Human Rights Lawyer Warns Activists About Cops Lurking on Facebook

Kurt Nimmo

Political activists should watch what they say on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, British barrister and humans rights expert John Cooper QC told The Independent on Monday.

Social media is the “next big thing in law enforcement,” Cooper explained. He told the newspaper police are actively surveilling activists online and are increasingly astute with social media platforms.

“People involved in public protest should use social media to their strengths, like getting their message across. But they should not use them for things like discussing tactics. They might as well be having a tactical meeting with their opponents sitting in and listening.

“For example, if antifascist organizers were discussing their plans on social media, they can assume that a fascist organization will be watching. Social media sites are the last place you want to post something like that,” he told The Independent.

Cooper said “activists are putting themselves at more risk. Police will be following key Twitter sites, not only those of the activists but also other interesting figures. They know how to use them to keep up with rioting and to find alleged rioters.”

On September 26, we reported on an effort by the European Union and public-private partners – dubbed The Clean Sweep Project – to “reduce the impact of the use of Internet for terrorist purposes, without affecting our online freedom.”

I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

Yes, it's the last few paragraphs ^ in particular that are sinister.

This miraculous means of learning and communicating with like-minded people across the globe was always destined to be infiltrated by 'the interferers', but the precedent set in the Raub debacle is a clear warning of what can happen to dissenters. And to my mind, the parties who acted in that case, to detain him and try to pin him as clinically insane, acted illegally, and should be brought to justice for it.

I'll need to look whether that was resolved, as the last I read he was still incarcerated but appeared to have a good lawyer working on his behalf.

This sounds cool when can we expect to see all the MSM news channels and .gov sites closed down?

I don't have a FB account. Being careful with what one writes, do you think it would be necessary to have a FB account?


This, the CIA, and other intelligence monitoring at what time you go to pee. turns me off. No privacy.
