The Government is trying to pass a surveillance law that will give the Government, intelligence agencies and police the kind of powers you would expect in an authoritarian regime. The Investigatory Powers Bill will let the security services, police and government departments snoop on our private communications and Internet use.
Data about your emails, phone calls, texts and Internet use will be hoovered up. Everything you do on the Internet and on your phone will be recorded and stored for a year. This can be trawled through by Government supercomputers. The police and security services can hack your computer or phone.
You don’t have to be suspected of a crime for any of these things to happen.
If the #IPBill is passed, the UK will have one of the most extreme surveillance laws in the world. We can’t let this happen. Help us to fight the #IPBill.
