  The FBI has recently sent two subpoenas to the website administrator 
of the flag.blackened.net webserver. Recently there have been rumours 
circulating in anarchist circles the flag's webmaster had been 
contacted by the FBI, he has released this press release to notify the 
wider activist community on what has been going on. The Flag server 
host many of anarchism's most widely viewed websites and the removal of 
this sever would be a major blow to anarchist organising worldwide.

He has been ordered on two separate occasions to submit IP information 
of people using certain subdomains hosted on the flag server one of 
which was the popular Infoshop News. These relate to people claiming 
responsibility for "propaganda by the deed". The moderator believes at 
least one of these cases are by people trying to make the flag server 
"vulnerable to government intrusion".

The FBI in recent years, has gone after a number of 
radical/revolutionary left wing websites, most notably are the shutting 
down of the raise the fist website and subsequent jailing of it's 
webmaster Sherman Austin and also targeting many on the Indymedia 
network.
