A huge majority of the European Parliament today called for a stop to mass
surveillance and a digital "New Deal" to enpower European citizens and
companies following a six-month inquiry into the US National Security
Agency (NSA) and other intelligence service surveillance programmes by the
Parliamen's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs.

Today's report calls on both US and EU member states to prohibit blanket
mass surveillance activities. Rapporteur Claude Moreas (Socialists and
Democrat, S&D) expressed his satisfaction in a press conference immediately
after the vote with *544 against 78 votes*.
