i feel it is a type of  net.political action that should be supported by spreading
the information of the event. is it an action, hacktivsim, refacement, or
yes..all of the above...i have the sense that in the same way that top_down
.mil and .gov agenda are trying to define each of these terms for the the purposes
command and control...that the bottom_up movements are also tyring to
define hacktivism for the purposes of focus_deployment of issue based
which is not about command and control...but a question of long_term efforts...

what activist really want to deal with is the question of long_term

because one action will never be enough
