I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Digital Darkness: U.S., U.K. Companies Help Mubarak’s Regime Shut Down Telecommunications & Identify Dissident Voices:
(DemocracyNow.org) Doing the regime’s bidding, British-based Vodafone shut down Egypt’s phone and internet service. The American company called Narus — owned by Boeing — sold Egypt the surveillance technology that helped identify dissident voices.
My Commentary: THIS is FASCISM! Working as partners with Egypt’s tyrannical, illegitimate US-puppet, Mubarak, the soulless corporations of the west quickly shut down the service of millions of paying customers for days in order to suppress free speech & revolution for profit! And, this is only ONE of A NUMBER of cases of corporations from the west working with dictatorships towards the goal of CENSORSHIP!
Here a few other cases worth mentioning:
