Mass surveillance is fundamental threat to human rights, says European report

Prophecy Sign: The coming global surveillance/police state


We are being watched like never before.  Cell phones, social media and other forms of digital communication are all being monitored.  And of course anywhere you travel in any large city will see you being recorded on a multitude of surveillance cameras.  Welcome to the days of Big Brother.

It was given power to wage war against God's holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Revelation 13:7 NIV

Mass surveillance is fundamental threat to human rights, says European report
Europe’s top rights body has said mass surveillance practices are a fundamental threat to human rights and violate the right to privacy enshrined in European law. The parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe says in a report that it is “deeply concerned” by the “far-reaching, technologically advanced systems” used by the US and UK to collect, store and analyse the data of private citizens. It describes the scale of spying by the US National Security Agency, revealed by Edward Snowden, as “stunning”
The report also suggests that British laws that give the monitoring agency GCHQ wide-ranging powers are incompatible with the European convention on human rights. It argues that British surveillance may be at odds with article 8, the right to privacy, as well as article 10, which guarantees freedom of expression, and article 6, the right to a fair trial. “These rights are cornerstones of democracy. Their infringement without adequate judicial control jeopardises the rule of law,” it says.

Snowden files show Canada spy agency runs global Internet watch
Canada's electronic spy agency has been intercepting and analyzing data on up to 15 million file downloads daily as part of a global surveillance program, according to a report published on Wednesday. Critics said the revelations, made in 2012 documents obtained by former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden and leaked to journalists, showed much more oversight was needed over Canada's Communications Security Establishment (CSE).
