This GCSB bill allows the New Zealand Government to SPY on any one in New Zealand. "a vote here is a vote for freedom"

The Law Society has made a stinging attack on proposed law changes governing the GCSB spy agency, saying they effectively transform it from a foreign intelligence agency to a domestic one without any justification being given.

InternetNZ has also raised serious concerns about the bill before Parliament, saying its powers are too broad.

Submissions on the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Bill closed on Friday, and hearings on it will begin early next month.

Lets Debate this New Zealand, At least have your say ?? Let the Prime Minister of New Zealand Know how New Zealanders Thinks and Feels about this issue..??

(GCSB) illegally spied on New Zealand resident Kim Dotcom and may have illegally spied on 88 other New Zealanders.

What the National Government is doing about this is not to hold an independent inquiry to see what has been going on and ensure it doesn’t happen again. Just the opposite -- it’s reaction is to change the law so the GCSB can spy on New Zealanders legally.

John Key argues the bill is a clarification but that is simply not true. The bill grants the GCSB expanded powers and functions and transforms it from an agency focussed on foreign threats to one that also spies on New Zealanders.

The New Zealand Law Society, not generally considered a conspiracy theorist organisation, said the bill allows the GCSB; “under a cloak of co-operation with some other specified agency, to perform any activities that it chooses”.

The bill’s safeguards do not protect New Zealanders freedom of expression and freedom from invasive search.

There is no basis for giving GCSB unjustifiable powers to spy on New Zealanders at the expense of our freedom. We didn’t agree to this.
