All three of our laptops are targeted in an unprecedented attack: I have to use the deep web Tor Browser to post on Facebook (VIDEO)

Never before have all three of our laptops been targeted on Facebook in the same way at the same time. At first I thought I was experiencing a Facebook glitch: a sidebar would quickly appear and disappear, freezing whatever Facebook page I was on. But I kept seeing friends' notifications and began to wonder if our IP address had been isolated. Sure enough, this is also happening on all three of our laptops and no matter whether we use the Firefox or Chrome browser. As the video below shows, I can't even post a message on my own wall. It is only when I open Facebook on the deep web Tor browser, which conceals the user's identity, that everything on Facebook functions properly.

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?"

We consider this three-laptop attack tonight every bit as outrageous as the removal of our flat door in 2012. (See also an attack I experienced last December that temporarily rendered my laptop useless for work.)
