Re: I break the silence: My arrest

I think there is support and all we need to do to obtain it is tell
people *how* they can support you. Whether that is writing letters to
German officials, protesting at German consulates, sending donations,
or just getting this stuff in the press. I suggest you submit your
story to indymedia.de as well as the magazine 2600. If you get
published in 2600, you will reach a community that will be very
concerned about your situation. I think that there is support here,
the key is just how to get it. I don't know about how German law
works, but how hard would it be to advocate with elected
representatives and get this law changed? Can we hit them with a
divestment campaign? Who is responsible for these attacks on tor
operators? Can we begin impeachment proceedings? etc. etc. etc. The
people on the other side of the ocean are lost as where to start, and
that's where we need to focus our attention. And perhaps FSF EU, EFF
EU, or CCC is the place to start with that.
