To all political friends.
The Danish activist network Global 
Roots is running a net-blocade as a
protest against EU and Fortress 
Europe. It?s a legal action and it will
have a big effect if many people 
join. The details follow. We hope you?ll
join and - very importantly - that 
you?ll link to the site

Internet action against the EU: the 
Danish activist group Global Roots is
carrying out the first netblocade against the EU

EU politicians are hiding behind barbed 
wire, police and roadblocks, and
authorities want to prevent 
demonstrators from coming to Copenhagen to
voice their disagreement with EU?s 
politics. People who are prevented from
participating in the demonstrations in 
Copenhagen can now show their
resistance to the EU via the internet.

Global Roots have arranged an internet 
action to target the homepage of
the Danish presidency www.eu2002.dk

To participate in the action, you must 
enter the Global Roots website and
run a so called WebSript.

As long as the script runs, the server 
targeted is ?hit? by a request it
can?t ?understand? every 1,5 seconds. 
This means that it diverts resources
from the system, at worst - or best - 
the machine breaks down or at least
?answers? slowly.

The action is legal and ONLY works if a 
lot of people participate at once.
Because of this ?mass basis? the action 
have more legitimacy than more
elitarian hacking by individuals. The 
action can best be compared to a
blockade of, for example, a factory. If 
only a handful of people show up,
it will have no effect - and probably 
not much support. If thousands stand
in the way, no one can get through, and 
the case gains wide appeal from
the people.

The action runs from Friday morning 
until Sunday afternoon on
