If no one said All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”, then someone should have, because it is true. The same thing goes for bullies and injustice. As scary as it can be, if you are going to consider yourself human, then you have to speak out for what it right.

I wrote in my Blogs on 12 and 25 July 2012 regarding the proposal for Internet service providers to be required to retain personal information for access by law enforcement bodies.
In a recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald report Dylan Welch spoke of the proposed legislation http://www.smh.com.au/national/intelligence-watchdog-tracking-new-powers-20120727-22zl5.html
.
In a worrying trend the Herald’s Ben Grubb had reported on previous day, 27 July 2012, Anonymous had stolen customer data from AAPT in protest at the proposal http://www.smh.com.au/it-pro/security-it/hackers-steal-aapt-customer-data-to-protest-web-spying-proposal-20120726-22tv3.html

Despite the fact they were Queensland government website s and not federal government websites, it is not the answer for Anonymous to hack government websites. This does no send the right message.
.
Australians need to voice their objections though the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, which is calling for submissions to be received by Monday, 20 August 2012.
.
Submissions may be sent by e-mail to the following address: pjcis@aph.gov.au or lodged in hard copy, preferably accompanied by an electronic version on disk, addressed to:
The Secretary
Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security
PO Box 6021
Parliament House

The terms of reference and the discussion paper are attached to my Blog of 25 July 2012.
