ONU et la surveillance des peuples

The United Nations has drawn a line in the sand when it comes to governments spying on their own citizens. On Tuesday, the general assembly adopted a resolution that underscores the right to privacy and condemns unlawful mass surveillance in the name of security, calling it a violation of human rights.

The resolution calls illegal or arbitrary watching, listening, and collecting of online chats and cell phone usage highly intrusive, saying it can interfere with the right to freedom of expression and may contradict the tenets of a democratic society, including when done on a mass scale.
