sent to these mailing lists with attachments. If you happen to receive a
message with an e-mail attachment,please be aware that our sender
address might have been spoofed and we advise you to check that mail
carefully without first opening the attachment. If you suddenly don't
receive mails from the usual list any more, but didn't unsubscribe, your
mailbox or your ISP might have been tempered with by (hidden) censorship
- please let us know and re-subscribe. Sorry, but if your
e-mail address bounces several times, your address will be unsubscribed
since we have to keep a rather strict unsubscription policy. Please
re-subscribe, if you suddenly don't receive your mails from the specific

fraudulent and/or notorious mail interceptors and trackers like verizon,
aol, gmail,yahoo, msn, hotmail etc.

For good reason you will not find us on fascistbook, google+, twitter or

Ad-mails (spam or UBE/UCE) are terrible, but don't use ISP- or web-based
filters, since you never know their criteria. Stay in control and
install the anti-virus, anti-spam and firewall yourself - they are
unfortunately necessary in these days - and maintain them yourself on
your system! If you are forced to install pre-filtering then choose a
service like who guarantees your mail
safety, supports the EFF and the work of progressive, non-profit NGOs.

IMPORTANT: To ensure delivery of your mails, please add
"" and "" to your address book

in your "Bulk-Mail" or "Junk-Mail" folder. If you write to us and you
don't receive a response within two working days, please send your mail

This motion is hereby served as notice to all Interceptors - no matter
under which pretence whatsoever they operate - and will be used in court
against them.
The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled
on 24 November 2011 already that generalized content filtering violates
fundamental rights. The court has thereby recognized the impact of
Internet filtering on freedom of expression and freedom of information.
In addition the European Court of Justice
invalidated on 08. April 2014 the European Union's 2006 Data Retention
Directive policy, ruling that indiscriminate data retention is
completely unacceptable.
These are crucial steps forward in the defence of Internet freedom.
Europe's top court, the European Union Court of Justice (ECJ), also
decided on May 13 2014
that People must be able to remove their digital traces from the
Internet and can ask e.g. Google to delete sensitive information from
its Internet search results.

*Communications Data Retention*
*Communications Surveillance*
*Data Protection and Privacy Laws*
The United Nations' top official for counter-terrorism and human rights
(known as the Special Rapporteur)issued a formal report
to the U.N. General Assembly on 15. October 2014 that condemns mass
electronic surveillance as a clear violation of core privacy rights
guaranteed by multiple treaties and conventions. "The hard truth is that
the use of mass surveillance technology effectively does away with the
right to privacy of communications on the Internet altogether," the
report concluded.
ECOTERRA says: We have nothing to hide, but we have to protect our
universally guaranteed rights to privacy, free speech and data security!
Privacy is a basic right rather than a concession!
