Telecomix are setting up dialups as we speak, in an operation coordinated
with some isps across Europe. Information will be sent around as soon as
everything is set up.

More is ofc always needed.

> Watch could no longer reach workers by mobile phone, and access to
> Twitter.com and other news sites reporting on the unrest had been blocked
