You have nothing to hide?

type: Petition, Protest
by: Deniz Zehra Tavli

Governments are snooping on everything we do online. State intelligence and security agencies are using mass surveillance to hoover up our private emails, calls, internet searches, contact lists, phone locations, webcam images and more.

In particular, the intelligence services of the five English-speaking countries Australia, Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand and the United States ("Five Eyes" -Alliance) are hoarding and organizing informations for decades, including information obtained through mass surveillance.

The UN Human Rights stated in a resolution of 5 July 2012 that "the same rights that people have offline, also need to be protected online". Monitoring shall only take place if there is an actual suspicion and surveillance becomes necessary, proportionate and arranged judicially.

Everyone can be affected by mass surveillance today ....Get active! Sign the petition and ask the governmets of the "Five Eyes" to stop their programs for mass surveillance!
