The Russian Connection: FRA-lagen Update & Documentary Project

The Swedish media is informing us of "the Russian Connection" to FRA-lagen, Sweden's newly passed, far reaching wiretapping law:

Svenska Dagbladet coverage of "the Russian connection" (in Swedish)

The Local's coverage of "the Russian connection" (in English)

Reuters coverage of another wiretapping law just approved here in the U.S.

Meanwhile, I'm going to get involved in a new web documentary project following the FRA-lagen controversy and encourage you to check it out and offer your feedback:

I've said it before and I'll say it again, because it needs repeating, civil liberties are at stake. 1984. 1984. 1984.
