Permalink Russia bans forced biometrics collection

A new law forbids discriminating against those who refuse to provide such data | Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a bill that regulates the collection and use of the biometric data of the country’s citizens.  The legislation approved by Putin on Thursday introduces a new state-operated Unified Biometrics System (UBS), set to be created next year. The UBS will handle all biometrics collected from Russian nationals, including face images and voice samples. However, the law prohibits forcibly collecting such data.  Russians seeking to maintain the privacy of their biometric data will be able to opt out of having it collected. They will also be able to easily have it deleted from the system should they change their minds if it has already been gathered. The legislation also outlaws any discrimination against those who decide not to provide such information, stating that a refusal cannot be used as grounds for denying an individual state-provided services or employment.  Effectively, the law makes the state the sole operator of biometric data in the country. Previously, any legal entity was able to collect and use such data in Russia. The legislation also restricts the participation of foreign actors in biometrics collection, enabling only state-owned entities to gather such data.

According to the country's government, the currency "serves as both a medium of exchange and a store of value, offering better payment prospects in retail transactions when compared to cash payments."

West Jerusalem’s new national security chief has ordered the removal of “terror flags” from public places [From the loony bin:] 💬 “It is inconceivable that lawbreakers will wave terror flags, incite and encourage terrorism,” Ben-Gvir said on Sunday night in a statement cited by the Jerusalem Post. “I have issued instructions for the removal of the flags, which support terrorism, from the public space and to stop incitement against the state of Israel.”  The nationalist official, who already stirred controversy shortly after taking office by visiting the Temple Mount compound last week, dismissed concern that his flag order would infringe on civil liberties, arguing that freedom of expression “does not extend to identifying with a terrorist” and those who seek to harm Israeli soldiers.  The move came after Palestinian flags were flown at an anti-government protest on Saturday night in Tel Aviv. Concerns also were raised after the release of Israel’s longest-serving Palestinian prisoner, Karim Younis, who was convicted in 1983 of kidnapping and murdering an Israeli soldier. Younis waved a Palestinian flag as he returned home to a celebration in northern Israel’s Ara village.  Netanyahu’s government also has announced a series of punishments of the Palestinian Authority (PA) for seeking a legal opinion from the UN’s International Court of Justice on the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.

Operation Cast Lead and the Dismembering of a People WEBAMP Sound: Two days after Christmas in 2008, the isolated and densely populated city of Gaza was visited by volley upon volley of deadly missile and mortar fire. The intense bombardment of what has been described by the United Nations Development Programme as "one of the most densely populated places on earth" continued unabated for a period of three weeks. By the end of the assault, over 1,400 Palestinians had been killed and more than 5,000 wounded, many seriously. Between three and four hundred of the dead were children. A total of 13 Israelis were killed during the same time, four of them by the action of their own troops. This post offers a fifth anniversary commemoration of this tragic and highly destructive assault which commenced on the 27th December 2008 and ended on the 18th January 2009. It offers an account of pivotal events in the history of Israel/Palestine from 1947 to the present through the reflections of a number of informed and articulate commentators.

So too has the Australian government finally wakened up to demand the end of the barbaric mistreatment. In Latin America, North America, and other parts of the world, the clamor for justice is growing.  Only two weeks ago, major newspapers in the United States and Europe published joint editorial statements urging the Biden Administration to end the imprisonment of Assange, stating that “publishing is not a crime”. That renewed appeal for freedom is a reflection of the swelling sea-change in public support around the world for Julian Assange.  John Shipton says he is not “into hope” in the superficial meaning of the word. By that, he means a sort of cheap hope, blithe optimism, or cheery, glib ignorance. A sort of “consumerist hope” that is fickle and vanishes at the slightest obstacle.  However, what he displays in his tenacious, resilient, courageous support for his son is a much deeper hope. One of faith and commitment in the face of immense adversity. That strength inspires profound hope. An audacious hope. One that defiantly smiles in the face of cold barbarity. The kind of hope that can break chains. It is way past time that Julian Assange should be freed so that he can “come home to his kids”.

Permalink Thoughtcrime is now a reality in Britain

Andrew Tettenborn (Spiked!) A recent event in suburban Birmingham offers a stark reminder of the threat to free speech posed by Britain’s censorious state. | Earlier this month, Isabel Vaughan-Spruce was standing silently in a public street. She was doing, saying and displaying absolutely nothing, apparently lost in thought. A policeman approached her. He asked if she was inwardly praying. When she said she might have been, he immediately arrested her, took her to a police station and searched her. Last week, Vaughan-Spruce was told she faces prosecution.  How did this happen? First, Vaughan-Spruce was known to be a member of a pro-life organisation. And second, she was within 150 metres of an abortion clinic, inside a so-called buffer zone. In September, Birmingham City Council introduced a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), which makes any ‘act of approval or disapproval’ toward abortion in the surroundings of the clinic a criminal offence, on pain of a £1,000 fine. This restriction applies to any expression related to abortion services, by any method: whether by graphic, verbal or written means, prayer or counselling, or in any other way. So Vaughan-Spruce’s alleged silent prayer was apparently enough. Someone had disapproved of her presence and asked the police to get rid of her. All the ploddingly literal-minded copper needed was Vaughan-Spruce’s admission that she might have been privately communing with her god and might therefore have been illegally praying in a restricted area.  Whatever your view on abortion, even if you are strongly pro-choice, this whole episode should worry you immensely. The implications for personal liberty are terrifying. If an arrest for silent prayer is not an instance of Orwellian ‘thoughtcrime’, then I don’t know what is.

However, the plan involves prohibiting where residents of Oxford can drive (unless they have the proper paperwork) by breaking the city into six zones. Predictably, the concept has proven to be wildly unpopular with some of the locals. Over the last week, residents have been up in arms about the scheme... According to the Oxfordshire County Council's own website, "traffic filtering" involves stopping vehicles from moving through selected checkpoints by leveraging a network of preexisting automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras. While locals will be eligible to purchase permits that will allow them to drive between the zones "up to 100 days per year," exceeding this limit will result in fines. That means if you commute daily via your own car, you're already guaranteed to exceed the permitted allotment -- assuming you were actually able to get accredited in the first place.

Permalink Rise of radical anti-government sentiment in Germany

REDACTED P6 (КОТËЛ #6) | 🇩🇪 The rise of radical anti-government sentiment in Germany, which would sooner or later lead to an attempted coup or revolution, had long been known in Russia. If this information reached the AP (and it did), it was also in other key organisations. The phenomena in German society were seen as a rise in right-wing and neo-Nazi sentiment that began years ago, caused in part by the mass migration of Turks and other Muslim peoples to the Fatherland. The process escalated under Angela Merkel, who opened the migration gates even wider, accelerated sharply during the period of covid restrictions and rocketed upwards when the German economy began to have big problems because of the gas war and anti-Russian sanctions.  This is not the first time that Germans who are ready and preparing for a coup have been caught in Germany in recent years. The Bundeswehr is considered particularly problematic. Helping the Germans to catch the rebels is the American intelligence services, which control the Internet and the darknet more closely than the Europeans. All of this has also long been known in Russia - as well as the fact that the protest potential of the Nazis and right-wing extremists in Germany is almost inexhaustible and cannot be caught by everyone. However, the Kremlin did not see any way to take advantage of the situation, despite the obvious sympathies of the discontented with Russia and Vladimir Putin. The obvious parallels with the 1930s and the emergence of a super-national state in the place of a battered Germany were rather alarming.  As for the current arrests, the AP and, as it is reported, the Foreign Ministry, rather showily. It is expected that the right-wing parties, in particular the ADH, which won the elections but lost out in the formation of the left-wing government coalition, will be blamed. Not forgetting to call them "Russian agents". In this context, the already widespread information that the conspirators have tried to establish links with Russian structures, but have received no response, sounds strange.

Russian Demiurge (Русский Демиург) | Something Wicked This Way Comes: Climate quarantines. | As predicted and feared, a quarantine over COVID is turning into a quarantine over climate change, and legal action is to be taken in the UK.  Oxfordshire County Council has approved plans to effectively isolate residents in one of six zones because of 'global warming'. Under the new scheme, electronic gates would be installed on key roads leading in and out of the city, confining residents to their own areas. If a resident wanted to leave their zone, they would first need permission from the Council, which must decide who is worthy of freedom and who is not. For those seeking freedom, they would first have to register their vehicle details with the council, which would then track their movements with smart cameras across the city. If you qualify, you can leave your area for a maximum of 100 days a year. Oh, and for families with two cars, both vehicles will count as one, which means you will have to split the journeys. The county council's tourism manager has insisted that the controversial plan will be implemented, whether people like it or not. People can travel freely in their own neighbourhood and can apply for filter permits to other neighbours as well, the chief said, but reiterated that this is only possible up to 100 days a year.  As Eric Worrall writes, "For almost a thousand years Oxford University has been a beacon of intellectual freedom. A number of leading Oxford intellectuals have been hanged or otherwise persecuted over the centuries because of their resistance to authoritarianism. So it seems incredibly sad that the heirs to this proud tradition seem so willing to turn their backs on the freedoms that their predecessors sometimes gave their lives to defend. And, as British commentator Neil Oliver says, "Anyone who puts up with this deserves whatever overlords plan next." These Oxford 'Climate Quarantines' are about control. For those who have not yet realised this, prepare for shackles and the tightening of the noose around your necks; similarly, for those who are not working towards freedom now, mentally prepare for slavery, because if you remain within their system, this future - unlike 'global warming' - is baked in, inevitable.
