"Australia: Unprecedented surveillance bill rushed through parliament in 24 hours.

Australian police can now hack your device, collect or delete your data, take over your social media accounts - all without a judge's warrant."

@hund At least the govt and police here haven’t already been using their powers to silence journalists and whistleblowers.

Oh wait…

@hund parliament voting at night to rush a bill through? I thought this kinda stuff could happen only in Poland...

@hund I think the worst thing really is they can even legally modify your data, now there is no need for detective work, just decide on a guy and plant evidence against them.

@hund That is the sort of thing I expect from the US Congress... not other countries. How sad.

@hund I guess Australia is no longer one of the places I might consider moving to some day.
