STAND UP FOR THE FREEDOM TO EXCHANGE INFORMATION!
We the monitored have decided to stand up against the very real,
very intrusive, and ultimately oppressive global surveillance system
known as Echelon. Echelon is a vast mainframe set up by the New
World Disorder in order to monitor the world's electronic
communications for subversive keywords. Every time you send
someone an email with keywords like "revolution" and "hacktivism"
[for instance], Echelon's computers make a note of it. If you
forward emails with regularity with words on Echelon's
extensive keyword list, you may be marked for human "hands-on"
On October 21, 1999 , netizens around the globe are implored to
send out at least one email with at least 50 keyword words. You
need not be privy to knowing exactly what words Echelon uses. It
is safe to assume that words such as "revolution" and "manifesto"
and "revolt" [etc.] will work.
Just be sure to sound as subversive as possible. There isn't even
any need to write a cohesive paragraph or sentence. Echelon's
computers does not understand the language anyway. It only
knows to look for certain words.
By doing this we can at least temporarily jam the global surveillance
This day of action will be timed to preceed Stop Police Brutality
Day by one day so that emails about actions can be sent out with
little scrutiny due to what will already be an enormous workload for
Now is a chance for anyone, regardless of computer expertise, to
become an instant hacktivist - best of all, no software is needed
[other than your regular email program].
Of course, feel free to conduct such subversiveness any time. The
larger Echelon's workload, the more free our speech.
After October 1, we ask global netizens to merely stop censoring
themselves for fear of spooky scrutiny. By merely deciding to
speak in the spirit of unabashedly subverting the DOMINANCE
paradigm, we will make it quite difficult for Echelon to do its job.
