Would you like to know more about the Manchester ID card
on Saturday 1St June 2013 we will be running a street stall in our usual place in St. Ann's Square, Manchester.
In a change to our usual format, we have invited Open Rights Group Manchester to come along and run a joint street stall with us. The aim is to pool our resources to jointly promote both the NO2ID and ORG campaigns, so we will be handing out literature from both our groups.
As usual everyone is welcome to come along to help out, or just say hello.
Yesterday (Monday 29th April 2013) the Open Rights Group published a report called “Digital Surveillance Why the Snoopers’ Charter is the wrong approach: A call for targeted and accountable investigatory powers”
The report is written with general audiences in mind and gives the history of surveillance policy, looks at the current state of the law and why surveillance technology poses problems for civil liberties.
Well the good news in the Queen’s speech today (8th May 2013) is what it doesn’t contain.
As predicted the Communications Data Bill, AKA the “Snoopers’ Charter” has been dropped, so let’s congratulate ourselves on our well fought campaign which has defeated this pernicious bill.
