Surveillance and Counter Surveillance
Security is vital to the success & survival of the resistance movement.
This is because we have an enemy who actively works to undermine, neutralize, & ultimately destroy us.
Failure to remain aware of security concerns can mean the difference between victory or defeat, freedom or imprisonment, life or death.
Not only for yourself, but others around you.
Information gathered from various sources, & that is subjected to analysis & comparison, is called intelligence.
The gathering of intelligence is a vital part of counter-insurgency operations, without which the enemy does not know who, what, where or when to strike.
Security & Counter-Surveillance measures are designed to limit & deny the flow of information to enemy forces. It is based on the principle that counter-insurgency is a permanent part of society and that those engaged in resistance are always vulnerable to surveillance & repression.
Surveillance is the continuous, secretive observation of persons, places, things or objects, in order to gain information.

In countless ways, surveillance is emerging as the dominant way the modern world organizes itself.
Surveillance is the art of observing the activities of people or groups from a position of authority or power.
It may be covert (without your knowledge) or overt (perhaps with a frequent reminder “we’ve got our eyes on you”). It aims at gathering information on the work of a defender or his/her organization to prepare for an aggression or serve as a demonstration of potential aggressor’s capacity to harm with the intention to scare the defender and making him/her stop engaging in sensitive work.
Modern technology has given surveillance a new dimension - surveillance can be automated using computers and extensive records of people’s activities can be kept over a long period of time.
Counter-surveillance is the practice of detecting surveillance i.e. of detecting whether you are being watched.
It is also the practice of avoiding or making surveillance more difficult.
Before the computer age, counter-surveillance entailed evading gents, spies or “ears” and finding ways to communicate secretly.
With recent developments such as the Internet, the increased presence of electronic security systems and databases, counter surveillance
has grown in scope and complexity.
Today, it entails nearly all our areas of work, from knowing how to delete a computerized file without leaving a trace, to avoid being the target of direct advertising agencies who have gathered information on your preference through your use of the Internet.
