Human rights and technology: Whistle blowers and activists should be protected 

Whistle blowers and human rights defenders must be protected, say foreign affairs MEPs in a resolution adopted in May. They also stress that the mass surveillance of citizens by the US National Security Agency, with the active complicity of some EU countries, has seriously damaged the credibility of the EU's human rights policy. The House will vote on this non-binding resolution on Thursday.

Procedure: non legislative resolution

Procedure Code: (2015/2058(INI))

Vote: Thursday 9 July
