A full-page newspaper ad, to coincide with an EU-US summit in Dublin, claims surveillance breaches United Nations conventions.
from The Journal:
NINE MAJOR international civil liberties groups have claimed that the US’s electronic surveillance programme, PRISM, is an evident breach of international conventions on human rights.
In a newspaper advertisement, timed to coincide with a major summit between the European Union and the United States taking place in Dublin, the groups claim the reported extent of PRISM surveillance is a clear breach of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
“Recent reports indicate that the US government has the ability to acquire and monitor the content of communications and other electronic data, including location data, from international users of popular Internet services in real-time,” the joint statement reads.
