People’s Review of the Intelligence Service 2015

It's the final day for submissions to the Government's Intelligence Review.

To mark the day, and as a reaction to the inadequacies of the official review, the Stop the Spies coalition has released the People's Review of the Intelligence Services.

The People's Review is built on submissions collected at public meetings in Wellington, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch. Topics of the submissions included issues of privacy, oversight, the effect of surveillance on society, the lawfulness of the agencies' activities, NZ's membership in the 5 Eyes network and whether having the GCSB and the SIS was even desirable and what the alternatives could be. 

The NZ Council for Civil Liberties is a member of the Stop the Spies coalition.
