What could go possibly wrong with two of the most repressive regimes in the MENA region collecting a staggering amount of data? Here are just a few of the threats people face:

- Chilling effects and threats to free will — modification of our behavior
- Threats to people’s lives and livelihoods
- Threats to cybersecurity
There’s no reason to accept ubiquitous surveillance as the norm, in the MENA region or anywhere else!
