The European ministers of Justice and the European Commission want to install a privacy nightmare in Europe:
The proposal to retain traffic data will reveal who has been calling and e-mailing whom, what websites people have visited and even where they were with their mobile phones.
As a response, the European Digital Rights (EDRI) has started the Data Retention is no Solution petition. Currently about 17.000 people signed (I am one of them), but lots more signatures (1 million) are needed until October 12, 2005.
Sign the petition, tell all your friends. I'm sure none of us want to live in a total-surveillance-as-in-1984 type of world.
