@Shufei Earlier in the year I was biking around my city and ran into a randomly heavy police and homeland security presence loitering downtown. Shortly after that I pass a small anti-police protest by the local DSA, being sandwiched by the above.
I found out this protest was apparently a) unregistered with the city (to make it a "surprise action")... and b) planned entirely on facebook. I discovered those facts because I googled some of the details (date, city, "anti-police protest") and got a link to their fb group page as a top result.
Gads, do we really need to *spoon feed* the surveillance ops?
@Shufei Couldn't hurt?
I'd probably start by reading this guide on surveillance self-defense from the EFF and putting some of it into practice:
To be perfectly transparent I'm only slightly more knowledgable than the average bear; but I know enough to know that about myself and avoid getting into situations where that would put myself or others at risk.
@vortex_egg Likewise! The trap of expertise expectation is keeping infosec options from permeating wider community deployment. Like the sex Ed folk say: there is no safe, only safer. It’s worth it to take prudent steps.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
