South America looks for technologies to keep US spying at bay


12 South American nations have launched a project to create a communications system to prevent US surveillance programme from collecting data about the countries.
The information was revealed by Ecuador's Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino in an interview with Reuters at Ecuador's mission to the United Nations in New York City. Initiated after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the extent of US spying activities, the project is currently being considered by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR).
"We have decided to begin to work on new Internet communication systems of our countries, of our societies, to avoid continuing being the object and prey of illegal spying that U.S. spying entities have developed against us," Patino said.
UNASUR, consisting of 12 South American governments, has assigned its defence council to research the options and implement the idea.
"The ministers of defence have instructed their technical teams to examine the project," Patino said. "I understand there have been meetings at a technical level to advance the creation to minimize the risk of espionage."
However, Patino has not revealed any technical details, saying the project is still ‘in diapers’.
"We need technological development," he said. "This has to be constructed but all our countries have started working in this direction."
South American countries have been among the most vocal critics of the practices of US surveillance agencies. Earlier this week, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, speaking to the U.N. General Assembly, accused the United States of violating human rights and international law through espionage that included spying on her email.
Rousseff had expressed her displeasure last week by calling off a high-profile state visit to the United States scheduled for October over reports that the NSA had been spying on Brazil.
She proposed an international framework for governing the Internet and said Brazil would adopt legislation and technology to protect it from illegal interception of communications.
Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia have previously offered asylum to whistle blower Snowden after Ecuador first studied the idea, Patino said. Snowden is in Russia after Moscow granted him a year's asylum on Aug. 1.

WikiLeaks consultant Gottfrid Svartholm Warg extradited from Sweden after alleged access to NSA contractor CSC 

Statement by WikiLeaks Publisher Julian Assange concerning Sweden’s extradition of WikiLeaks consultant Gottfrid "Anakata" Svartholm Warg:
"It is time someone says it like it is: Gottfrid Svartholm Warg is a political prisoner and Sweden has fallen off the map of decent nations in its treatment of him. Gottfrid has always been ideologically driven to inform the world; he worked tirelessly to help WikiLeaks expose the slaughter of civilians in Iraq by a US helicopter gunship and was responsible for an important part of our infrastructure.
There are thousands of alleged cyber criminals, but instead of dealing with these cases, we see vast resources diverted yet again by the Swedish state into smashing Gottfrid. These attempts include the first trial of Gottfrid after US pressure (extensively documented in US embassy cables here released by WikiLeaks), his subsequent rendering from Cambodia by the Swedish intelligence service SAPO, his months of incommunicado detention in Sweden, and now his irregular extradition to Denmark - for a charge he was just acquitted of.
What is going on is obvious to anyone who cares to look; Gottfrid is being treated differently from everyone else because the Swedish state perceives him to have mocked its security complex and the United States. But within the insular, conformist world of Stockholm what has happened to Gottfrid is so demeaning to Swedish prestige, that like Sweden’s CIA rendition program, it is literally unspeakable. This Swedish social and political phenomenon has been so bad, for so long, that even the Spanish have a popular saying: ’Stop playing the Swede’—stop pretending that you don’t know what is going on. Instead of detailing the breakdown of the rule of law in Gottfrid’s case, Sweden’s national broadcaster takes pleasure in fantasies of Gottfrid’s future suffering: joking at length on air about the years of prison rape Gottfrid might have ahead of him."
