By EDRi · April 24, 2013

The coalition warns that proposals in the EU Parliament could strip citizens of their privacy rights

A coalition of civil rights organizations is holding a press conference on 25 April at 11am to urgently draw attention to a report which shows the current danger to EU data protection. The coalition is worried that data protection will be effectively destroyed in Europe if the amendments identified in its report as particularly harmful were adopted by the European Parliament. In addition to the report, a “naked citizens’” campaign will be launched in major European capitals and a website made available to concerned citizens through which they can contact their MEPs.
