Original Title: The Christo-Fascist Police State

A mighty military.
Women in the home.
Abortion and birth control become crimes.
Crosses emblazoned on every public building.
Machine gunners on our borders.
Welfare recipients sterilized.
Being gay made illegal.

If you use Tor, you’ve been targeted by the NSA for long-term surveillance & retention

Tor-Anonymity-Tor-path

by Camille Marino

The NSA says it only banks the communications of “targeted” individuals. Guess what? As animal- and eco-activists,  we are in a special group all of our own that has already been targeted for surveillance and infiltration by the government because we threaten the status quo. So we must pay more attention to our privacy and security in order to fight effectively. And since every computer I owned was seized in a home raid in June 0f 2012, and since I was banned from the internet entirely throughout 2013, I had to become fairly adept at initiating some sophisticated security measures. I have been considering sharing this information with our community, but was uncertain about how much interest there would be in these issues.

bill of rights

by Michael Snyder

On July 4th, the United States will celebrate Independence Day once again. But who in the world are we trying to kid? Our founders intended to create a society where freedom and liberty would be maximized, but that is not what America looks like today. Instead, we live in a country that literally has millions of laws, rules and regulations. We have a government that is obsessed with spying on the entire planet and that tries to watch, monitor, track and record as much information about all of us as it possibly can. A “Big Brother” surveillance grid is being constructed all around us, and our militarized police are becoming more brutal with each passing day.

Sadly, most Americans don’t seem too alarmed by any of this.  In fact, a new Gallup survey has found that 79 percent of Americans are “satisfied” with the level of freedom in this nation.  That is a very alarming statistic.

criminalizing dissent

by Julie Beal

Well, guys, the time is now, cos they’re grabbing us by the short and curlies, and trying to take down us activists; they’re coming at us from all sides now. This is the Quickening. From threats to regulate the press, to Internet censorship, the powers-that-be are finding many ways to control dissent. The Internet is being militarized, laws are being worked over, and political activists are the next target.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Sections 1021 and 1022, authorizes the indefinite military detention, without charge or trial, of any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Law of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield.

“If you don’t fight, you’ve already lost”: Debbie Vincent jailed for 6 yrs Remains Defiant

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

On Tuesday, Debbie Vincent, an animal rights activist from the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign was sentenced to six years in prison for conspiracy to blackmail after a five week long trial at Winchester Crown Court. She was also given an Anti Social Behaviour Order which means she can be arrested if she protests against or contacts Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) or its business partners for a further five years after her release from prison.

The sentence should serve as a wake up call to anti-capitalists of the need to offer solidarity to those who have been singled out for repression because of their involvement in effective resistance to corporate power.

A press release from the Blackmail 3 support campaign quotes Debbie: “I have been made an example of because I put myself up as a public face of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty and for believing that such places as Huntingdon Life Sciences should be resigned to the history books.” “In some ways I’m really not surprised I was found guilty, as I don’t believe anyone can get justice when faced with a political conspiracy charge and the huge resources of the state and multinationals against me. I will always have hope and will always continue to try my best to make the inhabitants of this planet more compassionate to all and try to make the world a better place for all.”

On the Past and Future Efficacy of Targeted Hoaxes

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Animalrightsmilitiaby Jan Smitowicz

Imagine, if you will, a woman walks into a library or university computer lab far from her place of residence.1 She wears loose-fitting clothes of a style she doesn’t normally wear, purchased from a thrift store in a city she doesn’t frequent. Maybe she wears sunglasses, a bandana over her scalp; she’s removed her piercings if she has any—in short, this woman disguises her appearance from security cameras. Ones that are becoming more and more common as this culture moves ever closer to a techno-fascist police state. When she walks into the computer lab, she tilts down her head and (more…)

Why Did the FBI Label Ryan Shapiro’s Dissertation on Animal Rights a Threat to National Security?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Source: Democracy Now

Over the past decade, Ryan Shapiro has become a leading freedom of information activist, unearthing tens of thousands of once-secret documents. His work focuses on how the government infiltrates and monitors political movements, in particular those for animal and environmental rights. Today, he has around 700 Freedom of Information Act requests before the FBI, seeking around 350,000 documents. That tenacity has led the Justice Department to call him the “most prolific” requester there is — in one year, two requests per day. It has also led the FBI to claim his dissertation research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology would “irreparably damage national security.” Shapiro discusses his methodology in obtaining government documents through FOIA requests, and the details that have emerged therein about the crackdown on animal rights activists.
