Swedish authorities have given a green light to the radio corps of the military for mass surveillance of telecommunications. According to Anne Ramberg in the Swedish Association of Lawyers, this means that Sweden will now carry through a surveillance similar to that of former Eastern Germany, and by far surpasses for example the United States of today.
More and similar descisions are coming, decisions that will consequently give priority to surveillance over integrity. It is time to tell the Parliament that they don't have support for these policies. It is time for demonstrations!
This Saturday, February 17, the Pirate Party will arrange a demonstration for the right to privacy, together with Green Youth, Liberal Youth and Young Pirate. More organisations are poked and might attend. We gather those that want to save our rights to a private life on the following spots:
Stockholm - Mynttorget, 2 p.m.
Gothemburg: Gustav Adolf square, 1 p.m.
Malmö: Stortorget, 1 p.m.
Umeå: Rådhustorget, 3 p.m.
Come to the demonstration, bring your friends and demonstrate for the right to privacy.
