saucy doubts and fears

“It is a breach of international law, it is unacceptable, we want an apology”

That was Dilma Rousseff at the UN General Assembly just a couple of minutes ago, telling The USA what she thinks of its NSA and the way they’ve been picking up her own e-mails without asking nicely first.
But don’t worry, it’s only the UN, it’s not as if The USA ever pays attention to anything said there.
PS: We also liked this Dilma quote in the speech: “In the absence of the right to privacy, there can be no true freedom of expression and opinion, no effective democracy”. 100% agreed and if anything, it’s even more damning than the previous demand for an apology, because it requires no response from the arrogant country up North.

UPDATE: The full speech in English has just been published by the official General Assembly channels, find it here on this link.
