Παρουσίαση-συζήτηση: “Περί αποκέντρωσης και άλλων δαιμονίων”

Παρουσίαση της μπροσούρας “Περί αποκέντρωσης και άλλων δαιμονίων” και συζήτηση για την αποκέντρωση των κινηματικών υποδομών.Οι υποδομές του κινήματος μπορούν να νοηθούν ως τα θεμέλια αλλά και οι μοχλοί του. Οι καταλήψεις και τα τυπογραφεία. Τα ραδιόφωνα και τα ιντερνετικά εγχειρήματα. Ομάδες αλληλοβοήθειας, αυτομάθησης και αυτοάμυνας σε γειτονιές. Δεν χρειαζόμαστε απλά περισσότερα, χρειαζόμαστε έναν γαλαξία από αυτόνομες αυτοοργανωμένες δομές. Η αποκέντρωσή τους, ως έμπρακτη κατάργηση του συγκεντρωτισμού, μας θωρακίζει απέναντι στην κρατική καταστολή καθώς μειώνει τα μοναδικά σημεία αποτυχίας. Ενισχύει την διαφορετικότητα, την πολυμορφία και τον πλουραλισμό, στοιχεία απαραίτητα στις απαντήσεις που δίνουμε κοινωνικά. Συνυφαίνει ένα ισχυρότερο πλαίσιο τεχνογνωσίας και...

Regarding phishing attempt to retrieve @espiv.net email passwords

We noticed that in the last hours a phishing email was sent to a lot of espiv email addresses. The malicious email was inducing users to login to check for new email messages. However the link to login was in a third party server, and it was not https://mail.espiv.net. The webpage that it lead to, was identical with the login page of espiv webmail. In case somebody tried to login at this page, the malicious site would have in their possession, the credentials of this user.You should not, in any case, try to login at this site. Always check the...

Newsletter February 2016

Greetings everyone,following our last newsletter, we would like to inform you that after the merge of squat.gr and espiv.net[1], there is the possibility to choose whichever domain you wish between the two (squat.gr or espivblogs.net) when composing a hosting request to create a blog. For the time being though you cannot create squat.gr mails and mailing lists.[Mixed content]For some time now, the browsers have been blocking what is called “mixed content”, namely when there is http element (say a picture) on an https page, and it is a common problem on the web. To get around this problem one has...

squat.gr and espiv.net under same administration collective

espiv.net and squat.gr are now under the same administration collective. Both groups were always in close communication exchanging knowledge/expertise and were both supporting each other by technical means. Besides the geographical adjacency, we, “people” from both groups, share the same political values, placing ourselves into the competitive/antiauthoritarian/anticapitalist movement.Recently, we decided to unify our infrastructures due to reduced people dynamics in one of the projects. From now on, a unified administration collective, cybrigade (espiv), will be responsible for both projects. At the moment, basic services that we are offering will remain as-is. However, terms of services will change to the ones...

[Re-published] Security is not a crime

6 Jan, 2015On Tuesday December 16th, a large police operation took place in the Spanish State. Fourteen houses and social centers were raided in Barcelona, Sabadell, Manresa, and Madrid. Books, leaflets, computers were seized and eleven people were arrested and sent to the Audiencia Nacional, a special court handling issues of “national interest”, in Madrid. They are accused of incorporation, promotion, management, and membership of a terrorist organisation. However, lawyers for the defence denounce a lack of transparency, saying that their clients have had to make statements without knowing what they are accused of. “[They] speak of terrorism without specifying...
