IFEX has joined Privacy International's (PI) worldwide campaign to force GCHQ to reveal the extent of its illegal spying - and you can as well.
On 6 February, the UK Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) ruled that intelligence sharing between the United States and the United Kingdom was unlawful prior to December 2014.
Now, not only British citizens, but anyone in the world, can ask GCHQ if information about them was unlawfully shared by the American intelligence agency, NSA. Given the mass surveillance capabilities of the NSA and GCHQ, an unlimited number of people could have been affected by the unlawful spying. Were you among them?

Since the campaign started, over 25,000 people from around the world have signed on to hold GCHQ acountable for illegal surveillance and find out if they were targeted unlawfully. PI intends to collate the inquiries and submit them to the UK tribunal. Those who have been found to have been illegally spied on can then seek the deletion of their records, including emails, phone records, and internet communications.
Join the campaign to find out if GCHQ illegally spied on you.
Because people located all over the world are affected by illegal intelligence sharing, not only British citizens, anyone in the world, can ask if their records collected by the NSA were unlawfully shared with GCHQ.
