A quick heads up...
My name is Jim and I'm in nyc
regularly. The last time I was there I helped out with the livestream,
where I met Thorin and Dwayne. I'm also in Chicago and very active with
Late yesterday I had a brief personal email exchange with Dwayne,
for the first time. A few hours later I received a gmail alert saying that my account was accessed twice in nyc at about the same
time I was accessing it here. Google apparently sends these notices when
it recognizes something that looks fishy to them along with a
suggestion to change your password immediately. I have never received one before.
What this means is that either someone in nyc coincidentally figured
out my very secure password and hacked into my account late last night for no apparent
reason, or someone did so after seeing my
exchange with Dwayne.
If the latter, it would indicate that at least some people in nyc's personal emails
are being watched by either hackers or law enforcement. As you
all probably know, secret 'sneak and peek' investigations as well as warrant-less National Security Letters are permitted by
the Patriot Act, so it could be law enforcement or any hacker trolling for incriminating info about the movement.
I could be totally off on this, but it is one hell of a coincidence.
I am absolutely not a conspiracy theorist, but the timing of this breach feels very suspicious to me.
If anyone has a relevant contact at the NLG or
ACLU, please forward this their way. It may of use if they are analyzing
patterns of similar occurrences for future FOIA requests.
Be safe and stay strong...
