Following my previous Newham Council blog post, this N4CM blog has been decimated (WITH UPDATE)


UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

I have not lost all of my images, but I might as well have given the few that remain on this blog. I have even lost the image for my disclaimer on the upper right-hand column. This morning I have written to TinyPic, which hosts most if not all of these images:

20 July 2016

Dear TinyPic,

I can't access TinyPic on any of my computers and all the images that I have on my blog are not appearing either.

At first I thought that your website was under attack, but when I opened it on the Tor browser, there you were! I was even able to login and see all my images.

This is a screenshot of what my browsers get when I try to access your site: http://prntscr.com/bv6ezk

This is a screenshot of the Tor browser showing everything is normal from another IP address: http://prntscr.com/bv6h82

And this is a screenshot showing my decimated blog: http://prntscr.com/bv6hhn

Please can you resolve this situation.

Sincerely,

Lola Heavey

Update 20 July 2016 (1.49pm): I have not received a reply from TinyPic, but the images are back.

HEAVEY v. THE UNITED KINGDOM

COMMUNICATION SUBMITTED FOR CONSIDERATION UNDER THE FIRST OPTIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS

Paragraph 12 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations re the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

12. It is important to underscore that the discriminatory surveillance suffered by the Applicant and his wife is not an isolated event. Rather, it is emblematic of a larger pattern of surveillance by law enforcement officials in the UK that has been well-documented by international and domestic human rights bodies. For example, GCHQ's Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) specialises in the "4 D's": deny, disrupt, degrade, deceive. It has been branded by the press as the spy agency's "deception unit". Though its existence was secret until 2014, JTRIG has developed a distinctive profile in the public understanding, after documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the unit had engaged in "dirty tricks" like deploying sexual "honey traps" designed to discredit targets, launching denial-of-service attacks to shut down Internet chat rooms, pushing veiled propaganda onto social networks and generally warping discourse online. Previous reporting on GCHQ established its focus on what it regards as political radicalism. Beyond JTRIG's targeting of Anonymous, other parts of GCHQ targeted political activists and groups deemed to be "radical", even monitoring human rights NGOs. Simon Davies, president of the London-based Privacy International, asks: "If spying on human rights NGOs isn't off limits for GCHQ, then what is?"
