FIX TORSOCKS PERROR ISSUE

In ParrotOS if you install torsocks using apt-get install torsocks, it installs fine, however you cannot run it from the commandline as it has the following error

HOSTING WEBSITES BEYOND YOUR GOVERNMENT’S REACH

Many countries have websites, and content they cannot visit, or information they cannot post. Here in the States, simply saying fraud and election together will get you banned from social media and from searches….Welcome to 2021…

To post content beyond your local country’s censorship, you will have to make your website in a different country. Even then, your government may be able to take it down through their partnerships with those countries

How do you make sure you are safe, and your website is safe….

Build your website, in a country, which does not have an Extradition agreement with your local government….

For us in the States, to post information about fraudulent elections we would have to select a web hosting provider which resides outside of the countries in from the current list (they cannot be on this list):

ANTI-SURVEILLANCE / COUNTERSURVEILLANCE / ANTI-PAPPARAZZI / CLOTHING

  • Privacy

The simple lack of Privacy is becoming more and more prevalent these days. In looking for technologies that would skew unwanted photographs, I was able to find some info on the web, yet i was unable to purchase any products that actually did it. So I threw together some of my own COVID masks, with the pieces and parts added to them. Below you will find a few pictures of what I did.

I use bandannas as face coverings during the pandemic. While I will use an N95 mask, I will overlay it with your regular bandanna for that second (now CDC recommended) layer of protection.

I had decided to put the anti-surveillance tech to use on these bandannas
anti-surveillance
anti-papparazzi

As you can see from above, I started with the regular camo bandanna, and overlayed a pattern on top of them in this grey material. The grey pattern is the countersurveillance system.

When a photo is taken of these bandannas, and the flash is used (daytime or night time) the photo is blacked out, and the grey areas are now extraordinarily white, as you can see below. These photos were taken in the same light, of the same bandannas, using the same iphone camera. The only difference is the flash was now enabled, as is with most cameras.

antipapparazzi

And finally here are some pictures of me, wearing it, and having a photo taken with the iphone camera’s flash on.

ACCESSING .ONION SITES WITHOUT TOR

While TOR is the recommended way to access the dark web, everyone and anyone can still visit without the same level of anonymity. I certainly would suggest using TOR always, however if you need to get to any .onion site from a computer without tor, you can do so by following this:

Open an internet browser (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, etc)
Type in the .onion site (ex. https://protonirockerxow.onion/rc/)
After the .onion portion of the address, add .dog (ex https://protonirockerxow.onion.dog/rc/)
Press Enter
You are now viewing RISEUP’s website on the darkweb, using a regular browser
