We should probably pay attention to this and spread awareness even if we are not American: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/earn-it-bill-governments-not-so-secret-plan-scan-every-message-online
@polychrome Since the global "tech giants" are American, this certainly does affect us. And the secure, "Signal private messenger" is based in the US, too. Like many things. Just saying. 🤷♀️
Glad EFF has been keeping an eye out. They do good work.
Our govt lie constantly, deny #justice to actual genuine whistleblowers revealing banker crimes and war crimes, flood our country with people to boost consumerism while deskilling and derascinate us but they want us to trust them to read our emails.
Get smart and start organising.
You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
