Several days ago we identified information which suggested that efforts were being made to close down the Expendable.TV website. We issued a bulletin at the time. Consequently, we took the requisite steps to mirror the site, and we placed on record that the project material was entirely legal, and that our team had not broken any law in the United States, where the website is hosted.
Regrettably, however, emerging evidence indicates that the response of the Australian authorities has been to launch another unwelcome initiative.
The report below demonstrates the deployment of the Australian Federal Police (AFP). It evidences intrusive monitoring and surveillance, and the application of software commonly deployed to steal website content and scan for security vulnerabilities. A number of The Expendable Project gatekeepers have also reported highly suspicious incidents, both online and offline. The FBI have been notified of these developments.
This growing catalogue of state intrusion incidents is extremely disturbing. We should make it clear, however, that any covert and illegitimate efforts to cease or disrupt publication of The Expendable Project disclosures will be vigorously resisted.
THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA
Unlike Wikileaks, the Hidden World Research Group has had no support from any mainstream media organization. Indeed, as of 22nd September, the entire Australian media has neither broadcast nor published any of the information which we have revealed.
Given its gravity, authenticity, and serious subject matter, this raises inevitable questions relating to media affiliation, plurality of ownership, and the freedom of the press in that nation. The information is patently of significant national interest. It's disclosure is most certainly in the public interest.
Whilst we maintain hope that the mainstream media may yet take the project revelations to a wider audience, the project materials will remain open to access online, and will be distributed globally by our volunteer network in due course. We invite all organizations and individuals to distribute The Expendable Project materials, as the best defence against attacks on our democratic freedoms, and against the serious and disturbing abuses in political office which they document.
THE EXPENDABLE SCHEDULE
The normal schedule of Expendable Project releases will now resume, with the release of 'The Insider Interview'.
The project will continue to expose the suppression of evidence, the wilful misleading of Parliament, the direct lies to the media, and the orchestration of state organs against Schapelle Corby and her family. It will continue to demonstrate the wilful political sacrifice of an innocent woman for political expediency.
