͏a̅tea is a tool for secure downloads via DANE. It can detect and thus prevent access to sites spoofed by intelligence. At the same time we show how to set up a secure emailing environment with Firefox via DANE. Before we deployed this technology dozens of emails from estellnb@elstel.org were lost, apparently due to censorship by secret services.

The indigenous land defenders from the Wet'suwet'en people who protest against a fracking gas pipeline have strong support across Canada. 57 people were arrested at the Port Vancouver shutdown. Protesters blocked the entrance to the legislature of British Columbia. Railroads have been blocked. The Wet'suwet'en were granted sovereignty on their land and they would have had the right for free, prior, and informed consent under Canadian law before the pipeline could be built. However an interim injunction made permanent allows Coastal GasLink to operate on their territory. Royal Canadian Mounted Police is terrorizing the indigenous land defenders by a heavily armed invasion, by pointing with guns at unarmed people and by arbitrary arrests.

Blackrock has announced and divested from all companies that make more than 25% of their business volume with mining coal. However there is no divestment margin for burning coal as used for producing electricity. Nonetheless it marks a milestone that the world´s biggest investment fund does care about climate change in deed. Up to now it has only issued hollow statements of intent which it then did not follow - up to now. We would not have expected Blackrock to sell its shares of the German electricity companies RWE and Eon because of this. Now that is telling us that the persistent protests against the climate wracking investment policy of the fund did in deed already carry fruits!
