11-10-01 Occupy Wall Street, days 13-15 (September 29 – October 1) – US-UK media split!

  • UK media – BBC and the Guardian – report on the Wall Street unrest, growing numbers of participants, additional locations, protestors amass on the NYPD headquarters…
  • US media focus on unrest in “democracies everywhere,” but fail to mention the unrest in the United States… Fear of US information repression spurs efforts for establishing alternative internet communications…
  • In Israel, tenuous relationship between media and tycoons (bankers and others) has been repeatedly documented in recent decades as well… 
  • Authenticated People’s communications would be discussed in the upcoming Jerusalem 2012 celebration, as essential tool in monitoring government conduct.

One should recall the New York Times editorial on Christmas day, 2010, where it disclosed that it intended to be biased in reporting on the US banking system, out of intimidation. [1]

That NYT editorial was particularly pathetic, coming in the wake of the federal 2010 “Freedom of the Press Act”… [2]

Eben Moglen, a law professor at Columbia U., is developing the Freedom Box, a personal server that makes data harder to intercept. “The Net we have is increasingly monitored, measured, and surveilled everywhere by everybody all the time,” he says. “Our Net has been turned against us.”

By Jeffrey R. Young

Computer networks proved their organizing power during the recent uprisings in the Middle East, in which Facebook pages amplified street protests that toppled dictators. But those same networks showed their weaknesses as well, such as when the Egyptian government walled off most of its citizens from the Internet in an attempt to silence protesters.
That has led scholars and activists increasingly to consider the Internet’s wiring as a disputed political frontier.
