The government is watching. No matter who you are, the NSA is intercepting and storing all of your electronic communications. Phone calls, emails, txts, web browsing, and more.

Hackers and privacy activists have warned about this for years, but the NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden are forcing all of us to confront the reality: we have no rights on the network.

Don't despair! The government won't grant you privacy, but you can still have it if you're willing to fight for it. In order to fight, you have to learn about the network, about the tools available to you, and how to use them. There's a lot to learn, but with help from each other, we can figure it out.

This is a workshop, not a training - there won't necessarily be one instructor presenting a lesson to everyone else. Instead, we will all help each other learn about, install and use secure communication tools.

How to be "Secure" in the Age of Surveillance

Friends, comrades, Left, whoever,

For so long you those interested in security have been labeled as paranoid or bad anarchists. Look at the sittuation and realize its on everyone's minds. "They" are watching us. From Eric Snowden's whistle blowing to rando liberal democrats - we feel it - a need to be secure. Check out this site. It lists a lot of services you can look into.


Maybe soon there will be a class as well so we can generalize this knowledge.

Be Safe.

In Love and War.

Homeland Security Unit Detective P.B. Jackson at Egypt Solidarity Demo

Video

See video

On February 6th, 2013, Atlanta anarchists held a march and rally in solidarity with anarchists in Egypt. As is to be expected, the Atlanta Police sent out a detective from the department's Homeland Security Unit (HSU) to monitor the demonstration and take pictures of activists.

A man was noticed sitting on a bench, taking photos and video with his cellphone between typing out text messages. Copwatchers approached the conspicuous man and asked for his name and assignement number, which all APD officers are obligated to provide while on duty. He immediately identified himself as Detective P.B. Jackson with the HSU.

331 Officer Price - At a rally against police brutalityOver the past year, Copwatchers have documented the regular presence of plainclothed APD officers filming protests, rallies, and political events in Atlanta. It was quickly determined that these were officers assigned to the APD's Homeland Security Unit (HSU)( http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/homeland-security-caught-monitoring-o...). Earlier this week, the APD's Plan of Action for the Occupy Atlanta protests was released to the public (http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/atlanta-police-departments-occupy-atl...). Almost immediately the report, which is dated October 10th, 2011, tells us that "The Atlanta Police Department Homeland Security Unit has been actively monitoring demonstration planning by the group [...]"
