How would you feel if your internet service provider (ISP) and phone company was forced to keep a record of every article you read online, every email you sent or received, all location data collected by your phone, every call you made, everything you bought online?
How would you feel if it was made an offense to refuse to hand over your computer passwords?
The Attorney General Nicola Roxon set up a Parliamentary Inquiry last month that could require ISPs to store all this information on you for at least two years and make it available to government to access.
We have very limited time to have our voices heard on this and tell the government that we are citizens, not suspects.
Submissions are due on Monday 20 August.
