Thought Police Watch: F.B.I. Moves on Indy News Producers

Internet news producers and activists have more reason today to look nervously over their shoulder. Ever-narrowing threat assessment definitions mean, website hosts and bloggers could soon find themselves criminals, waiting to hear the tap-tapping of the law at their door. -{lex}

Anarchist Websites And Forums Under Attack
US: Indy

This Is NOT April Fools 

  The FBI has recently sent two subpoenas to the website administrator of the 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.
