No mandatory data retention in Australia

To Minister for Communications, Malcolm Turnbull:

As concerned Australian citizens, we call on you to scrap the government’s plan to introduce mandatory data retention - including the proposed interim measure - and to oppose any future attempt to revise the current laws. You have previously spoken about your commitment to protecting individual liberty and privacy. We ask that you uphold that commitment now.

George Brandis is trying to rush through a plan to monitor ALL internet traffic in Australia. Mandatory metadata retention would mean that every phone call, every tweet, every email would be stored and law enforcement would be able to access it without a warrant. It’s a huge privacy breach, but we can stop this plan before it becomes law.

The government is counting on us not understanding exactly what the policy threatens — but the same ISP companies that will be burdened with collecting the data are some of the most vocal opponents to the plan. One of the bill’s authors, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has opposed similar moves in the past and as the founder of internet company, Ozemail, he knows the negative impact the bill will have.

Let’s overwhelm Malcolm Turnbull with the call to fight within the Cabinet to scrap this over reaching plan. Sign the petition now to stop the snooping.
