IamA Senator Scott Ludlam AMA!
Redditt, you are awesome. I enjoyed this one even more than the first one - thanks for being questioning, opinionated and argumentative. see you at the next one, and seriously, if you have time to help out, throw us a few bucks or give us a few hours on election day, please go here (https://greens.org.au/civicrm/profile/create?gid=38&reset=1) and hopefully all the greens crew up for election come out the other side. including me. see you then, with thanks.
Hi again Redditors, I'm Scott Ludlam, Australian Greens Senator up for re-election this year in Western Australia.
The election is only 5 days away and I want to talk about what's important to you and what's important this election. I also really want to talk about my work in online communication, data retention and spookery.
A bit about my work since my last AMA in May:
I have been campaigning strongly for social housing to end homelessness and helping farmers sell direct to people, and with the community radio sector we won 6 million to keep 37 stations online (http://grns.mp/comm-radio-win)
I have been trying to get answers about Australia's role in PRISM NSA debacle but there is a black out from the major parties and the media are reluctant to push, although look out for an upcoming 4 Corners program.
A bit [about me] is here (http://scott-ludlam.greensmps.org.au/about) and [more about my digi comms work] is here (http://scott-ludlam.greensmps.org.au/campaigns/defending-digital-freedom-right-liberty-and-security-online)
Go on. Ask Me Anything.
