Today we fight back against mass surveillance

Many of you will have seen something like this when you visit my blog today:

EFF take-over on my blogAnd I'm far from alone. Here's Antony Mayfield's blog:

fight-back.pngIt's not often that I use my blog for political purposes, but this is something I feel strongly about. I've heard from people on both sides of the issue, and while I can appreciate the effectiveness of mass surveillance in proventing terrorist attacks, I still can't find it in myself to condone mass surveillance of people who have no reasonable suspicion of involvement hanging over them. Just because the nature of the internet makes this easier does not mean this is an acceptable or reasonable way for democratic societies to behave.

So, I've signed the petition against it, and I urge you to consider doing the same - or writing to your congress respresentative if you're in the US

Sign the petition.
