We're all being wiretapped

Silver at Wolfesblog - a comendium of stories about AT&T wiretapping all their customers for the Busheviks. She recommends that if you are one their customers that you cease doing business with them. Good idea. Don't miss Bruce Schneier's AT&T Assisting NSA Surveillance blog entry. [claire]

Other commentary on AT&T wiretapping

It doesn't hurt to mention that just because a credible case has been made that AT&T cooperates with the federal government in snooping on the public doesn't mean companies 2-99 aren't doing the exact same thing.

When it comes to maintaining your own privacy from an overly intrusive government (and crackers), nothing is as effective as actively working to maintain your privacy. (Freedom isn't free, neither is privacy.)

EFF has some suggestions:

or the ultimate in low effort activism, send the EFF money so they can move forward with their lawsuit (and future lawsuits).


Reading a book or two about privacy can't hurt.

Knowledge is power!

torture with ADS and microchip

Please help the victims of the National Institute of Justice's "intelligent surveillance" research. The NIJ is using our taxpayer dollars to violate our constitutional rights, recklessly endanger our lives, and torture us 24/7. Senator Kaine told me that this program funds Newport News Police Department and Virginia state police. Both are required to have a signed informed consent form for each human subject. The NIJ follows the common rule. Citizens need to request the name and contact number for the IRB as well as the grant administrator. We need to ask our senators to defund the NIJ for failure to follow the "common rule" and for violations of our constitutional rights as well as the torture and murder of thousands of innocent citizens. The perps are state and local police. The funding is the NIJ. In addition, cops steal the identity of the victim and use Medicaid to supplement their nonconsensual human subject research. This is a felony. They must allow us to opt out. The NIJ are required by law to pay for our attorney fees, medical expenses, and any change in financial position as well as punitive damages! I now have cancer throughout my body as a direct result of this technology. The NIJ, Newport News Police and Virginia state police are to blame for my cancer and stealing a decade of my life!
