This sign saying "Do you have something to hide?" was placed in front of the new headquarters of the German Intelligence Service in Berlin earlier this month when more than 100 people protested against mass surveillance of communications by international security services. The protest's organisers included the International League for Human Rights, Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders.
