Katherine Maher led a discussion on the National Security Agency surveillance programs. She said that regardless of their legality in the U.S., they said might violate international law and treaties to which the U.S. is a signer. She represented a group that had formulated new principles aimed at protecting people from unwarranted electronic surveillance. The “International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance” initiative includes language dealing with transparency, user notification and judicial oversight.

This was a meeting of Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M), an informal meet-up at the New America Foundation for software creators and activists interested in censorship, surveillance, and open technology. close
