🇬🇧 Yesterday, the regulation on #chatcontrol was adopted by the EU Parliament: a sad day for all those who rely on free and confidential communications and advice, including abuse victims and press sources. This is how the Parliament’s groups voted:
1. We ignore them and they ignore us.
2. One of us will eventually sue and have that sorry excuse for a law struck down.
I don't know what is it about politicians as a whole that they're always seem to be two generations behind the rest of us.
@echo_pbreyer Ohh, our politicans are bored. If they want no encrypted communication then we host outside the EU.
@echo_pbreyer Wow, that is really terrible. Will try to do more research and understand the implications.
I am especially worried about backdooring E2Ee chats. I will... just stop using these services, which is definitely undesirable
Fwiw, the black rectangle in the GUE/NGL (the Left group) is because of the Greek "left" MEPs.
@echo_pbreyer Ok, meine individuellen E-mails an ALLE der CSU und SPD (ok Wölken vergessen) dieser Liste haben es ja voll gebracht. Nicht.
Wobei vlt. war es ja meine herz-zereißende E-Mail über Kinder, die die drei Damen der SPD überzeugt hat.
