Statebook: because knowledge is power

Today we launched a campaign site, portraying the seemingly unregulated amassing of personal data by the state.

Called Statebook, it is a spoof government site, listing all the information government holds an an individual citizen, based on FIPR and the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust's Database State report.

The site also shows what what new information the Government want to collect, through new schemes, like the “Intercept Modernisation Programme” which could even include amassing all of our Internet traffic data in a single government database.

It also gives you an easy way to email your MP with a customisable letter about the government's plans.

Let your friends know about the site, on Twitter, Facebook, or just by email:
