FREE KEVIN Demonstrations Today!

When justice is denied, and any class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them neither persons nor property will be safe. - Fredrick Douglas, 1886

The above quote is engraved in the side of the Federal Courthouse in Boston, It seemed appropriate for the circumstances.

contributed by Macki
At approximately 2pm local time on Friday, June 4th, people will gather outside at least 16 Federal Courthouses across the country to protest the continued incarceration of Kevin Mitnick. The demonstrations hope to bring attention to the fact that

- Kevin has been denied a bail hearing
- Lack of access by the defense to critical evidence
- The outrageous claims by software companies as to the amounts of damages caused by copying software.
- When this was reported by the media the court blocked access to the defense to further information.

Kevin Mitnick has never been accused of being violent, malicious, or getting any sort of compensation for his acts and yet he has been in jail for over four years. Longer than most armed robbers or rapists.

It is hoped that these peaceful demonstrations can increase public awareness of this issue and hopefully positively influence his sentencing hearing scheduled for June 14th.

Already over, the demonstration in front of the US Embassy in Moscow has been labeled a huge success. This photo taken prior to the event shows some folks from Civil Hackers' School in Moscow and a conspicuously placed FREE KEVIN Sticker.

The demonstration in Washington DC is going to try like hell to webcast the event but their resources are limited. You can try here or here. Hopefully one of them will work.

There are rumors that several of the demonstrations, especially the one in Atlanta which is the first event of Summercon, will be broadcast live on CNN. We will do our best to bring you updates as necessary.

Late Update
The New York demonstration had over 50 attendees and was a huge succes. They where even able to schedule a Sky Writer to write FREE KEVIN over central Park.

The Philidelphia demonstartion is also attempting to web cast their event. We do not know if they where succesful but we do know that they made it on the local TV news broadcast.

Demonstrations are also happening spontaneously in cities that are not listed on the official web page. HNN has received reports of one such demonstration taking place in Boston.

If you where at a demonstration today send us a report of how it went. If you have pictures we would love to see them.

contributed by Seraphic Artifex
German officials have released a statement on crypto policy. The statement says that for the worldwide protection against electronic interception and economic espionage that the strongest crypto available will be allowed to be used by German citizens. In addition the crypto development community within Germany will be supported and nurtured to create superior crypto products. The statement claims that the need of personal privacy and the protection e-commerce overrides any possible use crypto may have for criminals.
