Edward Snowden

New revelations increase pressure for surveillance inquiry

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam and Independent Senator Nick Xenophon push for senate inquiry into spying on Australian citizens.

The two major parties are opposing an inquiry despite disturbing new revelations from Edward Snowden. Today's revelations about coordinated mass-surveillance of ordinary citizens will increase the pressure on the Australian Government to come to the table with transparency and reform proposals without delay.


Before Edward Snowden and Wikileaks, William Roy attempted to expose mass surveillance by the United States government and was killed in 1991

Manning, Assange, Snowden….but before the age of Wikileaks came brilliant electronics, communications and surveillance expert and whistleblower William Francis Roy who was killed at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia in March 1991.
