Round 1.

I most certainly hope you’re going to love this short but sweet post:

US & EU comps make 80-90% of surveillance tech. Sign @accessnow petition calling on govts 2 stop sale 2 regimes.

As to quote from the email I just got from

“We did it! The new Syrian surveillance system will not go ahead. After global pressure, including over 10,000 of us who demanded that Area, NetApp, Qosmos, and Utimaco end their involvement in building this new system, the main player Area just announced it would drop out and halt the construction of this possibly deadly project. But we won’t stop here!”

It would seem that we have just won “Round 1“, but as you look at the petition posted, then you’ll see that we’re only halfway there!
