Don't Spy On Us: it's time to hold politicians to account for mass surveillance

Tuesday, 11 February, 2014 - 23:00

UK digital rights organisations have teamed up to launch Don't Spy On Us, a protest against mass surveillance perpetrated by the NSA and GCHQ and a call for a public inquiry on the topic. It coincides with a similar initiative in the US titled The Day We Fight Back, which takes place today, 11 February 2014.

Pirate Party UK Leader Loz Kaye said: "We're often told that the British public at large doesn't really care about the issue of mass surveillance. But the Westminster crowd should not mistake their own inability or unwillingness to act for a wider apathy."
