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.

Anlass war das Ermittlungsverfahren [...] der BAW gegen zuletzt 18 Personen wegen des Verdachts der Bildung einer terroristischen Vereinigung. Vorgeworfen werden dieser Vereinigung diverse v.a. Brandanschläge in den Regionen Hamburg und Berlin zwischen 2005 und 2007. Mitte Juni 2007 übermittelte die BAW im Rahmen der Akteneinsicht einen "Auszug" der Ermittlungsakten.

"Παρακολούθηση για τις αρχές και το παρακράτος σημαίνει να ελέγχονται συστηματικά αλλά και αποσπασματικά οι κινήσεις και οι ενέργειες προσώπων ή ομάδων, χωρίς αυτοί να το γνωρίζουν ή να έχουν ενημερωθεί σχετικά. Αντιπαρακολούθηση είναι κάθε τακτική που βοηθά στο να αποφεύγεται ή να γίνεται πολύ δύσκολος ο έλεγχος μέσω της παρακολούθησης."

"A burner phone is a single-use phone, unattached to your identity, which can theoretically be used to communicate anonymously in situations where communications may be monitored. Whether or not using a burner phone is itself a “best practice” is up for debate, but if you’ve made the choice to use one, there are several things you should keep in mind."

Παρόλο που υπάρχουν αρκετές αμφιβολίες για το εάν η χρήση τους είναι σωστή ή όχι, εάν πήρες την απόφαση να χρησιμοποιήσεις ένα υπάρχουν κάποια πράγματα τα οποία ίσως χρειαστεί να σκεφτείς."

"Activists in Belarus are subject to unchecked government surveillance with no independent oversight. The government uses telecoms companies to facilitate surveillance by demanding direct, remote-control access to customer communications and data. Against the background of an already restrictive legal environment, this creates a chilling effect that forces activists out of public life."
Other languages
(ru) Гражданское общество, секретность и слежка в Беларуси
"Правовая база, регулирующая порядок негласного наблюдения в Беларуси, характеризуется отсутствием соответствующих гарантий безопасности, и позволяет властям осуществлять широкомасштабную слежку практически без всякого обоснования. И хотя фактически любой человек может стать объектом слежки, почти невозможно узнать, ведётся ли за ним слежка сейчас, или она велась ранее. Подобная неопределённость оказывает сковывающий эффект на правозащитников, оппозиционных политиков, юристов и активистов, и ограничивает их возможности в реализации своих прав, в том числе права на неприкосновенность частной жизни, свободу объединений, свободу мирных собраний и свободу выражения мнений."

"O Signal é um serviço de mensagens criptografadas que existe em diferentes formas há cerca de 10 anos. Desde então, tenho visto o software ser amplamente adotado por redes anarquistas no Canadá e nos Estados Unidos. Cada vez mais, para melhor e pior, nossas conversas interpessoais e em grupo passaram para a plataforma do Signal, na medida em que se tornou a maneira dominante pela qual anarquistas se comunicam neste continente, com muito pouco debate público sobre as implicações."

"Телефоны и телефонная связь уже давно являются рядовыми вещами в нашей повседневной жизни. И как часто случается с рядовыми повседневными вещами — сейчас сотовые телефоны (использование стационарных телефонов в вашей революционной деятельности следует исключить полностью) встроены в плотную сеть контроля, окутывающую нас со всех сторон. Уже ни для кого не секрет, что телефон — это не только удобное средство срочной связи, но и прекрасная возможность для спецслужб следить за их владельцами. Об этом сказано уже много, и многие рядовые участники анархистского движения, очевидно, уже имеют свой набор правил использования телефонов для связи с товарищами и семьей. Тем не менее, за незнанием и неследованиям некоторым правилам их использования, телефоны продолжают быть немыми свидетелями нашей деятельности и врагами культуры безопасности."

"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."

(fr) Vivre à nu: La surveillance au Canada
"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."
