๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง#Chatcontrol: That's how "objective" the European Parliament's voting system is. The ePrivacy derogation on #chatcontrol simply becomes a vote on "combating child sexual abuse online".

With #chatcontrol the EU Parliament today adopted the first EU regulation on #masssurveillance.

72% of EU citizens do not want their private and intimate messages or nudes to be searched by private companies without cause.

My plenary speech:

๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Majority of the European Parliament allows e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol). We will take legal action.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Yesterday, the regulation on #chatcontrol was adopted by the EU Parliament: a sad day for all those who rely on free and confidential communications and advice, including abuse victims and press sources. This is how the Parliamentโ€™s groups voted:

@smartyflix Whilst I agree this is a great feature of NewPipe, supporting PeerTube and I love NewPipe, and it was good to highlight this feature. I wonder if it would be easier to suggest users use a dedicated PeerTube app like Thorium or TubeLab, both available on F-Droid.

@tilvids Without @yunohost I would have no idea how to self-host multiple apps on the same VPS. Yunohost is not perfect but it's a great start to get over the learning curve of self-hosting. Might I suggest you do a dedicated video about it, if you haven't already.

@smartyflix Mentioning @yunohost would have been useful here to show a super simple option for installing multiple self-hosted applications on a single VPS.

@aral Ah, sorry I didn't realise. I know you are not a native of our Island and I thought maybe you were not entirely familiar with some of the political and societal nuances of life here.

@feditips Fediverse hosts should setup donation subscriptions using LibrePay so users cab set it and forget it. Diasp.eu has annual donation subscription, very convenient for me.

@aral Personally I don't agree that suspension was the right move and it's just pandering to media pressure. It just removes one more venue for vaccination in a critical time. Rather I believe the hospital should have been fined for breach of contract.

@aral Also Beacon is owned by Denis O'Brien, a villain we love to hate. He's been involved in political and corruption scandals in the past. Just mentioning his name will raise the anger of most Irish people.

@aral The issue was that the hospital CEO made personal offer to private school of his children. Those vaccinated were from the category that's way behind in the queue of the national vaccine plan. So they effectively skipped the queue, denying others their vaccine. There were still patients in the hospital awaiting vaccine. Beacon is being paid to do this with tax money. It was pure cronyism. One many frustrating actions of elites in our society.

RT @eff: Police and other groups who are particularly tech-savvy can easily figure out which songs result in videos being removed and use tโ€ฆ
