Incredible. Rohingya groups have initiated class actions in the UK and US against Facebook for facilitated genocide in Myanmar. It is high time that Meta is held to account for its action and inaction in Myanmar. theguardian.com/technology/2…

On the recent supposed export ban from Israel, here is Eitay Mack view : "the ministry has simply added one more bureaucratic step – the need for permission to start export negotiations with these countries – to the otherwise unobstructed process." aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/…

🔴 « @GDarmanin a cru bon d’évoquer ces migrants qui "menacent de jeter les bébés dans une eau à quelques degrés" (…) dire cela 4 jours après le drame, c’est un argument dégueulasse. C’est laisser entendre que, quelque part, les morts de la Manche l’ont bien mérité » @mathieu_m.

Next week the EU Parliament's lead committee (IMCO) will vote on the text of the Digital Services Act. This legislation could fix Big Tech's toxic business model, reshaping the internet as we know it. A ban on surveillance advertising is a crucial piece of the puzzle. 1/7

Out of curiosity, how many OSINT communities you know have ethical guidelines / code of conduct? I don't think I know any of them, the one I checked this morning were saying "keep it legal and not political"
