> All-seeing, all-knowing: the proposal for a National Crime Agency in the UK
> The UK government has announced plans to establish a National Crime Agency, intended to a provide a "multi-agency national response" to a number of issues - organised crime, border security, economic crime, and the exploitation of children. Widely reported in the press as an "FBI-style" agency, the NCA is deemed necessary for a number of reasons. The primary motivation seem to be that "cutting crime is the sole objective that the government has set for the police", but the current response to organised crime is "patchy and fragmented".

> Stop the EU plane passenger database
> We urge the EU to abandon its plans to adopt a EU-PNR system. The EU should not use PNR data or transfer them to third countries. The discussion about the EU-PNR systems shows that all travel movements of innocent individuals are to be monitored. This form of “total surveillance” must be prevented. Otherwise, the protection of privacy and civil liberties is at risk. The monitoring of travel movements of citizens in absence of an initial suspicion is a non-justified interference with the fundamental right to privacy/private life! As the data are exclusively collected by private airlines, the accuracy of the data can not be guaranteed. Mistakes arising in this context may lead to serious restrictions to the freedoms of individuals concerned.

> (Be) Petition for dismissed researcher Barbara van Dyck
> On Friday June 3th 2011, the Catholic University of Leuven sacked researcher Barbara Van Dyck because of her public support for the actions of Field Liberation Movement (FLM) in the context of an action against a genetically modified potato field in Wetteren, Belgium on Sunday May 29th. Whether one agrees with the aim and tactic of this action or not, the sanction is disproportionate and a breach of academic freedom and freedom of speech. We appeal to academics worldwide to resist this dismissal and to sign this open letter.

> Police search building Dresden for antifascist activists
> On may 3d 150 policemen invaded the communal building Praxis in Dresden, where many people live or have their workspace. Apparently people living there are being accused of forming a criminal organisation to commit illegal actions against fascists. Nazis have made a yearly march in Dresden to commemorate the bombing of the city into the largest neonazi manifestation in Germany, but the last two years they were unable to march because of massive blockades in the city. During the last attempt, frustrated neonazis attacked precisely the building that the police choose to invade now.

> (Greece) Asylum seekers are put in jail!
> (...) We were given notice that from that point on, whoever applies for asylum without holding traveling documents will be detained (we put emphasis on the fact that only few asylum seekers have traveling documents). Despite the fact, that we considered that such an action from the police authorities (...) The police authorities, punishing with imprisonment everyone who is trying to practice his/her right to apply for asylum, are basically demolishing such entitlement. This practice is a cruel violation of human rights of the refugees. The rights of the refugees are ratified in the international conventions and therefore compel our country
