To (try to) keep the cops at bay

"The shadows belong to us." is a corny-ass way to end a basic-ass list of tips.

from Counter-surveillance resource center

On the one hand: what is possible despite the intensive surveillance and forensic capabilities? On the other hand, what are the gaps where they have not yet succeeded in developing or testing their repressive methods? We fight out of desire and longing, we must want to challenge ourselves and their repression, otherwise there is no point in fighting. The enemy cannot be everywhere all the time. The shadows belong to us.

Burn the State Database

Athens, Greece: Anarchist place (steki) at the Agricultural University : Burn the State Database

The case of the 14 comrades of the occupation of the rectorate of the Polytechnic university does not only concern them, but all the fighting parts inside and outside the faculties. This is because it is an upgrade on the part of the state, in terms of the ways of methods and repression.

Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

From Puget Sound Anarchists

Puget Sound Prisoner Support (PSPS) is an anti-repression collective
 based in Seattle. For 5+ years we have provided jail and legal support for 
people who have been arrested at protests and demonstrations. We walk people through 
the legal procedure of arrest, court proceedings, bail if necessary, 
getting in touch with a lawyer also if necessary, and in general help 
people understand a confusing legal system. We do not provide legal
 support for people who get arrested for civil disobedience; rather, we
 provide an “emergency service” for when participants of a protest or
 demonstration get arrested. We offer a safety net for people to land in 
when the unexpected happens and things go wrong. We’ve supported friends
 and strangers alike, bailed people out, showed up at court proceedings 
throughout trials, and helped with fundraising to cover legal costs. Our 
major caveat is that we do not offer support to anyone who would
 endanger our communities by way of cooperating with the police, the
 courts or any other governing agency. No snitching, plain and simple.

The Truth About Cambridge Analytica

From Transmetropolitan Review

We live in a small world, for sure, but clearly most people living in it are having a hard time telling the difference between what’s the truth and what’s a lie. Lies are the norm in capitalist society, each of them carefully calibrated to keep people stuck in the economy, the state, and the nation. Lies help people convince themselves that everything’s alright, their life is meaningful, they’re not a slave, and all the endless sacrifices are worth it in the end.

New research focus : the surveillance industry

New research focus : the surveillance industry

From Ears and Eyes

When cops decide to spy on us using surveillance devices such as hidden microphones and cameras or GPS trackers, they need to get the devices from somewhere. It seems that they often buy these devices from private companies. The companies that manufacture and market those devices are part of what we call the surveillance industry.
