Der Chaos Computer Club (CCC) veröffentlicht heute den Call for
“Goodnight America. Wherever you are.”
Faced with the dire crisis, the C.I.A. has proposed Operation: Keep Fear Alive, under which desperately poor, homeless, and angry Muslims can volunteer to be drone strike victims. Each one must film a video during which they vow to behead Americans, shout “Allah akbar,” and agree to be easy targets. The family of each deceased will receive $75,000 dollars, an all-expense paid trip to Disney World and a private audience with Mickey Mouse.
“Sicherlich hast Du Recht, sagte ich zu ihm, die Welt ist eine Welt von
Mördern, aber ich will die Welt trotzdem nicht als eine Welt von Mördern
sehen, ich will die Welt als einen Ort sehen, an dem man leben kann.”
– Imre Kertész
Wolfgang Neskovics, former judge at the German Federal High Court of Justice, released the translation of the CIA report on torture and his analysis, demanding to prosecute and imprison former US statesmen, such as George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, George Tenet and Donald Rumsfeld:
“Criminal prosecution is not only possible, but essential and inevitable.”
“The decision on a possible prosecution is a practical probation-test for the truthfulness and functioning of our legal system.”
Chaos Computer Club supports Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden

Since its founding more than thirty years ago, the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) holds strong beliefs in the freedom of information. Consequentially, freedom fighters and whistleblowers deserve our utmost respect and support. For this reason we will help the European legal team of Edward Snowden financially.
Asylum, legal counsel and protection are costly. This is why we decided to support Snowden’s six European lawyers with 36.000 Euro to cover their expenses. Earlier this year, the CCC general assembly also decided to offer Edward Snowden the honorary membership, which he accepted gladly.
“The long lasting dedication of the CCC and others for citizen’s rights and against mass surveillance paved the road for a broad public debate after Edward Snowden’s revelations”, said Snowden’s German lawyer, Wolfgang Kaleck. “Both the commitment as well as the support for Snowden require perseverance. The financial support provided will help sustain these efforts.”
Edward Snowden is the source of many leaks about the so-called Intelligence Community and their hacking and surveillance operations, which made news headlines all over the world. He ignited the necessary global discussion by informing journalists about how much and how deeply we are being spied on by the NSA and their partners, how they infiltrate telecommunication and Internet service providers. One of our central claims and part of our hacker ethics is: “Public data should be utilized, private data should be protected.” Edward Snowden had the guts to live by our principles.
Undoubtedly, Chelsea Manning’s courageous actions also stand in line with these values of ours. To express our support and respect, the CCC bi-annual general assembly unanimously voted for offering her the honorary membership. She agreed to accept our offer. Needless to say, it is an outstanding honor for us to count Chelsea Manning as one of us!
The former US private Chelsea Manning, stationed in Iraq in 2009 and 2010, was sentenced for violations of the Espionage Act and other offences in August 2013. Allegedly, she transferred hundreds of thousands of military and U.S. State Department documents and the infamous “collateral murder” video to Wikileaks. Detained as a political prisoner in 2010 under unduly harsh conditions without minimal standards of humane treatment and stripped of her clothing in custody every night, Manning is now serving a 35-year sentence for her courageous acts.

The international experts who supported the Necessary and Proportionate Principles has issued a press release containing quotes from professionals weighing in on the need to end the mass surveillance.
Google gets patent for ‘heart’ shaped gesture, and I wonder if they also got the patent for The finger gesture since we all know, not everything that we’re not marking as ‘liked’ (as intendet by the like gesture) we also don’t like. In this world of friendface’s and google’s likes, I really getting the urge to stand against, to hate and be disgusted about stuff.
We needn’t discuss the fact that the United States represents the top delinquent against international law and human rights from their foundation until today. They have proven their pole position and rank of global criminal warlord repeatedly and sustainably…
The U.S. administration has yet understood that their strategies regarding criminal prosecution has its legal limitations when it comes to international law and, – therefore, – are introducing a orchestrated situation, confronting the global sovereign states with the dictation of their political agenda, where international criminal prosecution and law now is at stake. The unlawful head-hunt of Osama Bin Laden and his fellows brought them to a momentum where a paradigm shift is needed to continue prosecuting their “enemies” on an international level. Therefore they release a made-up “worst case” scenario with a puppet named Snowden to introduce a paradigm shift in international criminal prosecution.
The criminals used to be those who spied on their citizen, where after nowadays those are declared criminals who protect themselves from being spied on…
As long as the last 4 presidents of the United States are not being impeached for crimes on humankind in an international human rights court, the international laws on criminal prosecution can be declared obsolete!
