According to Globo, Google executive Fabio José Silva Coelho has been arrested by federal police in Brazil, after the company refused a judge’s order to remove a controversial political video from YouTube. Judge Flavio Peren ordered Coelho’s arrest for violating Brazil’s election laws, which prohibits attack ads that defame candidates in the lead-up to an election. As Reuters reports, a Google spokesperson says that the company is appealing the decision “because, as a platform, Google is not responsible for the content posted to its site.” We are still waiting for Google to respond to our own inquiry about the arrest, but the company has made similar arguments in the past when confronted with local interpretations of free speech.

(Washington, D.C.) — Amnesty International calls on the Swedish authorities to issue assurances to the United Kingdom and to Julian Assange that if he leaves Ecuador’s London embassy and agrees to go to Sweden to face sexual assault claims, he will not be extradited to the United States in connection with Wikileaks.

In the wake of the Wikileaks co-founder addressing the United Nations and with talks due between British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Ecuadorian officials, the human rights organization said that it was time to break the impasse.

The United States would consider stationing troops on New Zealand soil if our Government asked for them as part of a burgeoning defence relationship, US Secretary of Defence Leon Panetta says.

Mr Panetta left New Zealand on Saturday after a whistlestop visit as part of a broader US push to shore up allegiances in the Pacific to counter China’s rising influence in the region.

Hacktivist group Anonymous is planning to launch a decentralized version of the whistleblower site Wikileaks on Nov. 5, a security vendor reported over the weekend.

Bitdefender cited a post on the AnonNews website indicating the new project is a “massively distributed and decentralized” Wikipedia-style peer-to-peer setup.

“Although little data has been disclosed, it is sure that this webspace will substitute for Wikileaks, a notorious wiki-style portal where key persons have disclosed confidential government information, but which suffered numerous outages and attacks against its server infrastructure,” it said.

It said the Nov. 5 date may mark the start of the beta-testing stage for the new service initially dubbed “TYLER.”

The new site will serve as a publishing platform where users from around the world will be able to dump “evidence of illegality [,] corruption and fraud they have gathered,” Bitdefender quoted Anonymous as saying.

Bitdefender also noted the decentralized, peer-to-peer distribution…

Another World is Possible! #S17 

#OccupyWallStreet was born Sept. 17, 2011, when we occupied the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District to declare: “We are the 99%! We will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%!”

Our message resonated across the globe as countless sister occupations rose up in solidarity. With the whole world watching, a terrified 1% threw everything they could at us, but in so doing, they exposed not only the violence and deceit necessary to maintain systemic inequality, but also the tragic truth that our so-called democratic governments were in fact tools of the very 1% we had organized to resist. In city after city, we were demonized, brutalized, and evicted – but the 1% made one crucial error: in their arrogance, they assumed they’d won.

The 1% can never win; they are (by their own design) hopelessly outnumbered. Another…
