ProXPN applauds the collective move by governments and civil societies in condemning surveillance programs.

As reported on the 16th August 2013 by advocacy.globalvoicesonline.org (http://advocacy.globalvoicesonline.org/2013/08/16/from-north-to-south-the-government-is-watching-you/), as the revelations surrounding the alleged US NSA surveillance program continue to unfold, other governments and private citizens alike have raised their voices in the opposition to such infringements on the privacy of internet users all over the world.

According to the report, Latin American countries have had a particularly stinging response, which was intensified after leaked reports indicated that the NSA surveillance program had targeted “commercial secrets” of Latin American allies and tapped multiple telecommunications networks in Brazil.

The 2013 Mercosur Summit, a meeting comprising of Latin American countries released a statement stating, “We emphatically reject the interception of telecommunication and espionage activities in our countries, as they are a violation of human rights, the right to privacy and the right to information of our citizens.”

ProXPN perceives this as a step in the right direction by this government and civil society groups in the fight to protect browsing liberties and is even more dedicated to ensuring that such efforts are not undermined.

ProXPN was founded on the principal of ensuring people can access the internet with peace of mind. By encrypting users data, masking users online identities and concealing their locations ProXPN VPN reassures users of a secure online presence.
