We the monitored have decided to stand up against the very real, very
intrusive, and ultimately oppressive global surveillance system known as 
Echelon. Echelon is a vast mainframe set up by the New World Disorder in 
order to monitor the world's electronic communications for subversive 
keywords. Every time you send someone an email with keywords like 
"revolution" and "hacktivism" [for instance], Echelon's computers make a 
note of it. If you forward emails with regularity with words on Echelon's 
extensive keyword list, you may be marked for human "hands-on" monitoring.

On October 21, 1999 , netizens around the globe are implored to send out at 
least one email with at least 50 keyword words. You need not be privy to 
knowing exactly what words Echelon uses. It is safe to assume that words 
such as "revolution" and "manifesto" and "revolt" [etc.] will work. Just be 
sure to sound as subversive as possible. There isn't even any need to write 
a cohesive paragraph or sentence. Echelon's computers does not understand 
the language anyway. It only knows to look for certain words. By doing this 
we can at least temporarily jam the global surveillance system.

This day of action will be timed to preceed Stop Police Brutality Day by one 
day so that emails about actions can be sent out with little scrutiny due to 
what will already be an enormous workload for Echelon.

Now is a chance for anyone, regardless of computer expertise, to become an 
instant hacktivist - best of all, no software is needed [other than your 
regular email program].

Of course, feel free to conduct such subversiveness any time. The larger 
Echelon's workload, the more free our speech.

After October 1, we ask global netizens to merely stop censoring themselves 
for fear of spooky scrutiny. By merely deciding to speak in the spirit of 
unabashedly subverting the DOMINANCE paradigm, we will make it quite 
difficult for Echelon to do its job.
