anke domscheit-berg im guardian: Germany should lead on disarming our global surveillance system
Pushed by Germany, this surveillance disarmament could start within the EU, with basic rights such as freedom of the press reinstalled and an end to spying on citizens. We, as a union of 28 countries, could become the core of a new value system for the global digital society. Together, we can take back our sovereignty and tell the US that we are no longer their allies in a war that is no longer a war on terrorism but on the people. The German federal election will be also be a vote on whether we want this change to happen or prefer to wait until it is too late.
