Submission + - Data Retention Activists Harassed by Authorities

AllYourDataAreBelongToUs writes: Activists who took part in a protest against EU data retention laws on October 11th were harassed by the Dutch authorities, allegedly due to ties with a pro-pedophile political party known as PNVD.

Is this the thin end of a wedge to silence concerns over data retention policies in the European Union?
