Marietje Schaake, the EU's most tech-savvy MEP, writes, "Recently I launched a global campaign against the trade in digital
arms from the EU: stopdigitalarms.eu
It is unacceptable that EU-made technologies are still exported,
deployed and operated by European companies to third countries
Globally, citizens' digital freedoms are under threat of
mass-surveillance, censorship and hacking. So far the EU is
unwilling to take action.
In October 2012 the European Parliament adopted legislative
that would curb the export of digital arms.
So far the European Commission and Member States are unwilling to
meet Parliament's demand, so we need vocal public support.
