Activists Win Fight For Privacy in Australia

Victorious Australians Fight the GlobalistsThe Australian Government has backfilled on its plans to implement proposed changes to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 that would have removed the right to privacy in Australia.

The changes proposed would have forced all Australian telecommunications companies and ISP’s to collect and store phone and internet data records for a minimum two years.

It was announced that the Australian Government will postpone the implementation until next election.

The government’s proposals were outlined in a discussion paper titled Inquiry into potential reforms of National Security Legislation that recommended a variety of serious breaches to the freedoms and liberties of Australians.

Some of the proposed changes where:

  • Making it a criminal offence for telecommunication and ISP’s who do not assist in the decryption of communications.
  • Forcing telecommunication companies and ISP’s to store all phone and internet records of their customers for a minimum of two years.
  • Allowing for government ministers to secretly authorize government spy agencies to spy on Aussies.

The flood of attempts that encroach on our freedoms and liberties has been relentless. This change of heart by the government is in DIRECT RESPONSE to the activists of Australia who made every effort to repel the proposals.

Therefore, it the Activist community can direct the same energy into other serious breaches of freedoms such as the poisoning of our waters with Fluoride and the introduction of the Australian carbon tax, then MAYBE there is hope for change.

    Key word…Postponed.
    It ain’t over yet. Globalists are good at biding their time. They’ll ram it through when their next puppet is in power.

      Yeah i know… Maybe, just maybe, this will be a thing of the past.

      What the globalists must never forget is that we are watching them. If they try again, we’ll be on their backs.
