       We believe that privacy and access
       to information are basic human rights.
    Isn't there an apparent contradiction here?  The more information I have 
    about you, the less privacy you have.  No doubt these folks are defining 
    both privacy and access to information in a way that avoids the conflict, 
    but the plainly stated combination sure sounds hard to reconcile.
