Following my previous Facebook blog post, this N4CM blog has been decimated and I have no access to the TinyPic website


UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)



I have not lost all of my images on this blog, but I might as well have, given the few that remain. TinyPic hosts most if not all of these images. I have also been denied access to their website, so this afternoon I emailed them instead:

23 September 2016

Dear TinyPic,

I cannot access the TinyPic website on any of my three laptops and most of the images that I have on my blog are not appearing either.

When I go to http://tinypic.com/ all I get is "Error 503 Service Unavailable". This is a screenshot of what my browsers get when I try to access your site: http://prntscr.com/clh5tq

And this is a screenshot showing my decimated blog: http://prntscr.com/clh8n3

Please can you resolve this situation.

Sincerely,

Lola Heavey

Update 23 September 2016 (7.27pm): 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?"
