by a brutal repression. Many protesters have been injured and three deaths at the hands on Indian forces have been confired and people fear that the toll will rise.

Since the beginning, the media blackout has intensified in parallel to an escalation of the violence toward the protestors. The latest report is that following night protests in Watergaam, an injured youth remains in critical condition. The curfew is planned to remain until Friday. Much can happen to protesters without the eyes of the world on Kashmir to witness their plight. The curfew is still in place as this press release is being written and we have received reports from people in Kashmir that there is a shortage of essential supplies.We asked to all Anons to join us in helping lifting the curfew, and re-establish a media presence and the internet to make sure the Kashmiris are safe from repression and their aspirations are heard by the world.

We are Legion.
We do not forget.
We do not forgive.
Expect Us!

France Imposes Media Blackout on Mali Invasion

In Mali, News on January 26, 2013 at 9:14 AM

01/25/2013

France has in an unprecedented move called for a total media blackout in what many say is an attempt to save her image from damages caused upon her former colony Mali.

 

The ban on the media comes as the international Federation for Human rights issue a damning report accusing both the French and Malian troops of gross human rights violation.

In a meeting called to sensitize local journalists about the war in the north, Malian army introduced what they call the rule of engagement for any journalist wishing to cover the war in the north.

Analysts in the Malian capital Bamako say the media blackout could be linked to reports of grave human rights violation by the ground troops as echoed by the International Federation for Human Rights.
According to the federation, some people have been killed only for failure to carry valid identification documents, an accusation Malian authorities have denied.

According to the Malian military most of the journalists have to be trained about what happens in the battle field before they can access the areas currently being controlled by the anti government fighters.

The International Federation for Human Rights says over twenty people have so far been executed in the northern town of Sevare with more reports of execution reported in the towns of Niono and Mopti.

Meanwhile Burkinafaso has also joined in the conflict, deploying a contingent of one hundred and sixty soldiers in the northern town of Markala.

Blackout Looming: Thousands to Lose Internet Access as FBI Shuts Down Servers

RT:

On July 9, thousands of Internet users worldwide could lose access after the FBI shuts down temporary DNS servers that replaced fraudulent servers operated by hackers.

Major companies and US government agencies are amongst those that could be blocked out, according to the Internet security firm IID.

The blackout will affect systems infected with the DNSChanger Trojan, a malware program that altered user searches and redirected them to pages offering fraudulent and, in some cases, dangerous products.

Last November the FBI arrested and charged six Estonian men behind the malware as part of Operation Ghost Click. These hackers were able to make a fortune off their project, raking in millions for ads placed on their fraudulent websites.

On the eve of the arrests, the FBI hired Paul Vixie, chairman of the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) to install two temporary Internet servers that would prevent infected users from losing access to the Internet once the DNSChanger botnet was shut down. These users were advised to take steps to get rid of the malware on their computers, and the DNSChanger Working Group was set up by the computer industry and law enforcement to come up with a plan to phase out the surrogate servers.

The FBI was initially planning to shut down their provisional servers in March, but a US district court ruled the provisional servers were to remain operation until July 9.

Running the temporary servers for eight months has cost the FBI $87,000.

With the looming deadline approaching, estimates suggest up to 360,000 unique Internet addresses are still using the rogue servers, with most of them based in the US, according to federal authorities. Other countries with over 20,000 each include Italy, Canada, India, the United Kingdom and Germany. This is down from the over half a million addresses registered when the six hackers were arrested, but still enough to paralyze the functioning of important websites. At its peak several years ago, up to six million systems worldwide were infected with the malware.

The DNS system is a network of servers that translates a web address into a numerical IP address used by computers. Computers affected by the DNSChanger worm were reprogrammed to access rogue DNS servers that redirected them to fraudulent websites.
