"... and the Truth shall set you free."

" The only enemy that humankind has ever had, is the devotion to ignorance ..."

"The only thing keeping the public from using its numbers to force an end to imperialist war-mongering is that most people lack a deep understanding of how horrific and widespread it is. And the only reason they lack that understanding is because of corporate media malpractice" Caitlin Johnstone

N.B.: For security reasons e-mails from ECOTERRA are very rarely ever sent to these mailing lists with attachments. If you happen to receive a message with an e-mail attachment,please be aware that our sender address might have been spoofed and we advise you to check that mail carefully without first opening the attachment. If you suddenly don't receive mails from the usual list any more, but didn't unsubscribe, your mailbox or your ISP might have been tampered with by (hidden) censorship - please let us know and re-subscribe. Sorry, but if your e-mail address bounces several times, your address will be unsubscribed
since we have to keep a rather strict unsubscription policy. Please re-subscribe, if you suddenly don't receive your mails from the specific ListServ. Avoid having your e-mail with ISPs, who are on the list of fraudulent and/or notorious mail interceptors and trackers like verizon, aol, gmail, yahoo, msn, hotmail etc.

To the deaf still on aol/yahoo/gmail etc.: Use at least https://www.mailvelope.com/

Stop searching with Google! Also DuckDuckGo has now been compromised (Amazon).

Especially for users of anything "GOOGLE" it is recommended to do a google-detox - see: https://datadetox.myshadow.org/en/home

Better search with

https://www.ecosia.com - each search contributes to tree planting !!!
https://www.startpage.com, it delivers 100% Google results in total privacy.

https://www.gibiru.com, which delivers 100% private results from google and other search engines.
Check out former AltaVista, which is now yahoo, but doesn't follow google censorship.

A guide to staying online if the internet or social media gets blocked in your country

ALERT: Hackers are buying domain names with a similar web address to the email service providers Tutanota and Protonmail, and creating clone login pages. A user who logs into one of these fake pages will have compromised their login details and given hackers access to their accounts.

The cybersecurity research group CERTFA - the Computer Emergency Response Team - has reported an increase in sophisticated phishing attacks against journalists and human rights defenders. These attacks, which are global, have also targeted individuals who use more robust email providers or two-step verification (2FA) for their email and social media accounts.

Other reports detail how journalists and activists using Yahoo and Gmail were sent emails appearing to be from those email service providers, stating that there had been an unauthorized attempt to access the account. The email asked journalists to enter their email and password details, which hackers were able to check in real time and send out a fake two-step verification request either as a SMS, via the authenticator app, or via push notifications. At least two different groups of hackers were able to gain access to accounts and constantly monitor communications.

For good reason you will not find us on fascistbook, google+, twitter or any other of those in reality asocial and dangerous surveillance media.

Ad-mails (spam or UBE/UCE) are terrible, but don't use ISP- or web-based filters, since you never know their criteria. Stay in control and install the anti-virus, anti-spam and firewall yourself - they are unfortunately necessary in these days - and maintain them yourself on your system! If you are forced to install pre-filtering then choose a service like https://www.junkemailfilter.com/ who guarantees your mail safety, supports the EFF and the work of progressive, non-profit NGOs.

IMPORTANT: To ensure delivery of your mails, please add "@ecoterra-international.org" and "@ecoterra.net" to your address book and the "whitelist" of your spam-filter. Tell your ISP or company's IT group to allow this addresses to pass through any filtering software they may have set up. If our e-mails don't reach your Inbox, also look in your "Bulk-Mail" or "Junk-Mail" folder. If you write to us and you don't receive a response within two working days, please send your mail again - it most likely was intercepted or got lost on the way.

Try as much as possible to use a secure VPN like https://cryptostorm.is, encrypted e-mail (PGP, GnuPG) see: https://www.enigmail.net/home/index.php and TOR - see: https:www.torproject.org/about/overview.html.en but read also the CAVEAT on TOR on this website.

The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled <https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:62010CJ0070:EN:HTML> on 24 November 2011 already that generalized content filtering violates fundamental rights. The court has thereby recognized the impact of Internet filtering on freedom of expression and freedom of information.
In addition the European Court of Justice <https://www.privacyinternational.org/sites/privacyinternational.org/files/downloads/press-releases/216980523-judgment-of-the-ecj-in-digital-rights-ireland-data-retention-challenge.pdf> invalidated on 08. April 2014 the European Union's 2006 Data Retention Directive policy, ruling that indiscriminate data retention is completely unacceptable.
These are crucial steps forward in the defence of Internet freedom. <https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:62010CJ0070:EN:HTML>
Europe's top court, the European Union Court of Justice (ECJ), also decided on May 13 2014 <https://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/13/eu-google-dataprotection-idUSL6N0NZ23Q20140513> that People must be able to remove their digital traces from the Internet and can ask e.g. Google to delete sensitive information from its Internet search results.

The United Nations' top official for counter-terrorism and human rights (known as the Special Rapporteur) issued a formal report <https://www.firstlook.org/theintercept/document/2014/10/15/un-report-human-rights-terrorism/> to the U.N. General Assembly on 15. October 2014 that condemns mass electronic surveillance as a clear violation of core privacy rights guaranteed by multiple treaties and conventions. "The hard truth is that the use of mass surveillance technology effectively does away with the right to privacy of communications on the Internet altogether," the report concluded.
