Links to remember on PRISM and Snowden

Hi,

What we’re seeing in Der Spiegel, The Guardian, Washington Post and
other select publications is the birth of new threat models – not just
for activists but for all of civil society, parliamentarians, companies
and more. This is a threat model that “many have known” and yet at the
same time, there is clearly new stuff. For one – we’re seeing
confirmations of things that have been denied in public – we’re also
learning the names of things, which now made public, may be FOIA’ed by
name as well as pushing for disclosures. This is where we’ll see if
America will shine – when the information comes out, will we be able to
use our democratic process to turn this disaster around? I’d like to
think so – that is why I worked on these pieces – hope is not lost.
Though hope alone is not a strategy.

I think this may be of interest to people on the list:

Last week’s article is also very important:

This is also probably of great interest to people on the list:

All the best,
