The government of the United Kingdom has proposed legislation which will allow them to monitor their citizens online activity in real time: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-17576745
. This, in our opinion, is a massive and unwarranted intrusion into our lives.
Of course, there are ways of evading this snooping (like Tor), but now is the time for political solutions so that technical ones don't become necessary.
Here at LXF towers, we feel that we shouldn't just sit idly by as our civil liberties are taken from us. So our open ballot question is this: What is the best method for making our protest heard? If we sign ePetitions, will our voices be heard? Should we meet with our MPs? Donate to the EFF? Dress as penguins and camp outside 10 Downing St? Or do you have any better ideas?
We're open to suggestions. Let us know your ideas in the comments below.
