My name is Thomas Beagle and I'm from Tech Liberty. We're a New Zealand lobby group dedicated to protecting civil liberties in the digital age.

I'm going to survey some of the political issues that affect our civil liberties before talking in a bit more depth about where we're up to with mass surveillance in New Zealand.
