Bristol indymedia site under state attack again as ISP served court order by UK police
The Server of the Bristol indymedia IMC has been accessed by court order and all open publishing has been suspended. This coincides with the upcoming NATO meeting in Cardiff and is likely part of a government fishing expedition. The scope of the information accessed by police was far wider than that required to investigate the anonymous posts used as the excuse for the court order served on Bristol IMC's ISP
the PACE special procedure production order obtained by Avon and Somerset Police and served on Bytemark on 15th August 2014 "demands access to the details of administrators and bill-payers, login credentials, information on those who posted articles and the IP addresses of everyone who visited the site over an unspecified period". The court order served on Bytemark hasn't been published.
Bristol Indymedia disabled open publishing on the server and said "it is unlikely that open publishing of news items will ever be re-enabled as it would require complete re-installation of the server".
Whatever the future holds for Bristol indymedia, I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the project for their efforts to date in trying to keep the idea of open publishing alive in Bristol. Good luck to all and thanks from the volunteers at indymedia,ie IMC
Rather than re-inventing the wheel, I will repost this very informative comment
which was posted to Indymedia UK site by "Chris" (thanks Chris!!)
Disinformation, misinformation and the Security State
Indymedia.co.uk Article here:
Here is what was reported in the Bristol press about this.:
As you can see, the "disinformation" referred to by Chris in his comment above is repeated exactly as he said in this MSM newspaper article.
It was also repeated in the times article here: (paywall)
So if you ever needed conclusive proof that you don't get the truth in the mainstream rags, then there it is
This article is also worth checking out on the subject:
You can read the times article in the comments as somebody has kindly pasted it there. ;-)
Here's some background about Bristol IMC's history with US / UK "law enforcement"
As you can see, they certainly made some powerful enemies!
