  11.  
  12. Greetings and felicitations.
  13.  
  14. This is Anonymous.
  15.  
  16. Some thoughts on recent events in Thailand that we felt are worth sharing.
  17.  
  18. Freedom of speech is under attack world wide, but some countries are feeling the effects much more
  19. than others.
  20.  
  21. In Thailand it is illegal to criticize the government or military online. Prison sentences will
  22. result. Think about this.
  23.  
  24. The military junta have promised elections in 2017, but who will be left able to offer a commentary
  25. on how Thailand can progress politically if anyone who speaks out against the way the military
  26. conducts themselves in government is threatened or arrested?
  27.  
  28. How can the media provide the Thai people with an impartial view on politics in Thailand if they
  29. are afraid to express opinions unpopular with the junta?
  30.  
  31. Physical protests and demonstrations are banned in Thailand, the internet (for better or worse) is
  32. the obvious outlet for networking dissent now, it must be defended.
  33.  
  34. Make no mistake, these laws governing the internet have little to do with protecting Thailand
  35. from hackers, they are about protecting the government from having to listen to the voice of the
  36. people, they are about putting a stranglehold on dissent.
  37.  
  38. If the Thai military had genuinely been concerned about protecting infrastructure from hackers
  39. they would hire computer security experts to secure their systems, not waste time drafting laws
  40. that victimize innocent citizens.
  41.  
  42. Activists choosing to take actions that are considered to be illegal by the junta must analyze the
  43. risks they are taking and look to minimizing them at each stage. Are you using your personal email
  44. address to discuss illegal activities? Can your personal social media profiles be easily linked to
  45. discussing illegal actions in public forums? Are you using some method of hiding your connection
  46. details, whether proxies, VPNs or tor? Are you using a hacker nickname that can be linked to other
  47. accounts you have, whether YouTube or PSN?
  48.  
  49. Think.
  50.  
  51. The Thai government are not tech savvy, but they are motivated to show that they can arrest anyone
  52. who dares to embarrass them. Do not underestimate their desire to catch you. Do not make it easy
  53. for them.
  54.  
  55. Thai ISPs will cooperate with the government to help track activists, without question. The Thai
  56. government can request that corporations like Facebook turn over user data if it is part of a
  57. criminal investigation.
  58.  
  59. Considering every way that it is necessary to hide your true identity online can seem daunting at
  60. first, but given time and thought it simply becomes habit, though it may have at first have seemed
  61. a complicated contrivance.
  62.  
  63. If you are not confident that you can remain hidden online when taking big risks we urge you to do
  64. more research into how to protect yourself before acting, we must all learn to crawl before we can
  65. learn to run.
  66.  
  67. We read with sadness that 9 alleged hacktivists in Thailand have been arrested, we note with
  68. concern that 8 of them have yet to be turned over to civilian authorities by the military. They
  69. are being held at what Reuters describes as a "military black site". We consider the chances of
  70. fair trials for any of these alleged hackers to be minimal, with the chances of human rights
  71. violations high.
  72.  
  73. There will be many battles, some won, some lost, in this war for your privacy, for the right to
  74. speak your mind without fear, already the Thai government has been forced to address concerns over
  75. this new cyber law. Activists have pushed this struggle for internet freedoms on to the front page
  76. of the Thai newspapers and into the media world wide.
  77.  
  78. The world is watching.
  79.  
  80. Sail safe please Thailand.
  81.  
  82.
