Australian Senate Introduces Laws To Allow Total Internet Surveillance

New laws due to be passed in Australia allow intelligence agency ASIO to spy on domestic internet traffic like never before. The Sydney Morning Herald reports: “Spy agency ASIO will be given the power to monitor the entire Australian internet and journalists’ ability to write about national security will be curtailed when new legislation – expected to pass in the Senate as early as Wednesday – becomes law, academics, media organisations, lawyers, the Greens party and rights groups fear.”
