Permanent Destruction of Louisiana Marshland (tags)
The Louisiana marshland is being permanently destroyed by the multi-billion dollar profiting oil companies in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster. The biggest user of oil, the US military, should be abolished as it simply exists to maximize profits of the capitalist class. The second biggest user is the private passenger auto which must be replaced with massive free public transportation. The oil companies actually claimed they had this disaster under control. The marshlands need an 80 mile levy built TODAY to save the coastal areas. British Petroleum makes multi-billion dollars a year in profit and must pay for the levies, cleanup, lost wages, lost businesses and everything else 100% TODAY. Brasschecktv has the story.

SF-IMC has been allowing Google to track you (tags)
SF-IMC for an unknown period of time has included code in their web pages that allowed the capitalists at Google to track their site visitors, as well as allowing Google to set and read cookies on users' machines. Other Indymedia tech people called this out on Thanksgiving day. SF-IMC tried to play it off like those who questioned allowing a giant internet company to track their site's users were "paranoid", but SF-IMC does appear to have come to its senses and deleted the offending code. Still, there remain many unanswered questions as to the sum of the information Google was allowed to acquire through this code and for how long this tracking had been going on. As SF-IMC displays open hostility toward what they call the "fetishization of local control and autonomy of individual indymedia sites" and hopes to impose their vision of editorial policy network-wide, an explanation for such cooperation with a corporate entity should be forthcoming.
A new low in drug testing (tags)
The government is apparently planning to install face-scanning cameras and urinalysis machines in some public urinals. It sounds strange, but it's technically feasible. We need to spread the word about this so it doesn't become widespread.

Big Brother Is Watching You - And Documenting (tags)
One would think that preserving privacy of the users, whose moves are so meticulously recorded, would be keenly observed at eBay, whose good name in the Internet community is one of its prime assets. But in the U.S. of the post 9/11 and pre-Gulf War II era, helping the "security forces" is considered a supreme act of patriotism. Who needs a subpoena?
