The SSN Annual Book Prize 2014, for the best surveillance studies monograph published in 2013, has been awarded to Oliver Leistert for From Protest to Surveillance: The Political Rationality of Mobile Media (Peter Lang).
It has been revealed that an ultra-secretive government agency called CSEC is collecting hugely revealing information on thousands of law-abiding Canadians. Taxpayers are on the hook for over $4.2 billion to pay for these invasive spying activities.
Do you want intimate details of your private life to be collected and stored in insecure government databases? Watch the video and join the campaign!
