Stop mass surveillance, protect our data and our whistleblowers!

We, the citizens, are aware that we are now the targets of mass surveillance. Our fundamental rights are being violated. We demand that a Committee of Investigation is created by the European Parliament to provide information on recent scandals surrounding the mass surveillance of EU citizens. We demand a prohibition on the transfer of user data from EU citizens to foreign intelligence services. This prohibition should also apply to the wholesale spying on citizens of member states by other member states. We demand that the EU initiate an international agreement on surveillance disarmament as well as legal protection to whistleblowers across Europe. This will ensure that future violations of fundamental rights can be brought to light and treated correctly in the future.

      I want transparency of government, freedom of information and freedom of communications, and most other normal citizens want these freedoms as well. "Democracy" has somehow failed us when only the governments themselves want to scrutinise our lives, words and thoughts to control our society under the guise of "national security".

      Because the Internet was free, and it should've stayed that way
