Everything tappable is already being wiretapped !! The secrets of ECHELON International Monitoring Netowrk Have you seen "ECHELON" ? _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ Have you heard about Echelon - the code name for international monitoring netowrk? It is a mega-size wire-tapping facility created by western information agencies lead by United Sates National Security Agency (NSA). Countries such as UK and Australia are also involved. It taps into all surface and stellite communication facilities thus effectively monitoring communications by telephone, fax, email, and the like. Bleach of civil privacy by Echelon was brought to debate and was criticized in a the delibrations of the European Union in 1998. Following this, a privacy advocatacy group has taken legal action to restate civil privacy. Japan also is heavily involved with Echelon. It has become known that a US military base in Misawa carries receptive devices for Echelon. Furthermore, some evidences point to a possibility that Japan's wire-tapping law forcefully adopted last year has certain interconnections with Echelon. We have organized a public gathering inviting experts from UK that has long worked on issues around Echelon and wire-tapping by police authorities. Through this, we hope to share with you the reality of illegal civil monitoring activities by information agencies and the police taking place, quietly by surely, behind the IT-revolution (Information Technology Revolution). We call upon civil society members concerned about the bleach of our right to privacy effected by mechanism such as the wire-tapping law and activities under the police authorities.
