ABSTRACT
PRISM is the tip of the iceberg. The case on which I am presently engaged on behalf of German-Finnish internet enterpreneur Kim Dotcom, whose business was taken down by the US without a hearing, has revealed massive and intrusive surveillance by the international intelligence community Five Eyes, based on the postwar agreement between the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We believe this allows complete data capture across these five states, prohibited by their domestic laws. Kim's case has made headlines in New Zealand for a year, prompting apologies from the Prime Minister and massive introspection about trust in the government — a precursor of what is about to start on both sides of the North Atlantic? It's incredibly poignant that an American has fled to China to escape a US government so estranged from its founding principles. Barack Obama is a civil liberties nightmare — in a way more dangerous than George Bush, since the rhetoric sounds so rational from his mouth. The US seems intent on infantilising its population over the supposed threat of terror; the huge over-reaction to the Boston bombing and the pursuit of the Prism programme are two manifestations.
