The Counter-surveillance resource center is a searchable database of resources on evading targeted surveillance. We want to help anarchists and other rebels acquire a practical understanding of the surveillance threats they may face in their struggles and in their lives. We prefer resources that are easy to understand and written by friends.

"Hace algunas semanas se reportaba en la Provincia de Arauco el avistamiento de aviones militares sobrevolando constantemente el territorio, finalmente se pudo identificar el avión como un CASA C-295 Persuader. A esto se suma que desde el mes de mayo se registran vuelos del drone Hermes 900 de la Fuerza Aérea sobre la ciudad de Temuco, pero ya desde el año 2014 comunidades mapuche vienen denunciando el uso de aeronaves no tripuladas para vigilar el Wallmapu. Debido a esto decidimos escribir esta entrada que recopila diversos drones de categoría militar que poseen las distintas ramas de las fuerzas armadas junto a los drones civiles más utilizados para tareas de vigilancia."

"Law enforcement surveillance isn’t always secret. These technologies can be discovered in news articles and government meeting agendas, in company press releases and social media posts. It just hasn’t been aggregated before. Through a combination of crowdsourcing and data journalism, we are creating the largest-ever repository of information on which law enforcement agencies are using what surveillance technologies."

"[A] shotgun is your best bet at taking down a drone. Preferably one loaded with the largest spread ammunition you can find. [...] Of course not all methods of taking out a drone need to involve literal firearms. [...] Paintballs are a no-go. [...] Airsoft guns and other plastic-pellet guns are worthless. [...] Slingshots will likely work - again, assuming you can hit. [...] Last but not least, you never want to underestimate the power of just throwing crap. A rock, a baseball, anything you can fling straight, accurate, and fast."

"EFF’s “Street-Level Surveillance” project shines light on the advanced surveillance technologies that law enforcement agencies routinely deploy in our communities. These resources are designed for members of the public, advocacy organizations, journalists, defense attorneys, and policymakers who often are not getting the straight story from police representatives or the vendors marketing this equipment."

"Technopolice est une campagne visant à documenter et à lutter contre le déploiement de nouvelles technologies policières (drones, reconnaissance faciale, vidéosurveillance automatisée, police prédictive...). Nous avons pour cela créé et mis à disposition plusieurs outils (un forum, un site, une base documentaire...) pour permettre à chacune et chacun de se saisir de ces questions."

"Transparent Lives: Surveillance in Canada details nine key trends in the processing of personal information, trends that are evident throughout the world. They affect all Canadians, but few citizens are aware of how, when, for what purpose, or with what consequences their personal data are used by large organizations. Hence the title: Transparent Lives. This book demonstrates that our lives are open and visible to organizations as never before and that in every area of life—as citizens, consumers, workers, and travellers—this makes a difference."

"Vivre à nu : la surveillance au Canada expose neuf grandes tendances qui sont observées dans le traitement des renseignements personnels partout dans le monde. Ces tendances touchent tous les Canadiens, mais peu d’entre eux savent comment, quand et à quelles fins leurs données personnelles sont utilisées par les grandes organisations et quelles sont les conséquences de cette utilisation. Voilà pourquoi cet ouvrage est intitulé Vivre à nu ; il démontre que nos vies sont plus que jamais ouvertes et visibles pour les organismes et que cette visibilité a de réels effets sur chaque sphère de notre vie, que nous soyons citoyens, consommateurs, travailleurs ou voyageurs."
