WEB SPIES MONITOR ACTIVISTS ONLINE


www.news.com.au

A PRIVATE intelligence company has been engaged by police to secretly monitor internet and email use by activist and protest groups, a report says.

The company was hired to monitor and report on the internet activities of anti-war campaigners, animal rights activists, environmental campaigners, and other protest groups, Fairfax Media reported.

It was hired by Victorian Police, the Australian Federal Police and the federal Attorney-General's department.

I guess this means us?.........We know they are out there watching us, And I just wonder how long it will be before they shut down sites like us?........Big brother is out there and he doesn't like what he sees........We may not stop this agenda, but maybe we can slow it down.

It says that they want to secretly monitor.........Yeah!, so that you can't catch them in there act.What do you think of this ordeal, just the same ole junk they have been doing anyway, or are they delving deeper to shut these voices down?

Yeah they are collecting intelligence.
They are not breaking into pc's etc and monitoring internet traffic at the packet level.
They are just profiling from websites chat rooms etc.
In reality, as long as you keep it private, anyone is allowed to profile whoever they want and keep there own private records on it.
Not that im saying I agree with it.
I think its disgusting.
But its not really illegal.

Good find. Flagged it.
I'm sure most people here realize that the Government is doing this. At least it is going MainStream. I have often speculated amongst my friends that if I were to fly overseas tomorrow, I would be tagged as a "person of interest"... I'm sure most contributors here would.

If this story does go mainstream, it's be denied, then justified, then glorified, then used for something it wasn't originally promised to.....same as everything else. Personally I'd have to ask if we are allowed to profile them under the same guise? I believe we have sufficient evidence to show various government agencies pose threats. let's all pool our resources and hire them to track them? can't be that hard to get their names. Of course, I just thought of it, I'm not actually gonna do anything.......(sssssshhhhhh) lol.

Locking up Jews, Gays and Gypsies in Germany wasn't illegal either. I'm sure I don't have to say what happened next.

Legality is a strange word. Legal and illegal do not equate to right and wrong IMO.

Rant over.

On topic: Remember to watch what you say on-line. I'm sure this is already done in most countries.

Glad this stuff is bubbling up. Of course they use all means to watch in, we just need to be less politically dangerous

Oh I would so much like to save all that tax money being wasted on paying these traitors to a grass roots democracy good incomes at our expense. If they would just publish their address, I would be happy to send them some conspiracy threads and research each day, and try and convert them to the righteous side. They should be getting tons of mail, and letters to the point concerning every topic discussed.
That way our money can be spent serving us and our needs, even wishes, better!

They'd shut us down if they hadn't figured that we couldn't even sort out the next committee meeting. In other words, let's start a thread on the 'revolution,' and none of us would bother. That keeps us safe. They don't need to shut us down because of the proverbial brewery, cellar and piss up.

If they actually try and read all the posts etc. they'll either go insane and quit the job or they'll start believing everything and turn to the dark side

I went over seas just recently but didn't appear to be tagged or anything when leaving the US that was easy. But geesh getting back into the US I went through 2 luggage detectors, customs official, 2 carry on baggage inspectors and then an agriculture baggage inspector.

When I left the US it was 1 baggage detector, 1 carry on detector and just had to fill out a form for agriculture on the plane only talked to 1 customs guy and that was it. They have no problem saying see ya but when you want back in the US dang it's nuts.

I doubt it!

If I/you were them, I/we would just sit, watch, send some e-mails and make a few calls


Why bother biting the hand that feeds you? Why not use the opportunity to gain further valuable knowledge.

Sure, the threads may get closed but chasing away the food source would be rather daft imo.

Am I right Mr
?

Also....even the biggest piece of evidence or proof would have it's skeptics however conclusive it seemed, it won't EVER be one single piece of information to convince everybody at one moment....not HERE anyway.

Things take time and must evolve into a "yes", "no" or usually a "don't know".

Well your probably right...the website wouldnt be shutdown...but the thread would and thread creator wouldn't have a fun time with guys in suites chapping on his door.But like i said...if anyone is expecting ATS sometime in the future to reveal a huge secret from a post...you are kidding yourself.Yes we can all speculate,source here source there...if there was ever anything that completely showed the truth it wouldnt be shown...unless your quick enough to see it before it gets closed.
