Alternative Websites And Forums Under Attack
The FBI has recently sent two subpoenas to the website administrator of the flag.blackened.net webserver. Recently there have been rumours circulating in anarchist circles the flag's webmaster had been contacted by the FBI, he has released this press release to notify the wider activist community on what has been going on. The Flag server hosts many of anarchism's most widely viewed websites and the removal of this sever would be a major blow to anarchist organising worldwide.
He has been ordered on two separate occasions to submit IP information of people using certain subdomains hosted on the flag server one of which was the popular Infoshop News. These relate to people claiming responsibility for "propaganda by the deed". The moderator believes at least one of these cases are by people trying to make the flag server "vulnerable to government intrusion".
The FBI in recent years, has gone after a number
of radical/revolutionary left wing websites, most notably are the shutting
down of the raise the fist website and subsequent jailing of it's webmaster
Sherman Austin and also targeting many websites on the Indymedia network.
