    NSA ENQUIRY

    The recent NSA scandal has only highlighted just how urgent the need for stricter data protection standards is. The Moraes report does not go far enough in its critique of this alleged mass surveillance. We are proposing an amendment that calls for any criminal charges against whistle-blower Edward Snowden to be dropped, and for him to be granted asylum in the EU as an international human rights defender. We also want the immediate termination of the PNR agreement with the US and an immediate suspension of the TTIP agreement negotiations.
