Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented. Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations and the communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to US intelligence. Facebook, Google, Yahoo– all these major US organizations have built-in interfaces for US intelligence. It’s not a matter of serving a subpoena. They have an interface that they have developed for US intelligence to use. Now, is it the case that Facebook is actually run by US intelligence? No, it’s not like that. It’s simply that US intelligence is able to bring to bear legal and political pressure on them. And it’s costly for them to hand out records one by one, so they have automated the process. Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies in building this database for them.
The man being attacked in this photoset by police is Manolis Glezos, the Greek hero, who during WW2 torn down the Nazi flag
The elderly man being attacked by an Athens (Greece) cop in this photo is not a member of the black bloc or a nobody. It is Manolis Glezos, the Greek national hero who, on the 30th of May 1941 tore down the swastika flag from the Acropolis, an act for which he suffered torture and imprisonment. It was the first public act of the Resistance in Greece, only a month after the Nazi take-over.
Who would have dreamed that seventy years later, a dirty coward wearing a uniform serving the capitalists that do not even deserve to wipe the soles of his feet has the gall to touch/assault him?
this makes me sick.
animal rights = earth rights = online rights = labour rights = HUMAN rights
To a right-winger, unions are awful. Why do right-wingers hate unions? Because collective bargaining is the power that a worker has against the corporation. Right-wingers hate that.
