Today We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance #privacyisaright

Privacy is a Right

As has been written in the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance:

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and is central to the maintenance of democratic societies. It is essential to human dignity and it reinforces other rights, such as freedom of expression and information, and freedom of association, and is recognised under international human rights law. Activities that restrict the right to privacy, including communications surveillance, can only be justified when they are prescribed by law, they are necessary to achieve a legitimate aim, and are proportionate to the aim pursued.

I’ve signed the 13 Principles. Have you?
