… the Swedish parlament has definitely damaged democracy yesterday by rating the bill about wiretapping and the included possibilities for the government to listen to the Swedish citizens internet- and cellphone traffic without any indication of – in a political sense – criminal intentions.

… sorry for bothering you with this, but it was too important to me. if you will follow this issue – go to www.stoppafralagen.nu . / Earwolf

sorry but it is necessary to return to this issue. click on the picture and you will hear the Swedish parlament discussing the new law about wire tapping. tonight the Swedish parlament will make its decision.

fom one of the largest Swedish newspapers, DAGENS NYHETER

… today people demonstrate against the law making it possible to wire tap the Swedes without being suspected as criminals (in Swedish). this bill is quite unique in Europes non-dictatory countries.

translation: a Swede keeps his mouth shut, ” she / he didn´t talk about things” concerning the security of the officially neutral country ( poster from the second world war years when the Swedes were encouraged to be careful when talking to strangers) . SInce then the meaning of this phrase has changed to the more ironic ” a Swede do not oppose to anything, a Swede is loyal to the government and the state”.

FRA is the institution dealing with signal scouting for the safety of the Swedish state. this signal scouting will be used – in accordance to the suggested law – for all private mail and cell phone traffic without any specific suspicion against any person.

towards a quiet Swedisch society ? wouldn´t it be better for the Swedish government to listen to their own people instead of wire tapping them? probably the new law in the name of fight against terrorism will pass in the Swedish parlament on the 18th of June.
