ALA-Statement zum PRISM-Skandal

Aus der ALA-Pressemitteilung “ALA calls for national dialogue to reform the nation’s surveillance laws”:

The American Library Association (ALA) is, frankly, saddened that two major revelations about our country’s surveillance practices confirm our gravest worries: the government has obtained vast amounts of personal information about the activities, especially electronic communications of all kinds, of essentially everyone in the United States, including millions of innocent people.

ALA-Präsidentin Maureen Sullivan sieht in Bibliotheken einen geeigneten Ort, die Debatte um die beste Balance zwischen Freiheit und Sicherheit zu führen.
