[WashingtonPost] UN votes to protect privacy in digital age

The U.N. General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution [introduced by Brazil and Germany] aimed at protecting the right to privacy against unlawful surveillance in the digital age on Wednesday in the most vocal global criticism of U.S. eavesdropping.

It [...] calls on all countries “to review their procedures, practices and legislation regarding the surveillance of communications, their interception and collection of personal data, including mass surveillance, interception and collection, with a view to upholding the right to privacy of all their obligations under international human rights law.”
