A Facebook petition has recently been launched to protest online snooping legislation suggested by the authorities, which aimed at bombarding Home Secretary Theresa May with tons of irrelevant emails.
The group named “National cc your emails to Theresa May Day” suggested to show opposition to new powers for tracking Internet communications by copying May’s address into all letters sent during one day. This protest is scheduled to start on the oncoming May Day, the 1st of May. Thus far, the group has over 13,000 members.
Although the very idea of helping the authorities in tracking online communications by copying the Home Secretary into every email sent seems tongue-in-cheek, its purpose is to emphasize the wave of public bad feelings over the too controversial plans.
The country’s authorities have faced condemnation of plans that implied creating a database of emails sent within the United Kingdom, with the excuse provided being the common reasons of terrorism and pedophiles. As for Theresa May, who approved the British citizen Richard O’Dwyer’s extradition to the United States, she is seen to be trying to push through the proposed laws as quickly as she could, paying no attention to the outcry from both civil liberties campaigners and opposition within the Coalition.
One of the Facebook group’s members admitted that he had joined the group just to protest a move to an “authoritarian society”. He believes that this Coalition government, which continues the work of the other big business party in New Labour, is only plunging the country into an authoritarian society. He claims that neither Theresa May nor her colleagues are interested in their citizens aside from exploiting and monitoring them, trying to kettle ideas. It was rightly pointed out that the web is a great invention which enables people with knowledge, while for the politicians it serves them better to keep people stupid. For example, the proposed laws, which many netizens hope won’t pass, represent an unacceptable attack on personal freedoms.
Although changing government plans might appear difficult, group members still hope that they will be able to somehow widen protests against the proposed policy. Of course, they don’t believe the move they scheduled will achieve anything, but giving Theresa May and her assistants a headache for a day is still a little victory.

|If people were really bothered about snooping, they wouldn't be on facebook!|
The facebook thing is so funny, I was sure that Big Brother would happen because people are too stupid to stop it but I didn't realise that people are so stupid that big brother wouldn't even have to make an effort and people just reveal their lives publicly by choice
Let's stop snooping, start by removing faceshit from the internet

|"start by removing faceshit from the internet"|
By having no avatar, it seems that you've started the ball rolling.
|Theresa May hasn't the intelligence to operate a bath plug. Shame she can't wash down the plughole along with all the water waste.|
Whatever the needs to fight terrorists and those who might seriously harm us, or to fight pedophiles, intercepting and storing EVERYONE'S emails, phone calls, records of who telephoned or mobile phoned and EVERYONE'S COMPLETE WEB ACCESS HISTORY is a TOTALITARIAN STEP only echoed by IRAN and CHINA.
It's a TOTALITARIAN STEP we MUST PREVENT AT ALL COSTS.
The ability to store, search and rummage through all of our private communications except postal letters without reason or warrant, should be enough to very seriously worry all of us. Who knows WHO might act totally without a conscience and for goodness knows what purpose or purposes.
If it takes MILLIONS of US out on the Streets in every major population centre and throughout Central London for days, weeks or months or more to stop this, then SO BE IT.
Great Britain is the United Kingdom, NOT RUSSIA, SYRIA, NORTH KOREA, IRAN or CHINA.
We won two world wars to protect our Liberty, Freedom and HUMAN RIGHTS, including the RIGHT TO PRIVACY in our PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS.
The outcry has to EQUAL that as if they were opening and reading all our postal letters and parcels.
TAKE TO THE STREETS AND DEMONSTRATE PEACEFULLY ALL UK CITIZENS, before RIOTING BREAKS OUT ALL ACROSS EVERY BRITISH STREET IN THE LAND.

|When they bring these laws in,everyone that has an email account should send their friends a terrorist/assassination plotted email every single day,mire these feckers down with so much **** it becomes pointless for them to do it.|
|In my opinion facebook is the worst social networking sites. It says that it doesnt share ones private details but the ads that shows up on facebook are related to the details of user.....|
|also daily several "attacks" OR methods are posted to hack someone facebook account.|
|Here ios a IDEA, you want to catch Pedophiles. WATCH WHERE THEY SHARE THERE DATA, not watch everyone's home, private lives and internet History.|
You want to Catch Terrorist's, Go to the CIA's Head Quarters. Problem Solved.
