|ICMS, Indian version that's worse than CISPA.|
Greetings world, we are Anonymous. It has come to our attention that the Indian government has launched their new monitoring system this month, april 2013. We would like to explain what that means and what consequences this may have.
ICMS stands for "India Central Monitoring System" and is a surveillance system used by the Indian government. ICMS is way worse than CISPA in the sense that it monitors everything you do online, even without a suspicion of crime. This means that the government will have full access to your phone calls, chat logs and e-mails, even without telling you why. Anonymous will never accept such laws since we believe that the power should belong to the people, and the people do not want to be monitored like this. We therefore ask you to sign this petition on Avaaz to tell the Indian government to respect internet freedom and the privacy online:
Use the hashtag #StopICMS on twitter to spread the message.
What can i do to stop this?
- Sign the petition on Avaaz
- Spread the message online using the hashtag #StopICMS
- Arrange a demonstration in your city to raise awereness
- Mail local politicians in India and tell them to get involved in the fight against ICMS
- Share this picture as much as you can: http://i.imgur.com/BoQ93xy.png
We DID stop SOPA, PIPA and ACTA this way, and we will be able to fight ICMS the same way. Please share this pastebin and help us to peacefully fight for a better world with real privacy laws.
