In the past dew days Denmark has announced plans to set up a prison island to keep unwanted criminal migrants out of the mainland while plans to further build a prison in Lithuania to hold expelled migrants leaked (archived). Actions opposing Angela Merkel's ongoing efforts to reverse colonize Europe during this twilight of her political life continue slowly building.
The ongoing anti-Macron protests in France are escalating to include the burning of goverment buildings (archived). The mainstream media has gone from misrepresenting the protest as being about fuel prices to misrepresenting them to being about low standards of living and inequality, while everything including the banners suggests these are anti-Left/Centerist Make France Great Again in nature. The protester are of a more historically French look than is apparently fashionable nowadays while "New French" demographics appear to be avoiding the revolutionaries.
Meanwhile social engineering firm Facebook has stepped in to prevent images from Macron's BLACKED photoshoot from circulating on their platform under the guise that they are too sexual.
Macron has been forced to go straight from the G20 playing Merkel's successor as leader of European Africanization and his own chosen role as Europe's counter to Trump into emergency meetings while France burns against him. As France continues to burn against him, Macron will have to choose between surrendering to the French people or becoming more oppressive than Syria's popularly elected president Assad.
Two Ukrainian vessels were seized by the Russian Navy after the erractically maneuverng ships aggressively approached the Kerch Strait bridge without providing advanced notification required by a 2003 treaty between Russia and Ukraine (archived). Russian personnel treated Ukranians wounded in defense of the 18.1 kilometer long bridge. Ukranian President Poroshenko has responded by declaring martial law while Hawks in NATO governments has proposed opening hostilities outside of the Syrian proxy war sandbox. Russian influenced media outlets are supposing that if a new Crimean war breaks out, it will be the last (archived).
France has errupted in protests against their elected president Macron. Mainstream sources are characterizing the protests as being centered around fuel prices though a cursory scan of banners being held by "yellow jacket" protesters present in photos by these same organizations suggest deeper disatisfactions are involved (archived).
The Australia's Department of Home Affairs published a statement, since deleted annoucing an agreement during a 5Eyes meeting to pursue measures "prevent illegal and illicit content from ever being uploaded"1 and this move among the 5Eyes has been comfirmed by French collaborator Macron who argued for measures rather similar to those being whispered by the Anglophone 5Eyes cartel (archived). Another since deleted memo2 originally published by the Australian Home Affairs referring to conclusions reached during the 5Eyes powwow suggests New Zealand's recent adoption of "Digital Customs Searches" is a preview of things to come for the rest of the totalitarian criminal Anglophone block.

We are as determined to counter these threats online as we are to counter them in the physical world. We note with disappointment that senior digital industry leaders did not accept our invitation to engage on critical issues regarding the illicit use of online spaces at the 2018 Five Country Ministerial meeting. Nevertheless, we reiterate our determination to work together constructively to ensure our response is commensurate to the gravity of the threat. Our citizens expect online spaces to be safe, and are gravely concerned about illegal and illicit online content, particularly the online sexual exploitation of children. We stand united in affirming that the rule of law can and must prevail online. We are committed to an open, safe and secure internet; one that provides global connectivity, better access to services, and new ways to conduct business and share news and information. But we recognise that the anonymous, instantaneous and networked nature of the online environment has magnified the threats we face, and has opened up new vectors for harm. We are determined to ensure that the technologies that have been developed to enhance prosperity and freedom are not exploited by those who seek to promote terrorism and violent extremism; prey upon and exploit our children; or spread disinformation and discord to undermine our democratic institutions. The evolution of digital technology has created new opportunities for widespread transmission of child exploitation material, and for perpetrating the most abhorrent kinds of child sexual exploitation, such as live-streaming of abuse. And it is not only in the recesses of the dark web that such material is accessible. Much is hosted on the most common top‑level domains. Moreover, the growing sophistication of mobile technology has enabled offenders to target children, including through apps that can be used to recruit and coerce children to engage in sexual activity. The low financial cost, and the anonymised nature of this criminal enterprise, is contributing to a growth in the sexual exploitation of children. We must escalate government and industry efforts to stop this. We also affirm the need to build upon efforts to counter the use of the internet by terrorists and violent extremists who continue to exploit online spaces to share materials designed to radicalise and mobilise individuals to violence. These materials are used for recruitment, facilitation, training and financing purposes, often with devastating consequences. Governments and industry have made some progress in tackling this issue. However, the task is far from complete. Terrorists and violent extremists remain able to disseminate propaganda promoting violence, and to use online platforms to radicalise and recruit. And, despite concerted efforts, a great deal of terrorist and violent extremist content remains accessible online to anyone inclined to seek it out. We therefore call upon industry to go further in proactively and innovatively addressing the illicit use of their platforms and applications at pace. In this context we welcome and support the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT). But we urge industry leaders to champion more rapid responses, both under the auspices of the GIFCT and beyond. Digital industry must take responsibility to reduce the availability of online terrorist and violent extremist content across all platforms and applications, and to do so comprehensively. Recognizing the G7 Interior Ministers' statement on terrorism and violent extremism, we echo and amplify their call to action, and we affirm that efforts must extend to all types of illegal and illicit online content. We are also increasingly seeing the use of online spaces to spread disinformation, sow division, and undermine our democratic institutions. The proliferation of interference activities and disinformation undermines the trust of citizens in online communications and information, delegitimizing the benefits and opportunities that communications and social media platforms create. We call upon industry to meet public expectations regarding online safety by: Developing and implementing capabilities to prevent illegal and illicit content from ever being uploaded, and to execute urgent and immediate takedown where there is a failure to prevent upload. Deploying human and automated capabilities to seek out and remove legacy content. Acting on previous commitments to invest in automated capabilities and techniques (including photo DNA tools) to detect, remove and prevent re‑upload of illegal and illicit content, as well as content that violates a company's terms of service. Prioritising the protection of the user by building user safety into the design of all online platforms and services, including new technologies before they are deployed. Building upon successful hash sharing efforts to further assist in proactive removal of illicit content. Setting ambitious industry standards, and increasing assistance to smaller companies in developing and deploying illicit content counter-measures. Building and enhancing capabilities to counter foreign interference and disinformation. Preventing live streaming of child sexual abuse on all platforms. We recognise that governments also have a major role to play in addressing the spread of illicit content online. We commit to build the capacity of non-'five eyes' countries to protect and defend the most vulnerable. We undertake to enhance information flows from government to industry, and work towards overcoming barriers to cross-sectoral collaboration. We agree to ensure our enforcement capabilities, including technical data such as hashes, can be shared with industry to support the development of scalable, Artificial Intelligence-driven solutions. Through the same innovation and cross-sectoral collaboration that has underpinned so many technological advances, the challenge of countering illicit online content is not insurmountable. To focus our collective efforts, we agree to establish a senior officials group charged with monitoring industry progress on the above actions on a quarterly basis and reporting back to us. We welcome digital industry Chief Executive Officers to future meetings of the Five Country Ministerial to update us on their efforts directly.

Home Menu Department of Immigration and Border Protection Search Skip Navigation LinksHome > About Us > National security > Five Country Ministerial 2018 > Access to evidence and encryption Statement of Principles on Access to Evidence and Encryption Preamble The Governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are committed to personal rights and privacy, and support the role of encryption in protecting those rights. Encryption is vital to the digital economy and a secure cyberspace, and to the protection of personal, commercial and government information. However, the increasing use and sophistication of certain encryption designs present challenges for nations in combatting serious crimes and threats to national and global security. Many of the same means of encryption that are being used to protect personal, commercial and government information are also being used by criminals, including child sex offenders, terrorists and organized crime groups to frustrate investigations and avoid detection and prosecution. Privacy laws must prevent arbitrary or unlawful interference, but privacy is not absolute. It is an established principle that appropriate government authorities should be able to seek access to otherwise private information when a court or independent authority has authorized such access based on established legal standards. The same principles have long permitted government authorities to search homes, vehicles, and personal effects with valid legal authority. The increasing gap between the ability of law enforcement to lawfully access data and their ability to acquire and use the content of that data is a pressing international concern that requires urgent, sustained attention and informed discussion on the complexity of the issues and interests at stake. Otherwise, court decisions about legitimate access to data are increasingly rendered meaningless, threatening to undermine the systems of justice established in our democratic nations. Each of the Five Eyes jurisdictions will consider how best to implement the principles of this statement, including with the voluntary cooperation of industry partners. Any response, be it legislative or otherwise, will adhere to requirements for proper authorization and oversight, and to the traditional requirements that access to information is underpinned by warrant or other legal process. We recognize that, in giving effect to these principles, governments may have need to engage with a range of stakeholders, consistent with their domestic environment and legal frameworks. Principles The Attorneys General and Interior Ministers of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand affirm the following principles in relation to encryption. 1. Mutual Responsibility Diminished access to the content of lawfully obtained data is not just an issue for Governments alone, but a mutual responsibility for all stakeholders. Providers of information and communications technology and services - carriers, device manufacturers or over-the-top service providers -– are subject to the law, which can include requirements to assist authorities to lawfully access data, including the content of communications. Safe and secure communities benefit citizens and the companies that operate within them. We are always willing to work with technology providers in order to meet our public safety responsibilities and ensure the ability of citizens to protect their sensitive data. Law enforcement agencies in our countries need technology providers to assist with the execution of lawful orders. Currently there are some challenges arising from the increasing use and sophistication of encryption technology in relation to which further assistance is needed. Governments should recognize that the nature of encryption is such that that there will be situations where access to information is not possible, although such situations should be rare. 2. Rule of law and due process are paramount All governments should ensure that assistance requested from providers is underpinned by the rule of law and due process protections. The principle that access by authorities to the information of private citizens occurs only pursuant to the rule of law and due process is fundamental to maintaining the values of our democratic society in all circumstances – whether in their homes, personal effects, devices, or communications. Access to information, subject to this principle, is critical to the ability of governments to protect our citizens by investigating threats and prosecuting crimes. This lawful access should always be subject to oversight by independent authorities and/or subject to judicial review. 3. Freedom of choice for lawful access solutions The Governments of the Five Eyes encourage information and communications technology service providers to voluntarily establish lawful access solutions to their products and services that they create or operate in our countries. Governments should not favor a particular technology; instead, providers may create customized solutions, tailored to their individual system architectures that are capable of meeting lawful access requirements. Such solutions can be a constructive approach to current challenges. Should governments continue to encounter impediments to lawful access to information necessary to aid the protection of the citizens of our countries, we may pursue technological, enforcement, legislative or other measures to achieve lawful access solutions.

Police in the Netherlands have siezed servers for the Edward Snowden endorsed "Blackbox IronPhone IronChat" app and made a few arrests (archived). Dutch police say they are advertising their hope to make hundreds of more arrests early in the process of digesting the server contents to avoid provoking snitching accusation driven violence among the local outlaws. Earlier this year criminal organizations role playing "law enforcement" in the US and Canada arrested a small business owner for marketing improved privacy enhanced Blackberry communications devices in a similar case.
Germany's Angela Merkel has begun advertising her plan to escape her ruinous political career in these changing, great again times. Her exit will begin this December where she will not seek another term as chairzher of her party and continue through 2021 when she will not seek another term as chancellor. Of course she could lose the chancellorship earlier if her coalition collapses under the weight of the messes she wrought.
The European Union and OECD1 are trying to rouse up outrage over programs that provide a paths to citizenship in return for financial investment in the immigrant's new homeland (archived). The Pantsuitists are crying that these programs present a threat to "European Security" because they allow anyone with enough money a route to becoming "European", which is they suppose is a thing terrorists want to do.
While the Pantsuits attempt to villianize these voluntary and mutually beneficial programs, their promotion of human trafficking in concert with regional and municipal level re-settlement quotas betrays their complete lack of fucks to give about "European Security"… for any reasonable definitions of security.
A pantsuit NGO started after WWII initially directed towards rebuilding Europe which now bullies independent nation-states with "Lets get along"-ism and promotes pathological "people pleasing" type behaviors at the expense of the quality of life experienced by actual persons. ↩
Reports are emerging that Serbia has begun negotations with breakaway Kosovo in order to swap land along the border so that a number of ethnic Serbs won't have to suffer the indignity of living in Kosovo anymore (archived). Serbia and breakaway Kosovo were functionally separated during a conflict which saw the Clinton Global Initiative1 engage in widespread bombing. During that conflict the Serbs downed at least one "stealth" aircraft under Clinton's command.
Then known as the 'Bill' Clinton administration ↩
