Today is Tuesday 11th February 2014 and today, we fight back.
For months now we have been hearing of terrible abuses of power from our government and others around the world thanks to the bravery of Edward Snowden. The NSA and GCHQ are spying on our internet activity, emails, phone calls, txt messages and getting access to popular websites such as Facebook to see who you are talking to.
The mainstream political parties will NOT change this. Between them they have brought us into this surveillance state and rather than moving away from it, last year the Government failed in it’s attempts to give the security services the legal powers to do what they have already been doing illegally. The Government are now actively looking at ways to censor the internet in line with China and North Korea.
Enough is enough, this has to stop. The Pirate Party UK remain 100% against spying and censorship and 100% behind civil liberties. That is why we support #thedaywefightback.
