An answer to a reddit-comment by tedemang to the article 1540 Anonymous vs. TrapWire: "We must, at all costs, shut this system down and render it useless".
Do you think, joining anonymous really helps there? That’s fleeting power, but I don’t see alternative structures being set up. This just exposes all those who want to support the cause. In front of cameras, connected to a surveillance system which records every action…
On the short term to keep secure digital communication, use freenet over your existing internet connection. If possible in darknet-mode, connecting only to your friends → freesocial.draketo.de
On the mid-term get a flourishing local community in your neighborhood, ideally with community operated internet like a meshnet - and get someone from your community elected as mayor → /r/darknetplan
And make sure you all have access to alternative media sources. Maybe provide printed copies of good blog posts to your local baker.
On the somewhat longer term, fix the democratic system, so the rich ones cannot completely rig the votes by deciding whom they give their money, so he can run for election.
On the long term, fix the economic system, so we don’t automatically get that huge imbalance in power, once the system runs without major disruption for more than 20-30 years.
Remember that what you are going up against is the very instrument the oppressive elements of our state want to use to oppress us. That instrument will monitor you, and they will try to use that data to oppress you - and to cast you in a bad light, so they can convince your neighbors that they need more cameras against those vandalizing youths (without telling them that those youths are the same ones who come over for coffee during the next summer-festival).
The European Copyright directive threatens online communication in Europe.
But thanks to massive shared action earlier this year, the European parliament can still prevent the problems. For each of the articles there are proposals which fix them. The parliamentarians (MEPs) just have to vote for them. And since they are under massive pressure from large media companies, that went as far as defaming those who took action as fake people, the MEPs need to hear your voice to know that your are real.
If you care about the future of the Internet in the EU, please Call your MEPs.
