Cyber-Activists Strike Liberal Party Website

Cyber-Activists Strike Australian Liberal Party Website

Nauru Hunger Striker Solidarity

At 9am this morning (Australian East Coast time), Cyber activists
from across the world started their solidarity sit-in on the
websites for DIMIA and the Liberal Party. They vow to keeping
jamming these websites whilst people are starving to death on Nauru
at the hands of Liberal party policy.

Shortly after 9am the original website promoting the electronic
civil disobedience was taken offline, but it wasn't very long before
a number of mirror sites sprung up over the internet. One of the
great advantages of the internet are decentralised information
flows. If one node is attacked or threatened, other nodes can
instantly become active. As it is with this cyber sit-in in which
all participants are acting completely autonomously.

Some of the websites now hosting the cyber sit-in include:

Many cyber activists are also encouraging people to create their own
web pages and host the sit-in themselves.

Will the government pay attention? How many people will have to die
at the hands of the Australian government's policies before
Australians demand accountability? Will government officials meet
with the asylum seekers or will they die slowly and painfully? All
Australians are urged to phone DIMIA urging freedom for the hunger
striking asylum seekers.

It is now taking close to 30 seconds to load a DIMIA web page and
this time period will increase dramatically in the coming days.
