På flugt fra Echelon

Jeg er sikker på min telefon bliver aflyttet. Den laver sådan nogle underlige klik-lyde og folk siger den ringer 15 gange i deres ende, mens den hos mig kun ringer en enkelt gang. Der holder en bil med tonede ruder ned på vejen, og jeg ser mærkelige mennesker i min opgang. Der cirkler en helikopter rundt over huset. Min post ser ud til at have været åbnet. De putter noget i vandet.

Under research-arbejdet på ”I en god sags tjeneste” er nettet blevet brugt flittigt. Da temaerne både er noget med terrorisme og miljøets tilstand, har jeg besøgt hjemmesider af mildest talt tvivlsom karakter. Ekstremistiske øko-grupper, tendentiøse aktivist sites, ”byg dine egne bomber”, Operation Bite Back, Earth First!, ALF, ETA, Black September, Rote Armee Fraktion, GSG-9, Bundeskriminalamt, FBIs most wanted. Søgeord der får alle de røde lamper til at blinke hos Echelon. Og for nyligt skulle jeg tegne Saddam Hussein til M! og brugte nettet til at finde et billede. Jeg er helt klart i søgelyset nu. De bøger jeg har lånt på biblioteket for nyligt gør ikke billedet mindre tydeligt. Palle Schmidt er fanatisk øko-terroist.

Jeg kan næsten lige så godt springe noget i luften nu. De er alligevel lige i hælene på mig. Alt det indsamlede materiale er sendt i brune kuverter til mine medsammensvorne, og deponeret i bankbokse rundt om i landet. Jeg må ætse mine fingeraftryk væk og gå under jorden som så mange før mig.

Som f.eks Darren Thurston, den fængslede ALF aktivist, jeg bl.a. fandt et interview med:

DT: Inside the laboratory itself, we forced open every locked storage cabinet dumping the contents on the floor, smashed sterilizers and other equipment and splashed red paint everywhere. In their office, boxes of files pertaining to illegal sources of the dogs they used and research were taken, everything else was scattered on the floor and then soaked in muriatic acid. Throughout the facility, slogans were spray painted, red paint splashed on walls, electrical cords cut, toilets and sinks smashed.

Animal Liberation Front kæmper mod dyreforsøg og pelsindustrien, og er ophavsmænd til den oprindelige Operation Bite Back i starten af  90’erne.

Men der er også dem der slås for naturen:

The proper place for an Earth First!er is often directly in the path of the machinery of wilderness destruction. It may be a symbolic gesture of defiance, it may slow them down and cost them time and money, and it may also, on occasion, stop them in their tracks. But it is a surefire guarantee that it will take the focus out of the boardrooms and hearing chambers and put it where it belongs, in the wilderness, at the scene of the crime. In this way you can bring the destruction right into people's living rooms.

Targets can include logging equipment, radioactive waste shipments, dam sites and mine sites. Methods include everything from sitting in the road or chaining yourself to gates or equipment, to setting your feet in wet cement and letting it harden, or burying yourself in the road up to your neck. While, generally speaking, the longer a blockade lasts, the more effective it is, even brief and mainly symbolic blockades have proven very effective in building support and expanding the opposition to the destruction of wilderness and the poisoning of the planet.

Jeg ved nu ikke rigtigt om jeg har lyst til at støbe mig selv ind i cement, og agere boksebold for sure skovhuggere og politifolk. Man kunne jo også kaste sig over industrien, der vistnok også er nogle svin:

Grüne Armee Fraktion grafittiThere are 50,000 toxic waste dumps in the U.S. The EPA admits that 90% of the 90 billion pounds of toxic waste produced annaully by U.S. industry (70 % of it by chemical companies) is disposed of "improperly" (although we wonder what they would consider "proper" disposal). These deadly products of industrial civilisation - arsenic, mercury, dioxin, cyanide, and many others - are simply dumped, "legally" and "illegally" wherever is convienient to industry. Some 66,000 different compounds are used in Industry. Nearly a billion tons of pesticides and herbicides comprising 225 different chemicals were produced in the U.S. last year (1984), and an additional 79 million pounds were imported. Some 2% of chemical compounds have been tested for side effects. There are 15,000 chemical plants in the U.S., daily manafacturing mass death.

All of the dumped chemicals are leeching into our water. Some three to four thousand wells, depending on which government agency you ask, are contaminated or closed in the U.S. In Michigan alone, 24 municipal water sytems have been contaminated, and a thouasnd sites have suffered major contamination.

Disse tekstbidder er blot få af de oplysninger man kan finde ved at lede ganske lidt. De virkeligt gustne ting, tør jeg slet ikke poste her. Som hvem der i virkeligheden stod bag Lockerbie katastrofen. Og hvordan det er forbundet til mordet på Oluf Palme, og sprængningen af Greenpeace skibet Rainbow Warrior. Bare fordi man er paranoid, kan der jo godt være nogen efter en. Jeg logger af nu inden de sporer mig.
