Anonymous – Thailand Censorship OpSingleGateway


Greetings world, we are Anonymous.

Many of the governments in the world today censor what can be seen.

The government of Thailand has been under scrutiny since the parliament approved an amendment to the 2007 Computer Protection Law. There is strong resentment among people because the Single Internet Gateway project will be implemented by the amended law, which was passed on December 16 2016. It is worth noting that the bill was passed after a 6 hour long debate with 168 votes in favour, and 0 votes against the bill. On the other hand, before the bill was signed into a law, a petition was signed by over 360,000 citizens of Thailand protesting against the amendment and demanding to revise the bill.

After the gradual erosion of freedom of speech in Thailand, the recent changes to the law look to be the final step in the juntas plan to control political discourse in the Southeast Asian nation. Commentators have warned that at the very least we are likely to see a significant chilling effect on online freedom of expression. At worst, the junta could use the amendments to rewrite Thailand’s political history and jail its critics.

The amendment allows for anyone with distorted content on their computer or device to be jailed for up to five years. What actually constitutes distorted content seems to be anybody’s guess.
Other changes allow for content that is considered by committees under the digital ministry to be a threat to public order, or against good morals to be deleted after a proper court order is issued. However, the committee can order content to be deleted without court approval in emergency situations.

Even more worryingly, the court will have the power to order the permanent deletion of any content that is deemed false. The junta has time and again displayed its eagerness to control Thailand’s political narrative. The amended Act could allow it to shape its own version of history.

At the individual level, if an internet user is suspected of producing or downloading distorted or immoral content, authorities can demand their full browsing history from their Internet service provider, seize their computer and devices, and demand passwords to their social media accounts. The internet service provider will be required to actively monitor content through their service.

Since the announcement, Thailand has tried to ward off a series of cyberattacks; websites of the National Security Agency and the Ministry of Defense became inaccessible. It is being reported that six government websites, including the two mentioned above, were D Dost, including the public page of the ruling junta party, National Security Guard website and the webpage of the Ministry of Digital Economy.

We will not sit idly by and watch another nation construct a Great Firewall, as China has done to keep its citizens from experiencing the competing viewpoints and ideologies that make up a free and open discourse online. The Thai military junta want to centralize and ultimately control the means with which the Thai people will be able to access the Internet. This will enable them to monitor, censor or even disable Internet communications in and out of Thailand.

A very important issue at this time, regarding the governments of today, is the current lack of transparency due to the increase in censorship.

Within the past year, the United States government set a new high of over two hundred thousand denied Freedom of Information requests. This demonstrates the amount of secrecy present in the White House, and the mass storage of information the government does not intend for us to see. In the past eight years, the amount of censored documents has risen dramatically from 30% in 2008, to an alarming 64% in 2015.

Let this message serve as a reminder of the ongoing war between the government and the internet.

Thailand, we are with you, we want to show you the risks to your liberty and privacy, take a stand and tell your government that this is wrong. Together, we stand against the injustice that is the Thai government and its co-operators; tomorrow you will pay the price of your oppression against your own people.

You can arrest us, but you cannot arrest an idea.

Operation Single Gateway, engaged.

We Are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
Expect us
