CanalTech (Google Translation):

São Paulo received this week the event # ArenaNETmundial ParticipaBR, which was the scene of discussions about a free, collaborative, democratic and plural internet. On Thursday (24), a central theme was the “digital sovereignty and surveillance in the Internet age.”

Experts in defense for privacy and digital security participated in the panel, which was a kind of “side B” NETMundial, an event that brings together city representatives in more than 90 countries to discuss Internet governance.

Among the panelists were Jacob Appelbaum, one of the leading names behind the Tor Anonymity Network, Roy Singham, ThoughtWorks, Natália Viana, Brazil responsible for WikiLeaks and even Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks itself.

The basis of the discussion was the case of former analyst at the National Security Agency of the United States (NSA), Edward Snowden, which revealed a number of confidential documents that point to an indiscriminate surveillance by the U.S. government.

During the conversation, the sociologist and digital activist Sergio Amadeu strongly defended the use of encrypted communication for personal communication as a form of protection – and also as a way to “break even for the NSA.” That’s because, according to Roy Singham, NSA spends $ 0.13 to spy on every citizen of the world. Therefore, the more we generate encryption, will be more difficult and expensive this task.

Roy also took the opportunity to make an appeal to the hacker community in Brazil, saying that ordinary citizens need your help to make the encryption more popular something, after all not everyone knows how to handle it. The creation of more “soft” systems help in the dissemination of these techniques and increase the security of your information.

“Who else invades the machines people are not hackers or crackers, are large corporations,” Sergio said. The teacher went on to say that we need to put our privacy above the interests of these corporations. “The frontier of cyber warfare is our computer. People should exorcise their Windows machines,” concluded Sergio.

NETMundial and Marco Civil

All participants welcomed the initiative of the Brazilian government to promote one of the biggest debates in the world of internet, even citing it as “a big step toward changing guidelines of Internet governance.”

Roy went on to say that the Civil Marco Internet was one of the first laws to bring human rights into the digital area, and even without being perfect, it’s the first time someone raised a hand to say that the internet is for the people , and not to corporations.

The CEO of ThoughtWorks was also responsible for establishing a video conference with Julian Assange during the debate. Despite some technical problems during the connection, the creator of WikiLeaks, which is for exactly 1233 days in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, also spoke in favor of the Civil Marco, saying that it is something “commendable”.

Assange, wearing a shirt of Brazil during transmission, was keen to emphasize the importance we charged everything that says the document signed by President Dilma Rousseff, because just because something was approved does not necessarily mean that it will be fulfilled.


Jacob Appelbaum was firm in saying that the event was affected by censorship still exists in Brazil, and that shortly before taking the stage still believed that the panel could be canceled due to the strong opinions of participants – largely opposed to governments.

Assange shared the opinion of the creator of Tor, and said that the NETMundial was compromised by geopolitical pressure from the U.S. and its allies. “The U.S. has been colonialists in the Brazilian internet and recognize threat in this field,” he said. “Occupy the Internet is occupying society,” he added.

Political Asylum

Natália Viana, Brazil responsible for WikiLeaks, pulled one of the issues that most stirred the audience during the panel: the position of Brazil where Assange and Snowden. For her, President Dilma should grant political asylum to former NSA analyst, primarily due to having been so offended by the discovery that was also a victim of American espionage.

She also stressed that the country is a strong candidate to mediate the impasse between Ecuador and the United Kingdom in the case of Assange, mainly due to the jurisdiction of the Foreign Ministry in solving international cases.

Finally, while your situation remained depressed, Julian Assange called everyone together to fight for a change in the current situation in which we live.



Today WikiLeaks released the penultimate draft agreement (“Outcome Document”) going into NETmundial 2014 – the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance. NETmundial is an international conference of twelve nations and other internet stakeholders, to be hosted in São Paulo, Brazil, April 23-24, convened to lay down a roadmap for internet governance. It is co-hosted by the twelve goverments of Argentina, Brazil, France, Ghana, Germany, India, Indonesia, South Africa, South Korea, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States of America. The document was prepared by the NETmundial Executive Multistakeholder Committee (EMC) from the 180 NETmundial submissions and has been submitted to the High Level Multistakeholder Committee (HLMC) for final comment. The HLMC comprises ministerial level representation from the twelve co-hosting nations and is due to give its feedback tomorrow, on April 9.

Brazil, China, India Rally Round Russia After G7 Snub

EU Observer:

BRUSSELS – The G7 club of wealthy nations has cancelled a summit with Russia over its annexation of Crimea, but emerging economies have protested against its exclusion from a G20 meeting.

The G7 leaders – from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the US – announced the move in a communique published after their meeting in The Hague on Monday (24 March). The June summit, which was to be held in the G8 format with Russia in Sochi, on the Black Sea coast, will now be held in Brussels.

The communique said Russia’s actions “are not consistent” with the G7’s “shared beliefs” and that they will “suspend” the G8 “until Russia changes course”. It also said G7 states “remain ready to intensify actions, including co-ordinated sectoral sanctions … if Russia continues to escalate this situation”.

For its part, US ally Australia had indicated Russia might also be excluded from a G20 summit in Brisbane in November. But Brazil, China, India, and South Africa rejected the idea. They said, together with Russia, also at The Hague, where almost 60 countries had sent VIPs to a Nuclear Security Summit, that “the escalation of hostile language, sanctions and counter-sanctions … does not contribute to a sustainable and peaceful solution” to the Ukraine crisis.

“The custodianship of the G20 belongs to all member states equally and no one member state can unilaterally determine its nature.” With Brazil and China now wealthier than some G7 countries, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov noted the G7 has lost its monopoly on global governance.

“If our Western partners believe this format [G8] has exhausted itself, let it be. We are not clinging to it. As an experiment, we can wait a year or a year and a half and see how we live without it,” he said.

Lavrov in The Hague met with his Ukrainian counterpart, Andrey Deshchytsia, for the first time since the crisis began. But he did not agree to launch bilateral talks to resolve the dispute, as demanded by the EU and US.

He noted only that Ukraine must undertake unspecified “constitutional reforms” and repeated the Kremlin line that Ukraine’s revolution is a form of Western expansionism.

Meanwhile, Ukraine circulated a draft UN General Assembly resolution which says Crimea’s recent referendum on secession has “no validity”. It got backing from UN head Ban Ki Moon, who said Russia’s violation of the Budapest memorandum – a 1994 treaty giving Ukraine security guarantees in return for nuclear disarmament – has “profound” implications “both for regional security and the integrity of the nuclear non-proliferation regime”.

Russia on Monday also hit back at Western sanctions by blacklisting 13 Canadians. It has mocked EU and US blacklists and economic threats. But its own deputy economy minister, Andrei Klepach, on Monday forecast that Russia’s first quarter economic growth will be zero and that $70 billion of capital will leave the country in developments he linked to “worsening of relations”.

Russia’s state-owned Sberbank the same day said capital flight could reach $100 billion.

Regime Change: First Ukraine, Next Venezuela, Then Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil

Now that US Secretary of State John Kerry has issued an ultimatum to Russia, telling Putin that he has until Monday to follow Washington’s orders or else, hopefully everyone can see the repeat of the March of Folly that produced World War 1.

In my last column, “Merkel Whores For Washington,” I mistakenly attributed to Khrushchev all transfers of Russian territory to Ukraine.  The first gifts of Russian territories to Ukraine were made by Lenin, and the last was Sevastopol in the early 1990s.

I have posted today Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of how Russian territory was given to Ukraine.  In the meantime, Washington’s puppet regime in Kiev has sent in thugs to commit violence against protesting Russians in eastern Ukraine who want nothing to do with Washington’s stooges in Kiev, prompting Russia to issue another warning that the Russian military will protect Russians. Clearly, Washington is doing everything it can to provoke Putin into sending the Russian Army into eastern Ukraine.  Now that Merkel has sold out Europe, the course of Ukrainian events seems clear, which provides an opportunity for me to address Washington’s coup-in-the-making against Venezuela.

Venezuela Also Is Being Overthrown By The Criminal Regime In Washington

The Washington orchestrated coup in Ukraine has kept Venezuela out of the headlines.

A confrontation with nuclear armed Russia is more dangerous than with Venezuela.  But the violence that Washington has unleashed on Venezuela almost simultaneously with Ukraine is testimony to Washington’s stark criminality.

South America has always consisted of a tiny Spanish elite with all the money and power ruling over large majority populations of indigenous peoples who have not had political representation.  In Venezuela, Chavez broke this pattern. An indigenous president was elected who represented the people and worked in their behalf instead of looting the country. Chavez became a role model, and indigenous presidents were elected in Ecuador and Bolivia.

Chavez was hated by Washington and demonized by American presstitutes.  When Chavez died of cancer, Washington celebrated.

Evo Morales, President of Bolivia, was inclined in favor of granting asylum to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Consequently, Washington ordered its European puppet states to deny overflight permission to President Morales’ airplane on its return to Bolivia from Russia. Morales’ airplane, in violation of every diplomatic protocol, was forced down and searched.  Morales has since suffered other indignities at the hands of the Washington criminals.

Rafael Correa, President of Ecuador, made himself a target of Washington by granting political asylum to Julian Assange.  On Washington’s orders, Washington’s  British puppet state has refused to grant free passage to Assange, and Assange is spending his life in the London Embassy of Ecuador, just as Cardinal Mindszenty spent his life in the US Embassy in Communist Hungary.

With Chavez’s death, indigenous Venezuelan Nicolas Maduro became president. Maduro does not have Chavez’s charisma, which makes him an easier target for the tiny Spanish elite that owns the media.

Washington began the attack on Maduro by attacking the Venezuelan currency and driving down its value in currency markets.  Then university students, many of whom are the children of the rich Spanish elites, were sent out to protest.  The falling Venezuelan currency raised prices and spread dissatisfaction among Maduro’s poor indigenous base.  To put down the rioting, property damage, and unrest that Washington is using to launch a coup, Maduro had to turn to the police. Secretary of State John Kerry has labeled the government’s effort to reestablish public order and forestall a coup a “terror campaign against its own citizens.”

Having orchestrated the protests and plotted a coup, Kerry blamed Maduro for the violence that Kerry unleashed and called on Maduro “to respect human rights.”

For Washington, it is always the same script. Commit a crime and blame the victim.

If Washington can overthrow Maduro, the next target will be Correa.  If Washington can get rid of Correa and re-empower a puppet government of rich Spanish elites, Washington can have the Ecuadoran government revoke the political asylum that Correa granted to Julian Assange.  The Ecuadoran Embassy in London will be ordered to kick Assange out into the waiting arms of the British police who will send him to Sweden who will send him to Washington to be tortured until he confesses to whatever Washington demands.

The poor gullible dupes demonstrating in Venezuelan streets have no more idea of the damage they are doing to themselves and others than their counterparts in Ukraine had. Venezuelans have already forgotten what life for them was like under the rule of the Spanish elites. It appears that Venezuelans are determined to help Washington to return them to their servitude.

If Washington reconquers Venezuela and Ecuador, Bolivia will be next. Then Brazil.

Washington has its sights on Brazil, because the country is a member of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), and Washington intends to destroy this organization before the countries can establish a trading bloc that does not use the US dollar.

Not long ago a US official said that as soon as we (Washington) get Russia in a bind, we will deal with the upstarts in South America.

The program is on schedule.

Australia’s presidency of the G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors is nearing the end of its first official day. Already delegates meeting in Sydney have been urged to agree on a range of strategies, such as boosting global growth to cracking down on multinational companies that don’t pay their fair share of tax. But the high-powered summit comes as emerging nations are hurting as the US Federal Reserve begins to wind back its multi-billion dollar stimulus.

Photojournalist Santiago Ilidio Andrade,49 has passed as a result of a head injury he sustained whilst reporting on the Anti- Governemnt rally in Rio on 7th February 2014.

Rio’s Municipal Health Secretariat confirmed on February 11th that the neurosurgeons treating Andrade had said he was now brain dead.

Military police and tactical squads said they had not used any such fireworks, and experts analysing available footage later concluded the rocket-style pyrotechnic was launched by protesters.

After footage of the incident was broadcast, one of the protesters involved – tattoo artist Fabio Raposo, 22 – presented himself at a police station to say he had found the firework on the ground, and passed it to an unknown protester who had launched it.

Santiago Ilidio Andrade’s daughter Vanessa, 29 also a journalist has paid tribute to her father’s passing.

Mr. Andrade had won two awards during the ten years he worked for TV Bandeirantes.

His death was the first fatality in the wave of sporadic protests, and it gripped the country.
