Why is it so dark in here?

The Government’s data retention scheme looks set to pass the Senate this week with Labor’s support.

This scheme is rushed, costly, ineffective, and against the public interest. Also, absurdly, the flawed legislation leaves open numerous loopholes, which can be used to evade the scheme. This means the data retention dragnet will capture the data of innocent Australians and cost millions of dollars, while allowing those who don’t want to be caught to remain hidden.

On Wednesday 25 March, Australians are planning an online protest against data retention to show just how ineffective the invasive scheme will be.

Add your name to the list of people pledging to go dark against data retention.
