Human and Environmental Rights Group Thursday Actions


Internet Privacy


First of all, you DO have a right to privacy!


The right to privacy is not an abstract right - it is guaranteed as one of the articles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Any attempt by governments or corporations to deny this right needs to be considered in the light of this declaration.








The scale of this potential intrusion presents challenges for those seeking to prevent government violations of

privacy. Will governments pay attention to popular protest? Is the level of intrusion justified given the

perceived threat of terrorism? Are people cynical about their right to privacy? How can we communicate our

concerns in a way that is meaningful to people who are indifferent?
