[France24] Are French civil liberties another victim of Paris attacks?

In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, France has enacted a three-month state of emergency, widening the powers of police and security agencies. It has done so with relatively little public debate about the deterioration of civil liberties. [...]

État d'urgence

L'état d'urgence a été décrété puis prolongé pour trois mois avec trop peu de débats et d'opposition pour une décision aussi grave pour les libertés, profitant de l'état de choc des parlementaires et des Français.

Dès le lundi 16 novembre, La Quadrature du Net a demandé de prendre le temps de la réflexion, de l'analyse, et du bilan, avant de se lancer dans une course aveugle vers les politiques sécuritaires.

Le gouvernement s'est au contraire précipité de faire adopter une loi en trois jours par le Parlement, prolongeant et modifiant les conditions de l'état d'urgence.
L'analyse de la loi faite par La Quadrature du Net se trouve sur le wiki de l'association.

La Quadrature du Net a aussi lancé une pétition en faveur de la mise en place d'une commission d'enquête parlementaire. Il s'agit de conduire une investigation ouverte et transparente sur les attentats et sur les lois relatives à la lutte contre le terrorisme et au renseignement qui ont été votées ces 3 dernières années.

Grâce à l'aide de nombreux citoyens, une page de wiki a été ouverte afin de recenser les joies (ou pas) de l'état d'urgence.

Surveillance

Après l'Assemblée nationale, le Sénat a adopté à son tour la proposition de loi sur la surveillance internationale.

Les sénateurs ont ensuite déposé une saisine blanche au Conseil constitutionnel. Celui-ci a, sans surprise et dans un délai de 8 jours, validé le texte le 26 novembre.

Mais les attaques contre la vie privée se font de plus en plus visibles aussi au niveau européen où les socialistes français ont lâchement réussi à supprimer une disposition du rapport de Claude Moraes, visant à demander à la Commission de vérifier la conformité des lois de surveillance françaises avec le droit européen.

L'analyse du rapport de Claude Moraes est disponible sur notre wiki.

Neutralité du Net

Le règlement relatif aux télécommunications a été adopté par le Parlement européen, avec des failles qui sont susceptibles de porter atteinte au principe de neutralité du Net, et ce, malgré les amendements soutenus par une poignée d'eurodéputés et soutenus par de nombreuses organisations citoyennes, dont La Quadrature du Net.

La campagne n'est cependant pas terminée. En effet, le BEREC (ORECE en français) organe européen qui rassemble les autorités nationales de régulations des telecommunications (l'ARCEP pour la France), négocie actuellement les lignes directrices qui seront applicables dans les États membres. Ainsi, ces lignes directrices pourront, si elles sont bien faites, combler les failles existantes et renforcer considérablement la neutralité du Net en encadrant les services spécialisés et la gestion de trafic.

For a Parliamentary Investigation Committee on the Recent Attacks and Surveillance Laws

Paris, 23 November 2015 — The killings committed in Paris and Saint-Denis on the evening of 13 November have been absolutely shocking. After the sorrow and mourning, we all try to make sense of the terrible violence of these attacks, a reminder of the current state of the world.

A Police State to Avoid Any Critical Evaluation?

Paris, 19 November 2015 — Today the French National Assembly1 adopted the bill on the state of emergency2. This text was adopted in great urgency in an unprecedented one-upmanship autoritarian atmosphere. La Quadrature du Net expresses its concerns about several measures found in the bill, especially regarding police searches of electronic devices, Internet censorship and freedom of association. Rather than enganging in any thorough consideration of the causes that led to the killings and of the way to solve this complex situation, the entire French political class betrays itself by responding to this unprecedented attack on our liberties with a broad restriction of our civil liberties.

  • 1. French lower legislative chamber
  • 2. The text was adopted with 551 votes in favour and 6 votes against.

Together in Sorrow, Looking at the Future

Paris, 16 November 2015 — Together with the people of France and from all around the world, La Quadrature du Net mourns the dead. After the attacks on Friday 13 November in Paris and Saint-Denis, the group is committed to contribute to a political response that is based on a careful assessment of what has led us to this tragedy.

2015 Donation Campaign: support civil liberties, support La Quadrature!

The Internetz, 12 November 2015 — La Quadrature du Net launched its yearly fundraising campaign. To maintain total independence, La Quadrature calls for supporters willing to help an association fully dedicated to the defense and promotion of civil liberties, to the engagement of citizens in political life, and to the development of a free and open digital society. At the end of a year in which fundamental freedoms in the digital space have been challenged, we need to prepare for the future.

Surveillance: would French socialist MEPs have anything to hide?

Paris, 29 October 2015 — French socialists have, once again, betrayed liberties to strenghen surveillance! Claude Moraes' report has been adopted today by the European Parliament. This report was condemning mass surveillance and calling for an investigation of French surveillance laws. But thanks to the pressure exerted by French Socialist MEPs on their party, any mention of investigation into French laws has been erased.

Surveillance law: France carefully listening to the world! (at last...)

Paris, 28 October 2015 — French Senate has approved last night the bill on international surveillance (fr), legalising mass surveillance beyond French borders, incidentally affecting numerous French people. La Quadrature Du Net salutes French consistency in terms of serious violations of Human Rights.

[Arstechnica] Net neutrality: EU votes in favour of Internet fast lanes and slow lanes

MEPs confused by false claims, tired of the arguments, keen to conclude the case. [...]

New legislation offers some good news, but stronger amendments similar to those in the US were rejected by the EU. [...]

Net Neutrality: Major Setback for Free and Open Internet

Strasbourg, 27 October 2015 — Today, the European Parliament voted the Telecommunication Single Market regulation text by 500 votes against 163, hereby ending the negotiations on this matter. Despite numerous citizen's calls, despite repeated international calls to support the amendments, including Tim Berners-Lee's, this ambiguous text leaves important loopholes and cannot ensure Net Neutrality1. Worst, it allows commercial discrimination. It is a profound disillusion for all those who, throughout the years, battled to ensure Net Neutrality in Europe.

  • 1. Net Neutrality is a cornerstone principle of the Internet which guarantees that telecoms operators remain mere transmitters of information and do not discriminate between their users' communications. It ensures that all users, whatever their resources, can access the same network in its entirety.

Letter to MEPs: Net Neutrality, Will You Betray Yourselves?

Paris, 26 October 2015 — Tomorrow, MEPs will vote the the Telecom Single Market regulation text. If amendments to ensure Net neutrality are not adopted, then MEPs will have betrayed their own vote of April 2014 and the citizens who elected them.

Net Neutrality: MEPs Ready to Give in to Telcos

Paris, 26 October 2015 — Tomorrow, MEPs will vote during the plenary session the Telecom Single Market regulation which includes a part on Net Neutrality, more than a year after their very positive vote. On the pretext that the dispositions, to be voted tomorrow, are less harmful that the Council's version, a large majority of the MEPs are ready to come back on the breakthroughs of the previous version by approving a text that has too many loopholes to be adopted without being amended as it will put at risk our fundamental rights and liberties.

Net Neutrality in Europe: Now or Never!

Paris, 22 October 2015 — The European Parliament will vote next Tuesday the text on Net Neutrality. Following months of trialogue negotiations, during which the Council has sought to undermine all the provisions in favour of Net neutrality, an unsatisfying compromise has been reached. The final vote on 27 October during the plenary session shall set out the rules that will be applied in France and in all other Member States. In April 2014, the European Parliament had voted a text with very strong provisions in favour of Net Neutrality. Such a vote had been possible only thanks to the important mobilisation of European citizens.

Letter to MEPs of LIBE Committee: Do Not Jeopardize Our Freedom of Speech!

Paris, 19 October 2015 – On Monday afternoon, members of the European Parliament's LIBE Committee will vote on the Dati report on the “prevention of radicalisation and recruitment of European citizens by terrorist organisations”. This report contains dangerous provisions, which aim to make online platforms and hosts responsible for the distribution of messages glorifying terrorism, creating a high risk of pre-emptive censorship. Such provisions severely threaten European citizens' freedom of speech.
