The petition text:
Dear David Cameron and Nick Clegg

- Don't waste billions on Big Brother projects
Your comments on this campaign
Last week, the government announced new plans to spy on us all. They want to log the e-mail, internet, phone and text messages of everyone in the UK. Pretty much every other government project is facing cuts. But this new snooping project has just been promised £2 billion.
The Conservatives and the Lib Dems both promised to "reverse the rise of the surveillance state". If we let them break that promise so easily, what will be next? Will we see the return of ID cards? 90 days detention without trial? We need to act fast now to stop them tearing up their promise of a fresh start on civil liberties.
A huge petition against phone and internet snooping will prove that we aren't going to take this lying down. We can make sure the government realise they should expect angry voters and bad headlines about broken promises. That could be enough to make them back down.
