Latest block on access to our website: 11.21am

Our 87 Honorary Associates include Nobel laureates Philip W. Anderson and the late Sir Harold Kroto; in the past few days, ten notable scholars from around the world have given Declan permission to add their names to the list. Nonetheless, we are currently experiencing Facebook's 17th block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (this is a link to my previous blog post of 9 December). "Glad you compiled this odious record of mistaken blockage. What possesses the site? Surely after multiple postings they must know your content is neither lewd nor extreme," writes Don Collins, President of the International Services Assistance Fund, Washington, DC.

Don often sends us material to publish on our Church and State website. 70% of our hits are from Americans.

Meanwhile, the unprecedented double-barrelled attack on our Church and State website also continues unabated (SiteGround is paid $1,000 per year to host our site and manage the server):

1. Our Facebook likes/shares plugin has been showing zeros to fluctuating degrees on category pages throughout the site since 19 August (the first article here has 499,100 recommends and 632 comments; it can be viewed here):

2. I have been blogging non-access to the site since 26 July with all sorts of graphics:

RE: Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

Paragraph 12 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

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. President of the London-based Privacy International Simon Davies: "If spying on human rights NGOs isn't off limits for GCHQ, then what is?"

From a fascinating excerpt from Glenn Greenwald's book "No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State":

All of the evidence highlights the implicit bargain that is offered to citizens: pose no challenge and you have nothing to worry about. Mind your own business, and support or at least tolerate what we do, and you'll be fine. Put differently, you must refrain from provoking the authority that wields surveillance powers if you wish to be deemed free of wrongdoing.
