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.

"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/I (Autistici/Inventati, pronounced [au’tistiʧi]-[iŋ’vɛntati], or [iŋvɛn’tati]) was born in 2001 from an encounter of individuals and collectives of the autonomous anticapitalist movement interested in technology and active in the digital rights struggle. We believe that this world is far from being the best world possible. We react by providing a platform and tools for digital self-defense addressing the need of secure, free communication and privacy for activists and other individuals."

"A/I (che sta per autistici.org / inventati.org) nasce nel 2001 dall’incontro di individualità e collettivi provenienti dal mondo antagonista e anticapitalista, impegnati a lavorare con le tecnologie e attivi nella lotta per i diritti digitali. Crediamo che questo non sia affatto il migliore dei mondi possibili. La nostra risposta è offrire ad attivisti, gruppi e collettivi piattaforme per una comunicazione più libera e strumenti digitali per l’autodifesa della privacy."

"These devices take different forms : microphones, cameras, geolocation devices. Targeted spaces can be all the spaces we go through : buildings, vehicles, public space. We noticed the lack of informations available around us concerning this kind of surveillance. What is the real use of these devices by intelligence agencies? Which kind of devices are used? In which contexts? How efficiently? What can we do to oppose this kind of surveillance?"

"Les dispositifs en question sont variés : microphones, caméras, balises de localisation. Les espaces visés peuvent être tous les espaces qu’on traverse : bâtiments, véhicules, espace public. On a constaté le manque d’informations disponibles autour de nous sur ce type de surveillance. Quelle est l’utilisation réelle de ces dispositifs par les services de renseignement ? Quels types de dispositifs sont utilisés ? Dans quels contextes ? Avec quelle efficacité ? Quels moyens mettre en place pour contrer ce type de surveillance ?"

"Dans les rues, dans les transports en commun, devant les commerces et les écoles... Les caméras se multiplient ! La vidéo-surveillance enregistre nos faits et gestes au quotidien, alors que les dispositifs de contrôle ne cessent de s’intensifier et de se perfectionner. Dans ce contexte, "Sous-surveillance.net" propose un outil de lutte. Ce projet permet à chaque ville de se doter facilement d’un site local de cartographie des caméras, publiques comme privées, qui filment l’espace public."
