#^A Municipal Vote in Providence for Police Reform Carries National Implications

After three years of sustained community mobilization and advocacy, the Providence City Council in Rhode Island voted this Thursday to unanimously approve among the most visionary set of policing reforms proposed around the country to protect civil rights and civil liberties, including digital liberties. EFF supported the proposed Community Safety Act (CSA), and its adoption represents a milestone that should prompt similar measures in other jurisdictions.

Reflecting an understanding of of how many different communities endure parallel—but seemingly separate—violations of civil rights and civil liberties, the CSA aims to address surveillance alongside racial and other dimensions of discriminatory profiling. The ordinance imposes crucial limits on police powers at a time when local police have become the leading edge of mass surveillance, as well as longstanding abuses of civil rights and digital liberties rooted in the war on drugs.

The most notable facet of the CSA is its sheer breadth. It addresses a wide-ranging set of issues in a single reform measure.

For instance, the Act requires that any collection of intelligence information—whether by electronic surveillance mechanisms or more traditional means—be supported by reasonable suspicion of criminal activity. On the one hand, that requirement should be implicit given the First and Fourth Amendments, and the history of politicized domestic surveillance within the United States. On the other hand, relative to the prevailing practice of ubiquitous intelligence collection, the Act’s requirements represent a monumental legal shift.

In addition, the CSA protects the right of residents to observe and record police activities. That right has been vital to sparking a sustained debate across the country about police accountability, but has come under fire. Just this month, a federal appellate court heard oral argument in an appeal seeking to vindicate the right to record police in the wake of trial court decisions in multiple cases perversely holding that residents gain a right to record only after announcing their hostility to police, effectively inviting retaliation or even violence.

The bill also protects Due Process rights threatened by the otherwise arbitrary and secretive inclusion of individuals in government gang databases. In California, for instance, state auditors discovered that the state’s program received “no state oversight” and operated “without transparency or meaningful opportunities for public input,” prompting the state legislature to intervene by passing a new law providing notice of inclusion and an opportunity to contest it.

At the same time, responding to controversy about traffic stops and pedestrian stop and frisks rooted in bias rather than observed behavior, the Act requires that police change their processes for searching subjects. In particular, when seeking to search subjects without either a judicial warrant or probable cause to suspect criminal activity, the Act requires police to inform the subjects that they have the right to decline consent to the requested search. That represents a sea change in policing, given the practice among some police departments to train officers to use deception to induce a subject's consent, ensuring that it is neither informed nor voluntary.

Similarly, the Act's restrictions on racial profiling and intelligence collection absent reasonable suspicion of criminal activity offer important bulwarks to reinforce our Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as 14th Amendment protections to be free from racial and other forms of discrimination.

Beyond the CSA’s substantive breath lies a novel theory of change informing its construction. Rather than a discrete reform proposed by advocates and then suggested to community members and groups for support, the CSA represents a concerted attempt to address the intersectional concerns of several communities responding to a common challenge: discriminatory or otherwise unconstitutional police practices.

While Providence has distinguished itself in the remarkably diverse coalition of community groups that have come together to pursue common cause, the issues to which Providence activists are responding are hardly unique to their city. Ultimately, grassroots groups in every major city across the country might learn something from the coalition to pass the Providence Community Safety Act.

#^CARF e ITAÚ: Escândalo do financismo

Imagem/foto

Jornais e televisão "se esquecem" de noticiar um escândalo de R$ 25 bilhões na esfera do Ministério da Fazenda e não mencionam uma peculiar decisão do CARF

@Brasileiros na RedMatrix+
Alexandre Hannud Abdo
  
Contudo é importante ter perspectiva das coisas... o artigo acima não deixa de ser ele mesmo um caso de distorção da realidade. Segundo um amigo que conhece melhor o caso:


1- Isso foi noticiado sim em tudo quanto é lugar

2- Carf é a primeira instância administrativa. Ainda tem a segunda e depois o judiciário

3- O artigo "esqueceu" de mencionar que foi o conselheiro que procurou o Itaú para pedir propina e que foi o próprio Itaú quem denunciou, dando origem à operação quatro mãos. Que empresário aqui que já não foi vítima de tentativa de achaque de fiscal levante a mão, por favor. Não existe.

4- Todo empresário sabe do afã do estado em cobrar impostos sobre tudo. Vide o absurdo que era icms ser considerado faturamento da empresa e o governo cobrar pis/cofins sobre isso. Imposto cobrado sobre imposto. Durante muitos anos essa coisa sem sentido foi legal. Ou seja, o governo é bem filho da puta nessas questões.

5- o governo não perdeu, deixou de ganhar impostos. Diferente.

6- Isso foi uma operação de elisão fiscal, não evasão. Elisão é quando existem duas formas diferentes e LEGAIS de se realizar uma operação e a empresa, obviamente, escolhe a que menos onera. Perfeitamente legal. No mundo inteiro tem essa briga de governo e empresas. Governo sempre fala que quando tem duas formas tem que escolher a que mais onera de imposto. Pois não há "sentido negocial" a não ser economizar impostos. Ora, economizar impostos é sim negocial. Da pra investir mais, remunerar mais, etc. Total absurdo de todos os governos. Se tá na lei e pode, não há problema oras.

7- O artigo também não analisou o mérito da operação. Só fez estardalhaço com a "perda do governo". Totalmente parcial e rasa a análise. Fora que mesmo se prosperasse a tese de que sempre tem que ser a operação que mais onera a que tem que ser usada, o ganho de capital foi dos acionistas do unibanco, não do Itaú. Mas claro que o governo sempre cobra quem é mais fácil e que aparece mais, né

A comment on media privacy

 Paris, France 
Mike MacgirvinMike Macgirvin escreveu a seguinte publicação Fri, 14 Apr 2017 08:32:48 -0300
Really should do an article on media privacy, except here it's just preaching to the choir. That's my biggest problem with activtypub and why it's dead on arrival as a protocol I can see myself working with. If you've got a 1G video and want to share it privately with 100 friends, each of their servers needs to store the 1G video. If one server has 6 of your friends on it, that server needs 6G. And there are now 100 copies of your private video. We all do this with messages, but media is where it gets really pesky. This is mediagoblin's privacy story. Diaspora is like nextcloud, but they only store photos. Your media privacy on these services is protected by a random string. That's all. I've got a private photo of Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook that was protected by a random string. So think about that if your facebook or nextcloud private files have been on the web more than a day. Eventually someone will guess or brute force the magic string. Statusnet has nothing. They honestly don't believe that privacy is worth the effort. It's definitely hard, but your bank thinks it's worth the effort. So do I. All I can do is give it a go, because these other projects don't give me much in the way of warm fuzzies. The nice thing about doing it with zot, is that you're only storing one copy and hackers can guess magic strings for years. If they can't actually authenticate, they can't see the video. The other problem I have with activitypub is the message envelope. It's unencrypted and visible to every server. We had a big problem with email because of the unencrypted envelope. It's metadata. Chinese dissidents in the 80s,90s were imprisoned due to the email envelope. Diaspora encrypts the envelope, and then sends it to a url withe the recipient's id in it. So encrypting the envelope was pointless. The metadata is free for the taking. They're also hardwired to use aes256cbc. If there's a flaw in that crypto algorithm, the entire protocol needs to be reworked. Google 'Padded Oracle'. That's enough for now. I'm tired. There may be flaws in my own privacy models, but at least I've thought about all these things and tried to do something about them, and I'm always on the lookout for better methods. The rest of the web seems to be happy and content with software exposing these really basic problems. You can't educate a man with a closed mind. Good night amigos.

eu não entendo dessas coisas, mas me parece  uma postura de burro querer convencer redes livres (tipo diaspora) a usar um protocolo desse tipo se é verdade o que ta nessa postagem.

So: a quick note to my international friends, just to make sure that you all know what IS going on in the Netherlands, at the moment. First of all: to my great regret, the Dutch voters did NOT reject Geert Wilders. He actually GAINED five seats in parliament. It is true that, for a long time, polls predicted that he would win a much greater number ...

Hacía memoria que prácticamente en cualquier revuelta, en primera fila siempre hay un perro haciendo frente a la policía. Cuando la huelga estudiantil de la UNAM, en cada escuela okupada había un perro nombrado Huelga. Durante la defensa del pueblo de Atenco muchos perros acompañaron la resistencia. En la Comuna de Oaxaca, manadas de perros hicieron presencia en las barricadas. Tampoco faltaron los perros insurrectos en los motines contra el ascenso de Peña Nieto. Significativo que en la Okupa Che los perros han sido heridos por balas de la policía..

Sin duda el más querido es Loukanikus, infaltable en las revueltas ácratas en Grecia.


"Le ladro a los autos y a la policía.
Soy sólo un perro que vive en la anarquía"

Discrepo en esta ocasión, Alexandre. "La educación prohibida" es una no muy disimulada promoción de las escuelas Montesori, una mal hilvanada sucesión de imágenes de colegios en parajes idílicos y una antología de frases más o menos bonitas sobre la educación utópica o críticas tópicas sobre lo mal que funciona la enseñanza... La película/documental sobrevuela a muchos metros de altura, sin anclaje ni análisis concretos en cualquier realidad educativa reconocible, en un mundo de ideas platónicas donde parece que el amor resolverá todos los enormes, variados y complejos problemas de la educación en este jodido mundo. Para mí, se trató, fundamentalmente, de un gran y exitoso montaje publicitario.

De acordo, Manuel, creio que o assistia ao fundo enquanto lia textos muito mais concretos,  e assim os 'vazios' do 'documentario' se preenchiam a partir das leituras, sem que eu me desse conta.
