CATASTROIKA Privatization goes public (Documentary)

The creators of Debtocracy, a documentary with two million views broadcasted from Japan to Latin America, analyze the shifting of state assets to private hands. They travel round the world gathering data on privatization in developed countries and search for clues on the day after Greece's massive privatization program.

The documentary uncovers the forthcoming results of the current sell-off of the Greek public assets, demanded in order to face the country’s enormous sovereign debt. Turning to the examples of London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow and Rome, CATASTROIKA predicts what will happen, if the model imposed in these areas is imported in a country under international financial tutelage.

CATASTROIKA: Privatization goes public

Slavoj Zizek, Naomi Klein, Luis Sepulveda, Ken Loach and Greg Palast talk about the austerity measures, the Greek government as well as the attack against Democracy on Europe, after the general spreading of the financial crisis. Academics and specialists like Dani Rodrik, Alex Callinicos, Ben Fine, Costas Douzinas, Dean Baker and Aditya Chakrabortty present unknown aspects of the privatization programs in Greece and abroad.

Just like Debtocracy, CATASTROIKA is co-produced by the public, which contributed both financially and with ideas to its creation. The documentary will be available free of charge, under creative commons license. High-resolution files will be available for TV and cinema broadcasts in various languages.

The journalists Aris Chatzistefanou and Katerina Kitidi are responsible for writing and directing the documentary, while Leonidas Vatikiotis undertook its scientific editing. Active Member and Ermis Georgiadis created the soundtrack of CATASTROIKA, while the editing was made by Aris Triantafyllou. Infowar Productions and Thanos Tsantas are responsible for producing the film. For more information, please visit www.catastroika.com.

THINK while it's still legal!

I'm trying to free your mind. But I can only show you the door.
You're the one that has to walk through it...

“FREETHINKERS are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking.” ―Leo Tolstoy

“I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables—slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war . . . our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.” —Tyler Durden, FIGHT CLUB, 1999

Gregg Braden - The Divine Matrix: Bridging Time, Space, Miracles & Belief

Gregg Braden discusses the Holographic Nature of the Universe and how everything we do affects the collective consciousness of us all.

“If you wish to understand the Universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration.” -Nikola Tesla
Human Chakra System - Tesla Coil Function - Tesla Waves - Earth Magnetosphere
Human Chakra System - Tesla Coil Function - Tesla Waves - Earth MagnetosphereRecent discoveries show dramatic evidence that The Divine Matrix is the missing link in our understanding.

In order to tap from the force of this matrix, we must first understand how it works and speak the language that it recognizes.

Gregg Braden reveals how to explore and discover the miracles of the Quantum world.

It is in this place of pure energy — a 'Quantum Field' — where everything begins, from the birth of stars and the DNA of life, to our deepest relationships and healing.

New discoveries suggest that our world is a reflection of our beliefs. Everything is now believed to be overturned. The power to create joy, to heal our woes and find peace in our nation is inside

The miracles we see in the Quantum world, show us the scientific limitations or the great potential we have? Could the spontaneous cure of diseases, instantly with everyone and everything, even time travel be our true purpose in the universe?

A series of subversive experiments between 1993 and 2000, revealed a network of energy that connects everything in our lives and our world. It is called Divine Matrix or Quantum Hologram or The "Field" or Nature's Mind or Stephen Hawking's talking as the Mind of God,Max Planck's talking as The Matrix (The name of the movie comes from).

Miraculous removal of an inoperable malignant tumour in the patient's
bladder using the power of belief.

From the healing of our body to the success at work and our relationships and peace, new evidence shows that all of us can talk directly to the power that connects the entire universe. Let's follow Gregg Braden in this wonderful journey that combines science, spirituality and miracles through the language of the Divine Matrix.

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know it exists.” -Nikola Tesla

Anonymous targets CISPA Supporters: Facebook, Microsoft, Intel, IBM, U.S. Telecom, TechAmerica

Anonymous is currently conducting a two-stage attack on businesses and advocacy groups supporting the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). Two technology trade associations said they were targeted by the hacker-activist group Anonymous as it singled out supporters of proposed legislation to improve U.S. cyber-security.

Anonymous Attacks USTelecom, TechAmerica, Facebook, Intel, CIA, MI6, Department of Justice, AT&T Verizon, CenturyLink, IBM, Microsoft, Apple - Response to CISPA

The hacker group Anonymous claimed responsibility for taking down the websites of USTelecom and Tech America, which both back the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011. Both sites remained unreachable as of Monday afternoon.

The attacks began yesterday when users were unable to log onto the sites. USTelecom represents telecom companies, including AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink; and TechAmerica's members include tech companies such as IBM, Microsoft, and Apple.

A Twitter account called @Anon_Central yesterday called the Rogers bill “draconian” and posted a link to groups and companies supporting the legislation.

Anonymous posted a YouTube video showing US Telecom's site down Sunday, and the site was down for about 24 hours, according to a USTelecom spokesman. Anonymous on Friday released a YouTube video threatening supporters of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, a bill focused on encouraging U.S. government agencies and private businesses to trade information about cyber-attacks.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011 (CISPA), sponsored by Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.), has recently caught the attention of online activists, who are comparing it to the now-shelved Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

Lawmakers say the goal of CISPA is to help companies beef up their defenses against hackers who steal business secrets, rob customer financial information and wreak havoc on computer systems.

The bill would tear down legal barriers that discourage companies from sharing information about cyberattacks. But privacy advocates warn the legislation could lead companies to share private user information with federal spy agencies. The House is expected to vote on the cybersecurity measure on the week of April 23.

Hacker group Anonymous also claimed to have taken down the CIA website for the second time in two months following a new DDoS attack on the U.S. secret service which lasted 45 minutes. Anonymous is reportedly on a DDoS rampage today, downing the CIA, Department of Justice, and two MI6 websites.

Members of the group claimed responsibility throughout Facebook and Twitter. Brazilian hacktivist Havittaja reportedly launched the initial offensive on the DoJ and CIA for “lulz” while other members jumped on board a short time later.

The technique also known as a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack, is a concentrated effort by multiple individuals to make a network busy to its intended users. The end result is server overload. Anonymous makes a freeware tool available to its members to carry out these attacks, which it calls the Low Orbit Ion Cannon.

The collective targeted the department of justice in January as part of Operation Megaupload, in a retaliatory attack against the US government's decision to close the popular file-sharing site.

Cispa Supporters - List of Companies - Corporations - Data Leakers
As the campaign against the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) heats up, it's important for the opposition movement to understand just how many companies directly or indirectly support the legislation (i.e. through a trade group).

Starting on Monday, a variety of organizations, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Democracy and Technology, The Constitution Project, Demand Progress, Engine Advocacy, Fight for the Future, Free Press, Reporters Without Borders, Techdirt, and TechFreedom plan to launch a “week of action” campaign against CISPA, a bill they believe remains dangerously broad in its language, which could result in abuse by the government, and damages to our civil liberties.

While many are comparing CISPA to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the two bills are entirely different for a number of reasons.

First, CISPA is a cybersecurity bill that pertains to the sharing of information between the government and private companies. SOPA was an anti-piracy bill that sought to block access to “foreign rogue” websites that illegally distributed copyrighted material.

Second, SOPA was opposed by many of the technology and Internet industry’s biggest players. CISPA, on the other hand, effectively has the support of hundreds of technology and Internet companies — a key difference that could drastically affect whether the anti-CISPA crowd can successfully block passage of the bill.

To give you a full picture of just how much political firepower the CISPA has in Congress, we’ve listed most, if not all, of the companies and organizations that have voiced either direct support for CISPA (by writing a letter, or otherwise expressing support for this specific bill), or indirect support through the direct support of a trade group.

The organizations or companies listed in bold have voiced direct support. Those companies not in bold have not necessarily given direct support (though quite a few have), but have supported the bill through the trade group, which is listed in bold.

The links go to the .pdf files of the letters the company sent to the House Intelligence Committee to express their support of CISPA. As you can see, the list of CISPA supporters is massive, and should give anyone who thinks this will be an easy political fight a dose of reality. Not that CISPA can’t be stopped but, well, scroll down and you’ll see what we mean.

CISPA Explained by Anonymous. Sign the Petition to STOP CISPA!

Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protect Act already gained over 100 sponsors and is perhaps the worst of them all. It would allow companies to collect and monitor private communications and share them with the government and anyone else.

Groups of hacktivist like Anonymous are the actual news of the global technology landscape. As repeatedly stressed I consider the moment of confrontation with the group a moment of growth for the IT professional in many ways, on all:

Having to deal with the cyber threat that requires us much thought in terms of technology with respect to the real security of the systems that surround us and exploitable vulnerabilities to offend. Attention often pose on delicate events suffocated by the interests of greedy governments and multinational.

Obviously we are talking about a group of hackers defined by some recent reports as the most dangerous phenomena cyber-criminals in recent years, underestimate it or being overcome by emotional and ideological transport is extremely dangerous. The group follows a strategy, a trend that I consider interesting to analyze without ideological preconceptions, provided a cue of interest in the current IT scenario.

How many people know the common censorship project of Chinese Government? How many of us knew of the attempt of many Western governments as the UK to implement a monitoring and control on computer to prevent cyber terrorism?

The exploits of the team have a devastating media coverage, they are able to involve critical masses and to win the sympathies of many professionals for their ability to deal with issues otherwise intentionally concealed.

Exceptionally interesting is the theme discussed by the group in recent weeks, in fact, the hackers have conducted a series of attacks and have promised new states against those governments guilty of extremely stringent political control and censorship.

If you download and distribute copyrighted material on the Internet, or share any information that governments or corporations find inconvenient, you could soon be labeled a threat to national security in the United States. That’s the aim of a bill in Congress called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).

The good news is that SOPA and PIPA haven’t come to pass, but the bad news is that they could be followed by a bill that is even more invasive and could violate even more of your civil liberties. According to a press release issued last week, the bill already has over a 100 congressional co-sponsors. Yet the bill is only now beginning to appear on the public radar.

CISPA would let companies spy on users and share private information with the federal government and other companies with near-total immunity from civil and criminal liability. It effectively creates a ‘cybersecurity’ exemption to all existing laws. CISPA, however, is nothing like SOPA, despite its recent association in the media.

While SOPA included provisions that would have essentially broken the Internet by allowing the U.S. to delete domains from a central registry system, CISPA does nothing of the sort, and aims more at “cyber threat intelligence” gathering than censorship and piracy prevention.

The bill presents itself as a simple enhancement of America’s cyber-security that would amend the National Security Act to include “cyber threat intelligence” gathering. To those ends, it would tear down the firewall between private corporate networks and the National Security Agency , enabling corporations to share data with the world’s most sophisticated spy apparatus.

While the bill is openly supported by companies like AT&T, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Facebook, Boeing and Intel, ACLU legislative counsel Michelle Richardson cautioned last month that it is not something to be taken up lightly.

The message to Chinese Government

All these years, the Chinese Communist government has subjected its People to unfair laws and unhealthy processes. Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible, today websites are hacked, tomorrow it will be your vile regime that will fall.

So expect us because we do not forgive, never. What you are doing today to your Great People, tomorrow will be inflicted to you. With no mercy. Nothing will stop us, nor your anger nor your weapons. You do not scare us, because you cannot afraid an idea.

Message to Chinese People

Each of you suffers from the tyranny of that regime which knows nothing about you. We are with you. With you here and now. But also tomorrow and the coming days so promising for your freedom. We will never give up. Don’t loose hope, the revolution begins in the heart.

The silence of all other countries highlights the lack of democracy and justice in China. It’s unbearable. We must all fight for your freedom.

Anonymous vs. Britain's Home Office - Operation Trial At Home

As announced during last days Anonymous has launched a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) against several UK government websites. A massive recruiting campaign is started on social media, a call to arm to protest the extradition of U.K. citizens to the United States.

The Operation named “Operation Trial At Home,” fight the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) that could lead to the extradition of three accused criminals by the U.K.’s Home Office, the government department responsible for domestic security.

Anonymous has provided Home Office’s IP address in its announcement to the supporters, Scheduling for April 7 the a DDoS ( with denial-of-service) attacks against the Home Office’s website. During the week I wrote and article on the intent of the famous group of hacktivist and on the possible reasons of the action. The attacks have mainly two motives:
1) To protest against the extradition of Gary McKinnon, Christopher Harold Tappin and Richard O’Dwyer. McKinnon, a Scottish systems administrator, was arrested in 2002 for allegedly hacking into U.S. military and NASA computers in 2001 and 2002 and deleting files and copying data. Tappin, a retired British businessman, is accused by the U.S. government of exporting materials to Iran that can be used to build surface-to-air missiles. The owner of TVShack.net, O’Dwyer has been charged with hosting copyrighted materials on his site; the U.S. Justice Department has been seeking his extradition since last May.

2) Second motive, the most accredited one, is to protest regarding the UK government that and an it controversial legislation that could allow the UK’s electronics intelligence agency GCHQ access in real-time data of , emails, social networks, and Web traffic and phone calls by all UK citizens. Anonymous has decided to attacks the country that is considered the most supervised in the world.
The law is directly linked to the U.S.’ Patriot Act and both have the intent to ensure national security against cyber threats and cyber terrorist acts. Anonymous has always declared to fight against any form of monitoring and control, that is way it is also attacking China and is Golden Shield Project also known as the Great Firewall.

Anonymous has attacked to protest against a “draconian surveillance proposals” bringing down the following UK websites: homeoffice.gov.uk (Home Office), number10.gov.uk (10 Downing Street - British Prime Minister’s Office), and justice.gov.uk (Ministry of Justice).

The website became inaccessible around 21:00 on Saturday, and was up again from 05:00 on Sunday. The technique is always the same, the target server were flooded by an huge quantity of request interrupting the service. According an article published on ZD net Anonymous ", as we saw with the DDoS attacks against the Vatican, the group is perfectly capable of putting in a backdoor to make life easier when it wants to take the site down a second time.
