The UK Online Safety Bill is continuing to progress through UK Parliament, putting end-to-end-encryption fundamentally at risk. Element tried to explain the disaster on the horizon to Sky News this morning:

@element That was a very friendly interview. At the beginning the anchor massively misrepresented the concerns as stemming only from freedom of the press, but then they proceeded to be very understanding of the issue.

@element It is really concerning that democratic governments are after people’s privacy claiming that they want to increase people’s safety, while they’re actually doing the complete opposite. Thanks for your great job in explaining the issue!

These are the same concerns that many of us have about the @EU_Commission’s proposal to prevent child sexual abuse, which is rightfully called #ChatControl. That’s why the European Pirates fight to stop it.
