As you may know, our governement is tring to force people to get one of their 'optional' ID cards through the back door. Soon it will be impossible to renew your passport unless you attend an official interview and agree to be fingerprinted and
give a wide range of personal information for a “National Identity Register” database.
NO2ID have started a campaign (http://www.renewforfreedom.org/) to get people to renew their passports this May. The benefits are two-fold:
1) You get at least ten years of privacy before your passport renewal forces you to get an ID card
2) By co-ordinating our renewals for a relatively short time period we are sending a message that we don't want ID cards to be forced upon us through the back door.
For more information see the RenewForFreedom website or see this leaflet (http://www.renewforfreedom.org/NO2ID_Fac...)
