Imagine if ANYONE could read ALL your personal emails and listen to ALL your private phone calls…

Imagine if ANYONE
could read ALL your personal emails and
listen to ALL your private phone calls?!?!
 
I am not into “causes” – but I can’t let the privacy pirates get away with this.
I received this information from Avaaz.org and believe we need to come together to ensure this doesn’t happen:Phone TappingGeorge Brandis is trying to rush through a plan to monitor ALL internet traffic in Australia. Mandatory metadata retention would mean that every phone call, every tweet, every email would be stored and law enforcement would be able to access it without a warrant. It’s a huge privacy breach, but we can stop this plan before it becomes law.
The government is counting on us not understanding exactly what the policy threatens — but the same ISP companies that will be burdened with collecting the data are some of the most vocal opponents to the plan. One of the bill’s authors, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has opposed similar moves in the past and as the founder of the Internet company, Ozemail, he knows the negative impact the bill will have.
Let’s overwhelm Malcolm Turnbull with a call to fight within Cabinet to scrap this over-reaching plan.
Sign the petition now to stop the snooping.

Collecting and storing huge amounts of data on citizens is a radical move. Brandis claims that the new measures are necessary to protect us from the threat of terrorism, but current laws provide intelligence agencies with more than enough information, while maintaining strict rules on privacy. And now Tony Abbott appears to have massively broadened the scope of the proposed scheme.

Telco’s don’t want this plan to go ahead either. The collection and storage of so much information may add up to 100 terabytes of data a day. It’s also extraordinarily expensive and is estimated to cost $500 million for each provider — a cost that will inevitably be passed on to customers.

Malcolm Turnbull was critical of the previous Labor government’s plans for mandatory data retention and has said he is “absolutely committed to individual liberty and privacy”.

Let’s keep Turnbull accountable to his previous statements — sign the petition now.
As a community, we have to come together to protect the freedom of all citizens in this digital age, we can’t let them get away with this.

If you don’t stand up and be counted NOW, you can’t then whinge about the government you’ll tracking and monitoring you 24 hours a day, seven days a week – secretly.

All we’re asking is that you take 10 seconds to click on the petition.

If you want to do more than that, “your share” of the solution would be to promote this through social media and/or your email lists as I have done to TENS OF THOUSANDS of fellow Aussies and let’s stop this dead in its tracks – NOW while we still can.
