- Dear citizens of the world....
- We are anonymous....
- Our digital privacy principles....
- We demand that:
- Al information about individual citizens should be their own private property, while all information about governments and corporations should be public property.
- We should not be required to disclose information about ourselves unless there is prior public consent that the public interest in disclosing this specific information outweighs our right to privacy; while governments and corporations be required to disclose all information particular to themselves, unless there is public agreement that the public interest in withholding this specific information outweighs our right to see it.
- Each fact which we are required to reveal about ourselves should only be provided to the specific public body that requires this information; while each fact that governments and corporations are required to reveal should be made available to us all.
- No public body should pass information about any person to any other public body without that person's prior informed consent; while no authorisation is required to exchange information about governments and corporations.
- All information about individual citizens should be destroyed when it is no longer required; while all information about governments and corporations should be retained indefinitely in public records.
- And to the WCIT for passing the worst DPI standards....
- The telecommunications standards arm of the U.N. has quietly endorsed the standardization of technologies that could give governments and companies the ability to sift through all of an Internet user's traffic -- including emails, banking transactions, and voice calls -- without adequate privacy safeguards. The move suggests that some governments hope for a world where even encrypted communications may not be safe from prying eyes.
- The ITU-T DPI standard holds very little in reserve when it comes to privacy invasion. For example, the document optionally requires DPI systems to support inspection of encrypted traffic "in case of a local availability of the used encryption key(s)." It's not entirely clear under what circumstances ISPs might have access to such keys, but in any event the very notion of decrypting the users' traffic (quite possibly against their will) is antithetical to most norms, policies, and laws concerning privacy of communications.
- This apparent indifference to the wider implications of its work is yet another reason why the ITU is unfit to determine any aspect of something with as much power to affect people's lives as the Internet.
- The internet is a self governing place where all of its community members take part in its principles. Don't mess with the net. We like what we have. Our internet is working perfectly as an free and open model. It is your old systems that dont work correctly. We cannot allow idiots to destroy our internet.
- We wholly reject any agreements made at a meeting behind closed doors by politicians and others who don't even understand the internet.
- We wholly reject the DPI standards this body passed with out the consent of the people, and any other agreements made by this body. We reject the meeting itself and will not abide by its so-called agreements.
- ITU: Fuck off
- Governants: Fuck off
- Corporations: Fuck off
- WCIT: Fuck off
- we are the internet
- we are anonymous
- we are here to help you with your revolution
- join us
