New INCLO Report Shows how Surveillance is Violating Rights in Democracies Around the World
"Edward Snowden’s revelations of the United States’ mass surveillance
collection and storage program have radically altered our understanding
of digital surveillance and the way intelligence agencies operate.
However, outside the major 'Five Eyes' countries — the United States,
the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia — the range of
digital surveillance regimes — and even still more traditional
surveillance — and their impacts remain relatively unknown.
In its newest report, 'Surveillance and Democracy: Chilling Tales from Around the World',
the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations (INCLO), of
which CCLA is a member, attempts to blow open the truth about this
growing international scourge and demonstrate the chilling impact that
unregulated and unrestrained surveillance can have – crushing dissent,
intimidating activists and undermining the dignity of ordinary citizens."
