As technologists, free and open source developers, and individuals and organizations working to protect the security of the Internet, we wish to protest in the strongest terms the continuing illegal detention in Ecuador of Ola Bini, a cyber-security expert, privacy consultant, free software contributor and advocate of digital rights. We see his ongoing, preventive detention as arbitrary and as an attack against us all.
Voter deletions in Telangana is a contentious issue with much debate and many complaints to the Election Commission of India (ECI) by political parties and voters. People have approached the High Court in Hyderabad for justice, which has not yet been delivered for all those voters who could not vote in the 2018 Telangana Assembly Elections. At the center of all of these voter deletions in Telangana is a Aadhaar project calle State Resident Data Hub (SRDH). The united Andhra Pradesh state was an early adopter of the Aadhaar project implementing it in the state as early as 2010.
