Government intelligence agencies have direct access to telecommunication companies’ infrastructure which allows them to spy and record phone calls leaving no paper trail, the UK’s largest mobile phone company Vodafone has revealed.

The British operator said wires have been attached to its phone networks in some of the 29 countries in which it operates in Europe, as well as around the world, the Guardian reported. Governments similarly connect to other telecom groups, reportedly allowing them to listen to or record live conversations. 

- In some cases, the surveillance agencies can also track the whereabouts of a customer.
“- For governments to access phone calls at the flick of a switch is unprecedented and terrifying,” Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti told the Guardian.  

“Snowden revealed the internet was already treated as fair game. Bluster that all is well is wearing pretty thin – our analogue laws need a digital overhaul.”

RT  June 07, 2014
The world’s second-largest mobile phone company has broken its silence over its cooperation with government agencies and their efforts to eavesdrop on unsuspecting customers, but what it fails to mention speaks the loudest.

Assange discusses internet-based Orwellian future
Vodafone’s 88-page ‘Law Enforcement Disclosure Report’ reveals how 29 governments around the world use an open back door to eavesdrop on its customers’ private communications.

“[I]n every country in which we operate, we have to abide by the laws of those countries which require us to disclose information about our customers to law enforcement agencies or other government authorities, or to block or restrict access to certain services,” the Vodafone reports says.  

“Those laws are designed to protect national security and public safety or to prevent or investigate crime and terrorism, and the agencies and authorities that invoke those laws insist that the information demanded from communications operators such as Vodafone is essential to their work.”

However, Vodafone’s corporate candidness stopped short of describing its alleged collaboration with GCHQ, Britain’s equivalent of the US National Security Agency.

Snowden’s whistleblowing revealed that GCHQ has tapped into transatlantic fiber optic cables in a secret program, codenamed Tempora, which reportedly allows the British spy agency access to telephone communications and Internet data on millions of people. GCHQ, documents showed, teamed up with seven telecom companies, including Vodafone.

The report provided a rather chilling assessment as to the power of the intelligence agencies when it makes the decision to spy on a private citizen. [...]



Assange, NY forum talk Orwellian future, internet as 'suppression' tool

RT 2014-06-07
In the near future governments will control every aspect of human life, with even human DNA taken at birth and encoded right into your ID, says Julian Assange. A conference in New York discusses whether the internet might become a tool of suppression.

"We will see a situation that Sweden has had for more than a decade... which is everyone has a number, everyone's DNA is taken at birth, their DNA is encoded onto their identity documents or connected to it, to their tax records, to their credit report," Assange said.

The founder of the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks was speaking by video link to the Personal Democracy Forum, a New York-based annual conference that follows how the internet is changing politics, governance, and advocacy.

Our generation will be the last that gets to make the choice “whether we let the internet allow everybody to learn on Earth or we let it be used as a tool of suppression," Mishi Choudhary, Executive Director of Software Freedom Law Center responded.

In March, Assange predicted a bleak future for upcoming generations, saying that we are “moving into a new totalitarian world” as the NSA and GCHQ will soon have the ability to spy on the entire Earth, as their capabilities double almost every 18 months.

“- The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there, and arguably will be there in a few years,” he said, “And that’s led to a huge transfer of power from the people who are surveiled upon to those who control the surveillance complex... 

It’s an interesting postmodern version of power.”
