Unfurl the Jolly Roger

"Every breath you take, And every move you make, Every bond you break,
Every step you take. I'll be watching you..." The Police

Every mail you send, every telephone call you make, each SMS, who you talk to, where you are... logged

Where you surf to... logged

Where you drive.. logged

Mails, phonecalls and texts ....monitored.

State spyware on your PC recording every keystroke...

I don't want to live in a society where people live under constant surveillance... but sadly right now that's the way it is going. But me saying 'no' isn't going to stop things.. it needs a bigger awareness of what is being done in our name. It needs people to wake up and say STOP...

And if I want that to happen I need to be part of making it happen.

...and that is why today I became a Pirate.
By supporting Piratpartiet I support an organisation that puts the rights of the individual first, and will not comprimise those rights to fight terrorism, or organised crime, or to benefit specific commercial interésts. You don't defend democracy by putting it in fetters....

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

Mahatma Gandhi
