Vth of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

A call to the world… Help me keep believing

I’m thinking about what happened yesterday. I thought about it all day long. I didn’t sleep that much. I feel so lost… I don’t know what to do…

I can’t believe some people agreed with how the police beat us and send our friend to the hospital. I can’t believe people are still believing in that police who’s supposed to protect us from the fascists and extremists. They fucking beat young ant-fascits students because we were just there to say no to ALL the extremists. I mean, how people can allow them to beat their children when we, the children, are trying to awake the fucking world?! How is it just fucking imaginable?!

I heard that the police could complain against all of us for rebellion. We can have from fines to convictions. And this is the usual method that cops use now to turn a victim of police’s violence into guilty of rebellion. I think the cops are over using their power and this is no more their job they’re doing. This is pure repression and violence for the elite.

I’m going to tell you what I did today. I went to the city center of Brussels for some shopping with my sister. First thing, I refused to take any underground public transports. So we stayed outside. Second thing, whenever I saw cops or police cars or heard them, my heart started to beat very quickly and my eyes were looking everywhere to find them. I felt so insecure! I was scared to find those cops behind me trying to get me one more time. I didn’t enjoy my time there. Worst: my sister had to take my fucking hand because she felt me in distress and she tried to calm me down. It works a bit but now, I don’t want to go out unless it’s really necessary.

I’m hopeless now. I feel like the cops are going to win one more time and just have everything for them while we’re all going to feel that anger growing in us. I feel  like I’m so fucked and maybe, this whole “revolution” thing is just a lie, a fucking toy the 1% of this world made to let us play with as they keep sucking our blood, sweat, tears and money out of us. I feel like my energy is already empty and none in this world really wants to move and change stuff.

I’m hopeless. So hopeless.

I’d like to ask for help but who can help us? Who can help me? My faith in this world exploded yesterday in jail. Everything I saw and heard made me feel bad, worst than what I expected. And the very worst of all is that I don’t know who/what can help me.

Maybe the Anon family could but there’re way much more interesting and useful actions to take that I won’t ask them. The “usual” way of nongovernmental organizations always takes so much time.

I want the cops to know that this time, that was enough. That was the last time. And now, they have to pay. Help me. Please. Help me…

Here are some of the pictures I took. Use them, share them.

Anonymous? Occupy? OWS?

What am I?

Today, I was at school. During one of our breaks, we went out for a cigarette. I lightened mine and a friend of mine came to me and asked me: “well, because I know you read a lot of things and post a lot of things about it, I wanted to ask you something. Are you an Anonymous?”

I wanted to answer immediately: “no, I’m not even if I totally agree with their actions”. But the words stayed inside me and I thought about it. Am I an Anonymous…?

I never considered myself as an Anonymous as Medias show them. I never hacked any site. I never DDoSed anything. I’m not good enough for that, I think… So, no, I’m not an Anon in that way.

But, I did thousands of research about what is Anonymous and I found out that you can also be an Anon without DDoS and stuff. Because you ask question about the system, because you share information, because you fight for your freedom of speech and exist, because you don’t allow sects and things like that and because you act for a better world you can call yourself Anonymous.

This is how I see the things: Anon are a group of people who fight with whatever they have to assure to the future generations a better world or at least a less fucked up world. People good with computers use their skills at it to act against anything that try to reduce our existence. I’m not one of those people. I’m most the kind that go out in the streets, whatever weather is it, allowed demonstration or not, I go out, march on the streets and show my disagreement with anything that would reduce my freedoms. I share as much as possible information I found and critics about this world. I try to open people’s eyes.

So, am I an Anon? I think that I am but in the same time, I do also agree with all the Occupy movements and OWS too…

I like to say that I’m just a Citizen of the world who wants a better world for everyone. And, most important, I’ll act and take any action to achieve that. Whatever it costs, I march on. Always.

Cheers, Lady of Flesh

#OpBelgium #StopACTA

Hi everyone!
For once, I wanted to do a video-blog but I couldn’t because I lost my voice… again.

Today was a massive day for every freedom fighter like me because many demonstrations were programming everywhere in Europe against the disgusting ACTA project. Did I just say “project”? God, it’s not a project anymore! They voted it. Who? I don’t know, the people who voted it, worked on it and passed it ARE NOT PEOPLE I VOTED TO FOR THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT!!! And that’s why everything about ACTA is more dangerous and disgusting than any other law.
Is it the end of that so-called “democracy” they tried to spread in ever country they “visited”? Because it doesn’t look like democracy anymore. Europe is a fucking non-sense when it’s about having the general laws for the 27. Well, to be honest, the only good side of Europe is : one money, no more change when I travel and Euromilion. THAT’S IT!
The parliament is just a bunch of assholes full of the money the lobbies gave them to shut it up and sign everything. I’m just totally crazy when I hear “ACTA is good for artists” because fuck no, it’s not! The labels is gonna get more money and the artists won’t be able to spreak their art across the Internet, as long as it’s censored and übber-watched over! What about the generic drugs? What about the seeds that can feed THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD? What about MY freedom to read, write, listen and share anything I want and find more useful than the bullshits on TV?

I’m scared. I’m really scared to see this world becoming completely blind and live another black period in history. In Middle Age, churches censored every Antic document. The idea was that for a better world – in the point of view of the religion it meant a world where God was above everything and everyone – people should be ignorant and just follow the priests and the Bible. Sciences were totally forbidden. Innovation too, obviously. The darkest part of the Middle Age was the craziest period of the humanity. Can you imagine how people were blind and stupid that time? Can you imagine a world where a minority of assholes decides everything, absolutely EVERYTHING, for you because they don’t even consider you like human? I don’t want to live that.

I refuse to live that today. My freedom is way much more important than anything else because so many people died and fought for our freedom. Not only in 1789 during the French Revolution but everywhere… In 1786 in the US, people decided to be free. And recently, in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Syria, Morocco and Algeria people are still fighting for their freedom. Are you going to stay at home, in front of your screen, while the “governments” are fucking your basic freedoms? Freedom of speech is a Human Right! NONE CAN TAKE IT FROM US UNLESS WE LET THEM DO!!

And I don’t. Fighting is everything I can do. And I will fight!

Here you have some pictures from the Stop ACTA protest in Brussels, this 28th of Jan. so you know in the Belgian laws covering your face with a mask is forbidden. As you can see, we didn’t really give a fuck about it today…

World

I don’t know for you but I am a huge Internet user. I like to read random articles, keep my culture updated and watch videos. I share opinions and write my thoughts. I like to be free to do that. I like to be able to find anything I need by some clicks. I’m not talking about legal/illegal download. But just read an article; find a resource for a lesson, etc.

I like to be aware of what’s happening in my city, country and world. I am curious to see what my leaders are doing for me, as a citizen. This is the point of democracy. To keep an eye on the people I voted for. Stop me if I am wrong… Right. I learned at school that, as citizen of a democratic country, we can ask our leaders what they are doing, what they are working on and what they plan for our future. That is basically why we vote for them. Just a little precision: in Belgium, voting is obligatory for every citizen of 18+. So, I vote for my leaders. I am not so naïve. I know this is all political bullshit. But let’s do like everything was crystal clear, normal and true.

So can anybody tell me why my leaders worked on a very bad law? Why do they try to keep that secret until the day the citizens won’t be able to do anything against it? I learned we were a democratic nation and because of that everything should be done to respect the Human Rights. The Human Rights guarantee freedom for every one of us. Making stupid laws who cut our freedom in any way are against the Human Rights. And they are the foundation of (most of) our nations!

I feel so revolted when I see something like ACTA. It’s a global European law that will touch the whole world because it is all about the “counterfeit” and how to stop them. In theory, it sounds really nice because you think that every owner of a copyrighted idea, song, music, movie or anything else like a medicine, a new machine or anything will touch what he deserves for it.  In facts, this is just the way the lobbies found to keep their money from illegal download, stop the creation by sharing ideas and watch over EVERYBODY. The ISP (Internet Service Providers) would be able to watch over everything we do on the internet which means: what we share, videos we watch, emails we send and receive, phone conversations, social networks we use, personal bank information and many other domains. It would be like being in jail. That is all.

I don’t want to be a prisoner of this world that I love. Of course, there are a lot of unfair things. But I love how the world is today. And I only wish it could be better for everyone! I’m not selfish, I care about people. And ACTA is totally against us. Can you imagine a world where only people with money would do whatever they want? Can you allow this happen to you and your children? I am sorry if you do. Because I can’t let this happen! Freedom is running in my veins. And if revolution is the only to stay free, I am already in.

Sometimes, I wish things to turn like in the movie V For Vendetta. Because this movie inspired me so much… And I know it inspires other too.

You don’t want to be a slave? Find someone, go out in the street, and march. March for YOUR freedom. March and never let everything down. You are not alone. There is a Legion who doesn’t Forgive, who doesn’t Forget. Expect them.

Take care and open your eyes.

Freedom

Hi everyone,

I asked myself if I was going to write about this or not. Finally, I said yes, I’ll write about it because I feel concerned. Now, this is only my opinion as all my other blogs are too.
It’s all about the site Megaupload shut down and how people reacted. Actually I saw people feeling upset by this news, for different reasons, but at least, they didn’t let the Medias tell them what to think this time. They were all feeling like something important about their freedom has been touched. And it’s not right.

I don’t know if I already told you this here but if you know or at least follow me on Twitter, you should know I’m very critic about Medias. Basically I don’t trust anything they say. I always try to take my distance with the subjects and how they cover them and I try to find the better explanation I can find about that subject. For example, when they say someone killed someone else for religious reasons, I’ll look on the internet and try to find if it’s true or not. I think everyone should do that but well…
Anyway. The Medias tried to tell that the founder was a bad hacker and made money on the copyrighted objects uploading on the Megaupload platforms. Yeah… After some research on Google, I learned the money came mostly from the subscriptions and the advertisings on the site… Not really the same…

But I don’t want to talk just about Megaupload and all the drama around it. I want to talk about our freedom. Internet is a place where we can almost do (and be) whatever (whoever) we want. Of course, there’s a dangerous side of this freedom. But it’s also what allowed us to learn more things about the world we live in. Now, you can chat with anyone in the world as long as you keep in mind the hours between you and the other person (so you don’t wait for him/her if he/she sleeps… Yes, I already had this one). You can discover a new artist because his work is on his Facebook/Youtube/Twitter/official site pages. You can watch a movie before you go buy it.

I think all the SOPA/PIPA and anti-piracy (bullshit) laws are just the first step the sates found to control us by using the Internet. Dear politicians, are you scared to see the same revolutions in your occidental streets as you noticed it was during the Arab Spring? Are you scared to see your people finally wake up and ask you some questions about the way you were working for many years? Are you scared to see people using the Internet to claim their rights and organize their lives? Are you scared to face the truth: we are tired of you lies and we want you to be fair and responsible?

Because, at least for me, that’s the point. They didn’t expect that Internet would be such a big thing. Anti-piracy is the first step for another kind of dictatorship. And trust me, I wont accept it for me, but also for my children.

That’s why I pretty agree with the fight of Anonymous. And I’ll talk about that another time.

Take care and keep your eyes open.
