FBI/DHS Attempt to Seize Colorado Indymedia Server

FBI/DHS Attempt to Seize Colorado Indymedia Server and Silence Our Users By Ringo 24 Jun 2010 On Jun 17, Colorado Indymedia was contacted by Special Agent Adam Kowalski of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)/Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As part of an "ongoing investigation" by Federal Protective Services, they attempted to seize the Colorado Indymedia server, believing that we kept logs (such as IP address access logs) that could identity users on our site... We told the FBI that "Colorado Indymedia does not retain this [identifying] information because we strongly believe in the First Amendment right to free, anonymous speech." [I'm glad Colo. Indymedia (essentially) told the DHS to go f*ck themselves. They spend so much time on the CLG site, they should pay a portion of our webhosting bill. --LRP]
