[Nettime-bold] Code for Zapatista FloodNet - adapted for etoys - for Re.no


Code for Zapatista FloodNet - adapted for etoys - for Re.no

We are networks without gravity, here the apple falls up.
-the zapatistas

The web must help the weakest and poorest,
let us redistribute the powers, reverse engineering!!
--Re.no


Many network_art_activist have not only
participated in Electronic Civil Disobedience, but
have also been at the heart of moving the code
forward. One such reverse engineer for the
people has been.Re.no (reno courvoisier), a
member of FEDERATION OF RANDOM
ACTION. Re.no has worked with
Electronic Disturbance Theater, rt {AT} mark,
and is currently developing tactics in support
of  Leonardo (http://leonardo.c3.hu/ ).
But, most importantly Re.no led the VR-Sit In
against OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM
( Oxy and CdnOxy ) and
FIDELITY INVESTMENTS
that invests in Oxy (Al Gore own half million
dollar worth of Oxy stock via Fidelity) and
in support of the U’wa on February 3, 2000:

*The U'wa of the Colombian cloud forest are
in a life-and-death struggle to protect their
traditional culture and sacred homeland from
an oil project slated to begin on their land
at anytime. The U'wa are adamantly opposed
to the drilling and warn that the project will
lead to an increase in violence as seen in
other oil regions of Colombia. Despite this,
Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum
and the Colombian government continue to
move forward with plans to drill.

http://www.ran.org/

Re.no answered The U'wa’s call for international
support.and action to bear witness to this act
of destruction. The Sit-In created a disturbance
that was so effective that Fidelity Investment in
an act of cyber vigilantism shut down The Federation
of Random Action’s URL. An aggressive tactic
by e-commence that will continue to grow in use
against non-violent, network activism.

In honor of the work done by Re.no, and many
others like him and the Federation of Random Action,
the Electronic Disturbance Theater is releasing the
code from the Zapatista FloodNet during  the
Etoys vs. Etoy actions.

Zapata Vive!!
