On the day our salaries are renewed for another year, public access to our Church and State website is blocked an unprecedented five times (WITH UPDATE 5/2/2017)

Click to enlarge

I have been blogging public non-access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016 with all sorts of graphics. SiteGround is paid $1,000 per year to host our site and manage the server, but the site continues to be attacked at will nonetheless. Today, the same day we received an email confirming the renewal of our salaries for another year, the site has been attacked an unprecedented five times. What's next? (The graphics below are on US time.)

The last three blocks: 8.51pm, 9.31pm, and 10.07pm (UK time)

UPDATE 5 February (9.18am): I have just updated my blog post of 16 January, The blocks on access to our Church and State website continue unabated (WITH UPDATE 5/2/2017). I updated the blog post with this morning's 143rd block on access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016; yesterday, access to the site was blocked an unprecedented seven times. The blog post also reveals the constant targeting of our category pages since 19 August 2016 (the third article below has 1/2 million social recommends):

Facebook's 19th block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (WITH UPDATE - DAY 4 23/1/2017)

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.

Donald A. Collins, President of ISAF, Washington DC



We are calling this Facebook's 19th block since 1 December 2015 - in the video above they even call it a block themselves. This evening Facebook stopped me from posting to groups without first passing through a time-consuming security check for every post I wish to make, and this for an undisclosed period of time and without any stated reason. Usually they block me from joining and posting to groups. These blocks have been extended seemingly for the fun of it, and to date I have been blocked for up to six days at a time. I only post to groups articles that I have published on our Church and State website. I also only post to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that I am well familiar with; in fact, I am extremely careful on Facebook but it hasn't made a blind bit of difference for over a year now. Facebook did not respond to any of my previous eighteen appeals, so I'm not expecting a response to my appeal tonight. It reads:

For the attention of Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Facebook

20 January 2017

Dear Facebook,

I wish to appeal your decision this evening to stop me from posting to groups without first passing through a time-consuming security check for every post I wish to make (called by Facebook a "block"), and this for an undisclosed period of time and without any stated reason.

I was trying to post Prof. Paul Cliteur's New York Times article "Terror Has Already Led to Self-Restraint" to atheist groups I am well familiar with and actively engage in almost on a daily basis. Prof. Cliteur is Professor of Jurisprudence, Leiden University (the Netherlands) and is one of our Authors.

I have made a video of the security check I must pass through to post to groups; it can be viewed at http://tinypic.com/m/jq5c2p/1. In this video, I am trying to post Prof. Cliteur's article to the closed group, Sam Harris & The Future of Reason, of which I am a member.

This is Facebook's 19th block since 1 December 2015.

1st 1-4 December 2015 (4 days)
2nd 5-7 December 2015 (3 days)
3rd 6-9 January 2016 (4 days)
4th 12-15 January 2016 (4 days)
5th 20-22 January 2016 (3 days)
6th 13-16 February 2016 (4 days)
7th 23-26 March 2016 (4 days)
8th 20-23 May 2016 (4 days)
9th 25-30 May 2016 (6 days)
10th 1-3 July 2016 (3 days)
11th 7-8 September 2016 (2 days)
12th 21-22 September 2016 (3 days)
13th 27-28 September 2016 (2 days)
14th 29 September - 3 October 2016 (5 days)
15th 4-5 October 2016 (2 days)
16th 18-23 October 2016 (6 days)
17th 9-14 December 2016 (6 days)
18th 4-6 January 2017 (3 days)

Facebook has responded to only one of my previous 18 appeals, citing on 14 January "technical problems" in relation to the 18th block listed above. And this notwithstanding that I only ever post to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that I am well familiar with. I also only post to groups articles that I have already published on our Church and State website.

"Surely after multiple postings [Facebook] 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.

Please note that we currently have 90 Honorary Associates, including two Nobel prize winners. Since last October, 63 notable scholars from around the world have given my husband permission to add their names to the list.

Yours faithfully,

Lola Heavey
Webmaster

2 October 2016: Complaint to Facebook Chairman, Chief Executive and Co-Founder Mark Zuckerberg on day 4 of Facebook's 14th block since 1 December 2015

Re: Facebook

Draft paragraph 42 of Declan's next updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

42. On 13 August 2011, then Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone wrote to Facebook on the Applicant's behalf, asking that they explain why the Applicant's wife had been barred. The bar was subsequently lifted; however, since 1 December 2015, Facebook have blocked the Applicant's wife from posting to pages and/or groups on nineteen separate occasions, and up to six days at a time (each of these blocks is well accounted for in the N4CM blog). On 22 December 2015, Shadow Home Office Minister Lyn Brown made an enquiry on the Applicant's behalf to Steve Hatch, the Managing Director of Facebook UK, asking if he could offer an explanation as to the terms and conditions the Applicant's wife was alleged to have broken twice previously. To the best of the Applicant's knowledge, Mr Hatch did not respond to this letter. The Applicant's wife only ever posts to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that she is well familiar with, and she only ever posts articles that she has already published on the Church and State website. Nonetheless, Facebook have responded to only one of the Applicant's wife's nineteen appeals since 1 December 2015, citing "technical problems" on 14 January 2017 in relation to the eighteenth block listed below.

1st 1-4 December 2015 (4 days)
2nd 5-7 December 2015 (3 days)
3rd 6-9 January 2016 (4 days)
4th 12-15 January 2016 (4 days)
5th 20-22 January 2016 (3 days)
6th 13-16 February 2016 (4 days)
7th 23-26 March 2016 (4 days)
8th 20-23 May 2016 (4 days)
9th 25-30 May 2016 (6 days)
10th 1-3 July 2016 (3 days)
11th 7-8 September 2016 (2 days)
12th 21-22 September 2016 (3 days)
13th 27-28 September 2016 (2 days)
14th 29 September - 3 October 2016 (5 days)
15th 4-5 October 2016 (2 days)
16th 18-23 October 2016 (6 days)
17th 9-14 December 2016 (6 days)
18th 4-6 January 2017 (3 days)
19th 20-23 January 2017 (4 days)

DAY 4 UPDATE 23 January (10.35am): It appears this morning that Facebook's 19th block since 1 December 2015 has been lifted; however, we thought at one stage Facebook had lifted their 18th block, only to discover an hour later that it had been reinstated. For now, this 19th block records as a 4-day block. No response to my appeal above. I have just updated my blog post last Monday, The blocks on access to our Church and State website continue unabated (WITH UPDATE 23/1/2017). I updated the blog post with this morning's 117th block on access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016.

Is it St Mungo's intention to harass us all the way to our court hearing against them on 20 February 2017?


County Court at Central London, Royal Courts of Justice

What Civil Procedure rule is this?
In preparation for the hearing of our case I have been informed that it is usually the applicant who takes responsibility for preparing a bundle for the court and for providing the defendant with a copy. This is to ensure that all documents that might be referred to during the hearing are easily available and referenced.

The hearing of our claim against the homeless charity St Mungo's under the Data Protection Act 1998 will take place on 20 February at the County Court at Central London. At the preliminary hearing on 11 October, Declan explained to the Court that had the false, fabricated and nonsensical data St Mungo's produced against us have gone unchallenged, we could have been evicted from our home (a threat to life). On 14 November Declan filed and served a fully narrated witness statement, as directed by the Court. Now St Mungo's want us to prepare a bundle for the court, or they say they could do it for us with our participation, but they have yet to cite the rule in the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 that obliges us to proceed with such a bundle. Perhaps it is St Mungo's intention to harass us all the way to the court hearing. It is our stance that our next bundle in this case will be for the Court of Appeal, if St Mungo's plea for the Court to reject our claim is upheld.

Declan's Witness Statement dated 14 November 2016:


15 November 2016: Will St Mungo's get away with falsifying and fabricating data against us? I'm still waiting for Issuu to let me embed Declan's Witness Statement dated 14 November 2016


***

We were evicted from our previous flat on 14 March 2013 because according to our then live-in landlady's ex-husband, Dr Nigel McKenzie, a consultant psychiatrist in Highgate Mental Health Centre, our flat was needed for somebody with a mental illness. Former MI5 whistleblower David Shayler also lived with human rights activist Belinda McKenzie in the same political 'safe house' for a couple of years until 2007. According to BBC Panorama, Shayler "caused the biggest crisis of official secrecy since the spy catcher affair"; he was jailed for seven weeks in 2002 for breaking the Official Secrets Act. It is unfortunate that Shayler declared himself the Messiah in 2007, became a squatter, and was subsequently ridiculed in the press for changing his name to Delores Kane. A New Statesman article published in September 2006 featuring Shayler and Belinda gives no indication that Shayler believed he was the Messiah at that time; whilst a Daily Mail interview with him the following year reveals he believed himself to be Jesus by June 2007. He has never regained his normal self.

The Esquire article below* is mentioned in a Guardian article dated 27 March 2012. It is an eye-opener, highlighting the monitoring and surveillance that Shayler had to live with back in 2000, and the contradictory briefings and slanders that were coming out of the British establishment and the media. The author, Dr Eamonn O'Neill, is a lecturer in journalism at Strathclyde University.

*On 2 May 2013, Issuu removed this pdf from my Issuu account following a copyright complaint by Hearst Communications. I had uploaded the article to my Issuu account in December 2012. In March 2013, when last I checked, the article had been viewed more than 15,000 times. It can be read here.

BBC PANORAMA: The David Shayler Affair (August 1998)

Former MI5 whistleblower David Shayler "caused the biggest crisis of official secrecy since the spy catcher affair", according to BBC Panorama. He was jailed for seven weeks in 2002 for breaking the Official Secrets Act.

The blocks on public access to our Church and State website continue unabated (WITH UPDATE 18/11/2017 RE: 862nd block since 26 July 2016)

Latest block on access to our website: 9.18pm

Our 90 Honorary Associates include Nobel laureates Philip W. Anderson and the late Sir Harold Kroto; since last October, 63 distinguished people from around the world have given Declan permission to add their names to the list. Nonetheless, we have just experienced Facebook's 18th block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (this is a link to my previous blog post of 4 January). Don Collins, President of the Washington, DC-based International Services Assistance Fund, writes: "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."

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

Meanwhile, the following 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):

Update Summation 18 November (8.11am)

862 blocks on public access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016 (111 blocks last year). 57 blocks last month that included 7 blocks on 19 October (in bold); 28 blocks this month; 9 blocks this week that includes 4 blocks on 13 November (in bold); 2 blocks yesterday, no blocks since midnight today (as of 18 November at 8.11am).

* An unprecedented escalation of 52 blocks in one week at the end of April 2017 that kicked off with our focus on the Danish Cartoon Crisis.

Each of the blocks above has been registered by SiteGround. (The then unprecedented 5 blocks on 23 January 2017 occurred the same day our salaries were renewed for another year.)

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. The President of the London-based Privacy International, Simon Davies, asks: "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.

Facebook's 18th block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (WITH UPDATE - DAY 4 7/1/2017)

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.

Donald A. Collins, President of ISAF, Washington DC



We are calling this Facebook's 18th block since 1 December 2015. This afternoon Facebook stopped me from posting to groups by removing from my posts the title and accompanying information, and this without any stated reason and for an undisclosed period of time. Usually they block me from joining and posting to groups. These blocks have been extended seemingly for the fun of it, and to date I have been blocked for up to six days at a time. I only post to groups articles that I have published on our Church and State website. I also only post to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that I am well familiar with; in fact, I am extremely careful on Facebook but it hasn't made a blind bit of difference for over a year now. Facebook did not respond to any of my previous seventeen appeals, so I'm not expecting a response to my appeal tonight. It reads:

For the attention of Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Facebook

4 January 2017

Dear Facebook,

I wish to appeal your decision this afternoon to stop me from posting to groups by removing from my posts the title and accompanying information, and this without any stated reason and for an undisclosed period of time. A video of this Facebook block can be viewed at http://tinypic.com/m/jpwkkz/1.



I had been sharing Prof. Paul Cliteur's "The Rudi Carrell Affair and its significance for the tension between theoterrorism and religious satire", and only posted to atheist groups I actively participate in almost on a daily basis. Prof. Cliteur is Professor of Jurisprudence, Leiden University (the Netherlands) and is one of our Authors.

This is Facebook's 18th block since 1 December 2015.

1st 1-4 December 2015 (4 days)
2nd 5-7 December 2015 (3 days)
3rd 6-9 January 2016 (4 days)
4th 12-15 January 2016 (4 days)
5th 20-22 January 2016 (3 days)
6th 13-16 February 2016 (4 days)
7th 23-26 March 2016 (4 days)
8th 20-23 May 2016 (4 days)
9th 25-30 May 2016 (6 days)
10th 1-3 July 2016 (3 days)
11th 7-8 September 2016 (2 days)
12th 21-22 September 2016 (3 days)
13th 27-28 September 2016 (2 days)
14th 29 September - 3 October 2016 (5 days)
15th 4-5 October 2016 (2 days)
16th 18-23 October 2016 (6 days)
17th 9-14 December 2016 (6 days)

Facebook has not responded to any of my previous seventeen appeals, notwithstanding that I only ever post to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that I am well familiar with. I also only post to groups articles that I have already published on our Church and State website.

"Surely after multiple postings [Facebook] 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.

Please note that we currently have 90 Honorary Associates, including two Nobel prize winners. Since last October, 63 notable scholars from around the world have given my husband permission to add their names to the list.

Yours faithfully,

Lola Heavey
Webmaster

2 October 2016: Complaint to Facebook Chairman, Chief Executive and Co-Founder Mark Zuckerberg on day 4 of Facebook's 14th block since 1 December 2015

Re: Facebook

Draft paragraph 42 of Declan's next updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

42. On 13 August 2011, then Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone wrote to Facebook on the Applicant's behalf, asking that they explain why the Applicant's wife had been barred. The bar was subsequently lifted; however, since 1 December 2015, Facebook have blocked the Applicant's wife from posting to pages and/or groups on eighteen separate occasions, and up to six days at a time. On 22 December 2015, Shadow Home Office Minister Lyn Brown made an enquiry on the Applicant's behalf to Steve Hatch, the Managing Director of Facebook UK, asking if he could offer an explanation as to the terms and conditions the Applicant's wife was alleged to have broken twice previously. To the best of the Applicant's knowledge, Mr Hatch did not respond to this letter. The Applicant's wife only ever posts to groups that are specific to an article's subject and that she is well familiar with, and she only ever posts articles that she has already published on the Church and State website. Nonetheless, Facebook have not acknowledged or responded to any of the Applicant's wife's eighteen appeals since 1 December 2015. Each of the following blocks are well accounted for in the Applicant's wife's N4CM blog:

1st 1-4 December 2015 (4 days)
2nd 5-7 December 2015 (3 days)
3rd 6-9 January 2016 (4 days)
4th 12-15 January 2016 (4 days)
5th 20-22 January 2016 (3 days)
6th 13-16 February 2016 (4 days)
7th 23-26 March 2016 (4 days)
8th 20-23 May 2016 (4 days)
9th 25-30 May 2016 (6 days)
10th 1-3 July 2016 (3 days)
11th 7-8 September 2016 (2 days)
12th 21-22 September 2016 (3 days)
13th 27-28 September 2016 (2 days)
14th 29 September - 3 October 2016 (5 days)
15th 4-5 October 2016 (2 days)
16th 18-23 October 2016 (6 days)
17th 9-14 December 2016 (6 days)
18th 4-6 January 2017 (3 days)

DAY 4 UPDATE 7 January (11.30am): It appears this morning that Facebook's 18th block since 1 December 2015 has been lifted; however, two days ago we thought Facebook had lifted the block, only to discover an hour later that it had been reinstated. For now, this 18th block records as a 3-day block. No reply to my appeal above, just a standard message on the first day of the block thanking me for my feedback to help them improve their service!! Yesterday I updated my previous blog post from four days ago, The freedom of speech: An unprecedented four recorded blocks on access to our Church and State website today as we work on an important article about religion and freedom of speech (WITH UPDATE 6/1/2017). I updated the blog post with yesterday morning's 98th block on access to our Church and State website since 26 July 2016.

This is the important article by one of our Honorary Associates, Prof. Paul Cliteur, that Declan and I have been working on all day:



The Rudi Carrell Affair and its significance for the tension between theoterrorism and religious satire

Prof. Cliteur is Professor of Jurisprudence, Leiden University (the Netherlands) and author of The Secular Outlook - In Defense of Moral and Political Secularism. His material is simply outstanding; absolutely the best we have come across in years of research. We are extremely proud of our Paul Cliteur category, which we are currently developing. It is a gem. All the articles in the category are written in a straightforward and easy-to-read manner. His lengthy article above is written from a liberal perspective and is a masterpiece. It is also alarming for anyone who cares about liberal democracy and freedom of speech.
