Final Adoption of Generalised Surveillance in France: a Disturbing Political Drift
The French President promulgated [fr] the 2014-2019 Defense Bill last night. Adoption of article 20 (former article 13) opening the door to generalised surveillance of communications and the failure to request its constitutional challenge demonstrate the deep crisis of a political system which does not hesitate anymore to massively compromise fundamental rights. La Quadrature du Net thanks all those who contributed to oppose this article. It calls for the continuation of the fight against surveillance of our communications on the Internet, by any means: before Parliament or judges, through technology and usage choices.
