TorrentFreak Censored at Airport

While some people still wonder why copyright reform is much sought after by modern intellectuals and entrepreneurs, we are given a clear and simple example of why the movement for free and open information grows stronger by the day. A company called Datavalet which is apparently provides centralized wifi networks to cater to the needs of conventions centers, education, enterprise, government, hospitality, health, government, retail, multi-dwelling units and, in this case, an airport in Toronto.

Well, it is great to see so many places offering access to the internets as it has become so integral to the lives of so many. What is not so great is to come to find out that a popular new site has been censored for no apparent reason other than an assumption that it somehow violates some hypothetical copyright license. Datavalet blatantly classifies the site as a “Torrent Repository,” which if you think about it, is not in itself a violation of any copyright license either.

As Datavalet can technically be considered an ISP, since when are ISPs permitted to implement what they call “content control”? Does your ISP decide which news you are allow to view? Does your ISP censor your news based on a vague implication of copyright infringement? Maybe this is normal if you live in China, but in the western world, this is not acceptable.

We realize that mistakes happen and that as a business, Datavalet must look out for it’s own interest and operate within the confines of the law. This is why we urge Datavalet and other ISPs to demand that safe harbor from the actions of their users be preserved. This is the only way to ensure that mistakes like this which could prove to be detrimental to such businesses can be prevented. The internet must remain true to its open nature.

Datavalet, please reconsider your content restrictions and create an open dialogue with your clients and end users to find a way to overcome this problem. The alternative of course is that this dialogue will take place without your participation, as has begun, which could quite be done without representation of your best interest as well.

Police Agent Provocateurs – a short history

“Police Agent Provocateurs – a short history”

Police Agent Provocateurs, (PAP) have been appearing at public demonstrations with a single intent to cause disturbance and spark violence.

The video below, “Police Agent Provocateurs – a short history” shows police agent provocateurs being caught out at different demonstrations.

 

Firstly in Montebello, Quebec. 20 th August 2007. Peaceful protestors quell a group of what is later admittedly police agent provocateurs. They try to disrupt the  Stop the SSP picket line, however they are thwarted and make the admission that they are in fact Police.

Second is from the University of Pittsburgh 26 th September 2011. A non-vioent protest against police brutality is interrupted by the “exposing” of a number of under cover police who jostle the crowd, which is made up mostly of young women and men.

The #OccupyRome protests were also proven to have PAP’s (Police Agent Provocateurs) working in amongst the crowd and in this picture it can be clearly seen the ‘arrested’ protestors have the same boots as their ‘arresting’ police counterparts.

 

Finally from Canada another example of PAP’s as clearly seen , men dressed in hooded jackets , all black apparel, are quiet obviusly let in through the police line as it closes.

 

 

 

If you present at an Occupy just take a look at the person next to you, it could be a cop.

Occupy Wall Street – American call to Action

In Al Jazeera NEWSHOUR, Anonymous, News, NWO, OccupyWallStreet, Wall Street, WikiLeaks, World Revolution on September 18, 2011 at 10:47 PM

Occupy Wall Street

This statement is ours, and for anyone who will get behind it. Representing ourselves, we bring this call for revolution.

We want freedom for all, without regards for identity, because we are all people, and because no other reason should be needed. However, this freedom has been largely taken from the people, and slowly made to trickle down, whenever we get angry.

Money, it has been said, has taken over politics. In truth, we say, money has always been part of the capitalist political system. A system based on the existence of have and have nots, where inequality is inherent to the system, will inevitably lead to a situation where the haves find a way to rule, whether by the sword or by the dollar.

We agree that we need to see election reform. However, the election reform proposed ignores the causes which allowed such a system to happen. Some will readily blame the federal reserve, but the political system has been beholden to political machinations of the wealthy well before its founding.

We need to address the core facts: these corporations, even if they were unable to compete in the electoral arena, would still remain control of society. They would retain economic control, which would allow them to retain political control. Term limits would, again, not solve this, as many in the political class already leave politics to find themselves as part of the corporate elites.

We need to retake the freedom that has been stolen from the people, altogether.

If you agree that freedom is the right to communicate, to live, to be, to go, to love, to do what you will without  imposing on others, then you might be one of us.

If you agree that a person is entitled to the sweat of their brows, that being talented at management should not entitle others to act like overseers and overlords, that all workers should have the right to engage in decisions, democratically, then you might be one of us.

If you agree that freedom for some is not the same as freedom for all, and that freedom for all is the only true freedom, then you might be one of us.

If you agree that power is not right, that life trumps property, then you might be one of us.

If you agree that state and corporation are merely two sides of the same oppressive power structure, if you realize how media distorts things to preserve it, how it pits the people against the people to remain in power, then you might be one of us.

And so we call on people to act

We call for protests to remain active in the cities. Those already there, to grow, to organize, to raise consciousnesses, for those cities where there are no protests, for protests to organize and disrupt the system.

We call for workers to not only strike, but seize their workplaces collectively, and to organize them democratically. We call for students and teachers to act together, to teach democracy, not merely the teachers to the students, but the students to the teachers. To seize the classrooms and free minds together.

We call for the unemployed to volunteer, to learn, to teach, to use what skills they have to support themselves as part of the revolting people as a community.

We call for the organization of people’s assemblies in every city, every public square, every township.

We call for the seizure and use of abandoned buildings, of abandoned land, of every property seized and abandoned by speculators, for the people, for every group that will organize them.
