FREEDOM NOT FEAR DAY WASHINGTON DC, UNITED STATES
OCTOBER 11, 2008

In recognition of October 11, Freedom not Fear Day, many organizations in the
United States set out the following recommendations:
• End Watch Lists, Fusion Centers and other data profiling programs that fail to
comply with the full requirements of the federal Privacy Act;
• Affirm international human rights, including freedom of expression and
privacy protection so as to strengthen democratic institutions and protect the
rights of individuals;
• Repeal the Patriot Act and other legal authorities that permit warrantless
surveillance and unconstitutional monitoring and tracking of individuals;
• End the culture of secrecy that allows government officials to hide
mismanagement, fraud, and incompetence behind the veil of “homeland
security”;
• Establish comprehensive data protection legislation that will safeguard
personal information and reduce the risk of identity theft and security
breaches.
