I am here today to tell the people of Canada what has happened to me.
There have been many allegations made about me in the media, all of them by people who refuse to be named or come forward. So before I tell you who I am and what happened to me, I will tell you who I am not.
I am not a terrorist. I am not a member of al-Qaida and I do not know any one who belongs to this group. All I know about al-Qaida is what I have seen in the media.
I have never been to Afghanistan. I have never been anywhere near Afghanistan and I do not have any desire to ever go to Afghanistan. Now, let me tell you who I am.
06-11-2003 20:10November 9th is International "Stop The Wall" Day, with protests and actions to raise awareness of the apartheid "security" wall being built in the West Bank.
We need people to come to Bonn Square, 1-3pm, to form Oxford's own "Wall", by wearing large cardboard sections, linking arms to form an inpenetrable security shield!
It should be lively!

05-11-2003 13:53More than 300 women have been murdered in Chihuahua since 1993. Under the slogan: "Stop the femizide! Not one more!", Operacion Digna and JUSTICIA PARA NUESTRAS HIJAS [Justice for our Daughters] called for an online demonstration from Oct 31 to Nov 2, 2003 [Full Feature]
Participation in this Floodnet action was impressive: 138,321 hits over the three day period means that 138,321 individual computers were used in the course of the action, from 34 countries. According to a source Electronic Disturbance Theatre, the word got out to lots of underground hacker groups who prefer this sort of anonymous action to signing petitions and participating in marches.
This impressive show of support can be used by the mothers of murdered and disappeared girls as a means of applying pressure to the Mexican government. Also, it is very useful to have hacker support: In Argentina last year, hackers won a case in the Supreme Court that legally protects them if they access government records as public service. Many students at the UCLA conference were very interested in using the internet as an activist tool.
