You can upload a picture into Imgur and then link it here. – Lucio Mar 26 '13 at 2:07

Also, are you behind a proxy? Can you navigate in the web without problems? – Lucio Mar 26 '13 at 2:11

"403 Forbidden" means that something between you and the target mirrors is preventing you to connect. This is specific to your network and hard to debug from here on a Q&A site. Verify your proxy settings (separate settings may apply for apt!) is the first thing I would do. – gertvdijk Jul 19 '13 at 13:32
