Update: Online Sit In Against HLS
20 Jan 2009
Update: Well, well, well... Within 24 hours the website that was hosting our sit in for some reason took our site down.... interesting.... Well, we have posted on many file storage sites the file you need to run in your internet browser. Next monday, January 26th, visit the below websites and run the file in the an internet browser, and pass the news on!!! Even better, download the file AHEAD of time just to be safe.


Monday, January 26, you are invited to join us on an Electronic Sit In against HLS collaborators. We will be targeting the website of HLS's auditors RMSBG and since on the 26th it is the day of action against HLS customer, Bayer, we are targeting the website of one of their biggest products,

This is the way it works. You set your browser to a certain page that continuously loads images on the target website. Our hope is if enough people do this, we will effectively deny legitimate users access to the website by tying up the websites bandwidth. About two months ago, it appears we succeeded in doing this. About halfway into the day the website was taken down and a message saying the website was down was replaced.

Then a couple weeks later there was a call to another action but the website that was hosting our script to reload the images was taken down, most likely by the people we were targeting.
