Stop the snooping!

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.

Stop the snooping!

George Brandis is rushing through a plan to monitor ALL internet users in Australia -- that's information about every phone call we make, every email we send. It’s a huge privacy breach in the name of national security, but we can stop this plan before it becomes law.

Mandatory metadata retention would force internet companies to store information about all web traffic and let law enforcement access it without a warrant. Opposition is rising, and many of these same ISPs have come out strongly against the plan. Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has opposed similar moves in the past and if we focus huge public opposition on him we can get him to take our voices into Cabinet.

Telco's don't want this plan, let's show them the people don't want it either. Call on Malcolm Turnbull to fight within Cabinet to scrap this over-reaching plan. Sign the petition now to stop the snooping.
