UK government preparing email and internet surveillance legislation


The Parasites That Be (TPTB) don’t want us to to know about their corruptions and how they terrorise us. Now they want to ‘protect’ us some more. Thin end of the wedge towards totalitarianism.

Doesn’t existing statutes already allow for selected monitoring anyway?

Ministers are preparing a major expansion of the government’s powers to monitor the e-mail exchanges and website visits of every person in the UK.

Under legislation expected in next month’s Queen’s Speech, internet companies will be instructed to install hardware enabling GCHQ – the government’s electronic “listening” agency – to examine “on demand” any phone call made, text message and e-mail sent, and website accessed in “real time”, it was reported yesterday.

A previous attempt to introduce a similar law was abandoned by the former Labour government in 2006 in the face of fierce opposition.

The Home Office confirmed that ministers were intending to legislate “as soon as parliamentary time allows”.

“It is vital that police and security services are able to obtain communications data in certain circumstances to investigate serious crime and terrorism and to protect the public. …

Nick Pickles, director of the Big Brother Watch campaign group, said: “This is an unprecedented step that will see Britain adopt the same kind of surveillance seen in China and Iran.

“This is an absolute attack on privacy online and it is far from clear this will actually improve public safety, while adding significant costs to internet businesses.

Shami Chakrabarti, director of the civil rights group Liberty, said that both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats had resisted the plan when they were in opposition.

“There is an element of whoever you vote for the empire strikes back,” she said. “This is more ambitious than anything that has been done before. It is a pretty drastic step in a democracy.”

Senior Tory backbencher David Davis said the proposals represented an unnecessary extension of the power of the state to “snoop” on its citizens.

 

Police State New Zealand


 

Someone once said that the first casualty of war is the Truth.

The Parasites That Be (TPTB) know that the unfettered sharing of information is their greatest threat to Global Goverance. The past 20 years has seen the growth of Internet – the greatest ‘equalising medium’. So, of course TPTB will seek ways in which to monitor and then control it.

New Zealand has now falling. The rest of the Pacific basin will soon follow.

Little by little the net closes around us all.

Search and Surveillance Bill passes

Opposition parties say New Zealand has been turned into a “police state” after Parliament last night narrowly passed the Government’s controversial Search and Surveillance Bill.

Parliament last night passed by the Bill by 61 votes to 57.

It was opposed by all Opposition parties and the Government’s support partner the Maori Party.

Greens MP Stefan Browning said the legislation put the powers exercised by police in its heavily criticised 2007 so-called “terror raids” in Ruatoki in the hands of many government agencies.

Those raids led to the trial of the Urewera Four, who a jury this week failed to reach a verdict on the police’s case they were part of an organised criminal group.

Browning told Parliament the law went too far.

“The evils of the Bill go to looking at people’s texts, their voice mails, bugs in cars, chat room videos.”

Thousands of innocent people could have their communications caught up in electronic monitoring, Browning said.

Mana Party leader Hone Harawira said 70 different government agencies could obtain surveillance warrants based on suspicion a crime could be committed.

“This Bill goes way beyond what they have in Europe, in Canada and even in the US.”

If someone was detained under the Bill, enforcement officers could search a person’s workplaces and friends, he told Parliament.

“You don’t have to be guilty of anything, you don’t even have to be to be arrested. You only have to be detained.”

Mana opposed the Bill because it led to a “police state”.

“Where the liberties and freedoms most of us now enjoy will disappear, where the powers of the police will be extended without the approval of the judiciary, where the powers of government agencies will assume more authority that the rights of ordinary New Zealanders and where there will be an assumption of guilt not only on an alleged offender but on anyone who knows that person.

“Where enforcement officers can bug your granddaughter’s phone, install a hidden camera in your daughter’s bathroom, download the files from your wife’s computer and steal your files without even having to prove a crime has been or will be committed.”

Justice Minister Judith Collins said the new law brought “order, certainty, clarity and consistency” to “messy, unclear and outdated” laws.

There were a number of safeguards in the legislation to balance law enforcement and investigation powers with human rights values.

“We have achieved the right balance between the need for effective and modern search and surveillance powers, and protecting the rights of citizens.”

The legislation was originally debated before the last election but concern about its wide-reaching powers saw it sent back to be redrafted.

A temporary “fix-it” law had been put in place until mid-April.

Collins said some of the law’s provision’s would come into effect on April 18 so the expiry of the Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Act 2011 did not endanger ongoing investigations using covert video surveillance.

European Courts: Police kettling is lawful


The madness continues. One day, one day soon, we will bite back.

From: http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2012/03/493571.html

European Courts rule police kettling tactic lawful

The European Courts of Human Rights has ruled today that the UK police tactic of kettling protesters is lawful and does not infringe in article 5 of Convention on Human Rights – the right to liberty and security.

The judgement was based on a case brought before the courts by protesters who were kettled in Oxford Circus in central London for over seven hours during the 2001 Mayday anti-capitalist protests. More than 1,500 were detained without access to food water or toilet facilities by police for a fear of ‘beach of the peace’ despite there being no major outbreaks of violence during the day of protest.

Previously the police did not have the power to detain people against their will unless it was for arrest purposes. The European courts have now given the police the green light to deprive individuals of their liberty – even if they have done nothing illegal or committed a crime, for long periods of time under ‘public order’ tactics.

David Pannick QC, who represented the police argued “kettling” did not violate the human rights code. He said the code’s guarantee of liberty – except for individuals lawfully held in criminal matters – was not meant to concern “mere restrictions of movement”.

The court stated: “The police had imposed the cordon to isolate and contain a large crowd in dangerous and volatile conditions. This had been the least intrusive and most effective means to protect the public from violence. Although the police tried to start dispersing the crowd throughout the afternoon, they had been unable to do so as the danger had persisted.”

Adding: “Even by 2001, advances in communications technology had made it possible to mobilise protesters rapidly and covertly on a hitherto unknown scale. Article 5 did not have to be construed in such a way as to make it impracticable for the police to fulfil their duties of maintaining order and protecting the public.”

The judges voted 14-3 in favour of the police, re-enforcing the 2009 House of Lords verdict that kettling as a crowd control measure was “necessary, proportionate and lawful”.

It was the first time the court in Strasbourg had been asked to rule on kettling.
