This N4CM blog has been decimated once again, and I have no access to the TinyPic website (WITH UPDATE - DAY 4 7/11/2016)


UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

(The image I posted here has been vandalized/removed but appears in the update to this blog post below.)

I have lost all my TinyPic images on this blog, which means it has been decimated once again. Even the image I have for my disclaimer in the top right-hand column has been taken out. I have also been denied access to the TinyPic website, so this afternoon I emailed them instead:

4 November 2016

Dear TinyPic,

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

When I go to http://tinypic.com/ all I get is "XML Parsing Error: unexpected parser state". This is a screenshot of what my browsers get when I try to access your site: http://prntscr.com/d31aih (also attached).

And this is a screenshot showing my decimated blog: http://prntscr.com/d31jf9 (also attached).

Please can you resolve this situation.

Sincerely,

Lola Heavey

UPDATE 7 November (9.06am): I have not received a reply from TinyPic. The images I have with them are back but the second image on this blog post has been vandalized/removed. I now have the image saved on one of my memory sticks. This is what my Disclaimer in the top right-hand column looked like when it first appeared on this blog post below the photo of GCHQ above:



HEAVEY v. THE UNITED KINGDOM

COMMUNICATION SUBMITTED FOR CONSIDERATION UNDER THE FIRST OPTIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS
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?"

Breaking Story from The Intercept: Three New Scandals Show How Pervasive and Dangerous Mass Surveillance is in the West, Vindicating Snowden by Glenn Greenwald

Earlier this month, a special British court that rules on secret spying activities issued an emphatic denunciation of the nation's domestic mass surveillance programs. The court found that "British security agencies have secretly and unlawfully collected massive volumes of confidential personal data, including financial information, on citizens for more than a decade." Those agencies, the court found, "operated an illegal regime to collect vast amounts of communications data, tracking individual phone and web use and other confidential personal information, without adequate safeguards or supervision for 17 years."
