Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance
Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.
Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
