Round-up: Scrambling for Safety 2012

Emma Draper writes on the Privacy International web site:

On Thursday 19th April, Privacy International – in partnership with the LSE, the Foundation for Information Policy Research, Open Rights Group and Big Brother Watch – hosted Scrambling for Safety 2012, a discussion of the Home Office’s new plans for mass interception in the UK. Around 200 people turned up (despite the sporadic but torrential rain!), and the number of insightful, well-informed questions from the audience proved to us that the Home Office is not going to get this one past the British public without a fight. The event was livestreamed and videos of each panel are now available to watch. Many thanks to everyone who came and contributed.

Three hours of videos covering the entire event are available via the SFS YouTube page.
