The internet is global and so are the threats to its privacy!
-
As liberals we fear the loss of our privacy to Government snooping and recently launched a petition against the Surveillance society (sign here  http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/say-no-to-the-surveillance-society.html). In the US however a bill is already being proposed to allow their Government to spy on their citizens.

Cyber campaigners Avaaz are also running their own petition against the US ‘The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA)’. They say

‘CISPA would allow companies doing business in the US to collect exact records of all of our online activities and hand them over to the US government, without ever notifying us that we are being watched. No warrant, no legal cause and no due process required. To make matters worse, the bill provides the government and corporations with blanket immunity to protect them from being sued for violation of privacy and other illegal actions. The bill’s supporters claim that consumer information will be protected, but the reality is that huge loopholes would make everything we do online fair game — and nowadays, from banking to shopping, our private information is all stored on the Internet. CISPA is being moved forward in Congress and will be voted upon in days. Let’s raise a massive outcry to stop corporations from giving the US a blank check to monitor our every move.
