THE NEW PASTIME AGAINST SURVEILLANCE

Q&A

Are we anti-American?
By no means. We are neither for, nor against any state or country. We don’t represent any national interest either. We only insist on the basic liberties and human rights of our formerly free and democratic societies.

What does “Akkurater Widerstand” mean?
“Widerstand” is the German word for resistance. “Akkurat” sounds like “accurate”, but implies a kind of vintage meaning. Let’s just say it’s another awkward German word like “Fahrvergnügen”.

Is this legal?
For sure! We’re ordinary people, not hackers. We aren’t nerds or geeks, but an online citizens’ initiative. We do nothing other than produce simple data. An example: we all enter “Edward Snowden” as a new contact into our smartphones or tablets. Surveillance administrators will take notice. In this way, we’re sending our “accurate regards” to NSA & Colleagues.

Are we technophobic?
Not at all. New Technologies are offering fascinating options – from making our daily lives more comfortable to solving genuine challenges. We just don’t want to pay for it by giving up our privacy.

Why social media?
Our campaign needs to be as visible as possible to data collectors, companies and intelligence agencies. Therefore, we want to spread across channels and platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc. To ensure your data privacy, we have set up “Shariff” buttons that prevent automated tracking.

Any other questions?
Please send us an email and we’ll get back to you asap. If possible, we’ll publish new questions and answers right here on our page.

We're fighting back against the illegal mass surveillance by the intelligence agencies with a simple trick: Our online-campaigns generate misleading data tracks. An example: Suddenly loads more people are searching the internet for baby clothes than usual. Sounds silly, but it isn't. The systems will wrongly calculate a higher birth rate. With just a few clicks we will throw a spanner in the surveillance works and blur our profiles. – It's fun, legal and so easy even my granny can join in. Will you come along, too?
