"I would say that this is an indication of the successfulness of the Indymedia network. Freedom of information is a radical idea when applied in a fair manner," says Peter Phillips, Ph.D., director of Project Censored. "Radical ideas will always be suppressed by the transnational corporate elites whenever possible. We must act on our rights to freedom of information to keep it safe, and when repressed find new channels and means to succeed."
10/13: The hardware was mysteriously returned to Rackspace.com, but a gag order is still in place, preventing Indymedia from figuring out who took its hard disks or why. Support Indymedia's legal inquiry by signing the Indymedia solidarity statement.
A secret investigation took the FBI all the way to London to seize hard drives from an Indymedia server, named "
Recent news reports from Europe suggest that an Italian "terrorism" investigation may have led to the FBI's seizure of the servers (Google translation); in addition a Swiss prosecutor, Daniel Zappelli, stated that a criminal investigation into Indymedia's coverage of the G8 has been opened. The FBI had recently requested, as a "courtesy," that photographs and "identifying information" of some Swiss police officers be removed from a post on the Nantes Indymedia site; it remains unclear why the FBI would have jurisdiction over a French website with photographs of Swiss police officers hosted in the UK.

Ahimsa is a Buddhist, Hindu and Jainist doctrine meaning literally "non-injury." According to Sri Swami Sivananda, "Non-injury is not merely non-killing. In its comprehensive meaning, Ahimsa or non-injury means entire abstinence from causing any pain or harm whatsoever to any living creature, either by thought, word, or deed. Non-injury requires a harmless mind, mouth, and hand. Ahimsa is not mere negative non-injury. It is positive, cosmic love. It is the development of a mental attitude in which hatred is replaced by love. Ahimsa is true sacrifice. Ahimsa is forgiveness. Ahimsa is Sakti (power). Ahimsa is true strength."
