Ett nederländskt underhållningsprogram har synpunkter på TTIP och framför det på ett sätt som de tänker att Cecilia Malmström ska kunna ta till sig av.

Jag utgår från att alla våra svenska parlamentariker röstade för TTIP, för jag har inte hört ett ord om något annat. Föresten, jag har inte hört ett ord om TTIP i svenska media idag... Man hör bara Grekland, Grekland, Grekland när Kinas ekonomi rasar och demokratin röstas bort i EU-parlamentet.

Ping +Piratpartiet, var är ni?

Edit: Hittade listan. Bara Miljöpartiet, Vänstern och FI får godkänt.
Using the Greek crisis as the perfect smoke screen, the European Parliament voted TODAY to back a compromise on the most controversial piece in Europe’s future free trade pact with the U.S., the "TTIP".

The compromise was about the notorious "ISDS". The "ISDS" are arbitration courts common in some trade deals that allow foreign investors to sue national governments over losses or interference with their profits, referred to as the "Investor State Dispute Settlement" provision.

The compromise states the system of the "ISDS" will be abandoned, and a new one will be created instead.

Get it?

They just changed the name.

Off course all sorts of nonsense were said how this new system will be transparent, with public participation subjected to bla… bla… bla…

I don't give a toss as to how "public" and "transparent" this new system will be, WHY THE HELL do you even need ANY system where corporations can sue sovereign governments in the first place???

And why the hell the members of the EU parliament who pretend to represent people's and national interests and NOT corporate interests, go along with this insanity?

Don't miss out on this celebration/comedy/parody of the 80's.

Watch the movie at: or here if you are in Sweden:

Then listen to the music video while reading about the movie

(The video is stupidly region locked although it's "released for free on the internet".)

TPP, TTIP och TISA är handelsavtal som i grunden handlar om att minska möjligheterna för enskilda länder att stifta egna lagar och regler. Det har sagts att oron för delen som kallas 'Investor-State Dispute Settlements' måste understiga vad man från politiskt håll anser är vinster för samhället. Hur den typen av vinster ser ut är svårt att sia om och måste ställas mot eventuella nackdelar.

Som till exempel att vi redan nu vet att vi kommer att få problem att stifta våra egna lagar, då exempelvis bekämpningsmedel inte får den kvalitetshöjande reglering inom EU, som planerats. EU har visserligen officiellt gått ut och lovat att handelsavtalen inte ska kunna orsaka försämrad etisk standard, men nu har man alltså sett det som mer värdefullt att få igenom handelsavtalet. Det är alltså inte ens påskrivet, och det påverkar redan lagstiftningen.

Det handlar inte längre om något som kan tolkas som "överdriven oro", utan rationell och verklig anledning att se det som att sådana här handelsavtal inte borde få genomföras. I alla fall inte så länge det handlar om en helt otransparent process, där folk inte får bidra med kunskap eller bli informerade om vad som händer.

This is huge! Consider all cell phone communication relying on the 3G, 4G or LTE encryption insecure!

NSA and GCHQ (and who knows who else) can passively listen and record all cellphone communication and likely have the keys to decrypt the communication if they would like to.

Given that this is about the keys stored in SIM-cards it could also mean that things like credit cards and other security cards are a lot less secure than you thought.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Swedish FRA is in on it too. And there is only one political party that gives a sh*t about this type of problem here and don't justify everything with "anti-terror". Help us +Piratpartiet!
Confirmation of what we all figured was happening anyways: NSA and GCHQ can listen to all your cell phone communications. They stole encryption keys from a major SIM manufacturer.

EU's law about "the right to be forgotten" is such a joke.

The text quoted below is what a site administrator gets when a page is removed from Google's search result. The targeted page is just a bunch of names of people that got married, hardly anything sensitive or something of private matter. As site owner you can't even know what name that was a problem. Was it even the same person that filed for the request? Is it just someone who now is trying to wipe the (European) web from any mention of a particular name? What can a site owner do to get the page back if he don't even is allowed to know what the problem is?

This is actually the most stupid and dangerous thing I have read in a long time. I knew the consequences of recent events in France would go in this direction, but I could not imagine it would go to this level in no time at all.
WTF? David Cameron vows to ban TLS (and any other type of encryption MI5 can't read) if reelected.

Yes, he said that.
