Global Jam Echelon Day

Echelon is a vast mythical eavesdropping network set up by various governments including the US, UK, Canada, Australia and others in order to monitor the world's electronic communications (telephone, email, fax, etc.) for subversive keywords. There seems to be two separate attempts to jam the service by overflowing it with numerous emails filled with key words. On October 18 the American Justice Federation has planned one such activity. Another grass roots movement has been scheduled for the day before Stop Police Brutality Day on October 21 in the hopes that legal authorities will be too busy chasing down bogus leads to stop any planned activities for the day.

On both of these days netizens around the globe are implored to send out at least one email with at least one of the key words. While the actual list of words is not known it is assumed that words such as these will trigger the system: Kill FBI CIA NSA IRS ATF BATF DOD Militia gun weapon manifesto terrorism bomb Special Forces SOF Delta Force Constitution Mossad NASA MI5 Revolution Terrorist
