Demonstration against wiretapping law in Helsinki on Feb 5, 2009

Briefly in English: Meeting near the Central Railway Station at 14:30, demonstration to begin outside the Parliament at 15:00.

“Lex Nokia” is a loophole plagued law proposal which, if passed, would allow network owners to spy on header information (from/to fields) in electronic communications in order to stop very loosely defined “misuse”. Eavesdropping on “parts” of unencrypted electronic communication protocols is as much of a bad joke as pretending to be reading only the address part of a non-enveloped postcard.

The bill derives its informal name from Nokia, one of its corporate backers.

I’ve previously used this site as a vehicle for my views on the cancer of middle aged clueless-on-Internet-issues voters and politicians that’s destroying existing preconditions for civil liberties in my country.

Also: Google translation of the original post, the event on Facebook.
