If enforced, EU chat control will limit Free Software

Surely you have already heard about the controversial EU draft law on
mandatory chat control with the supposed aim to effectively tackle
child sexual abuse. This law implies the monitoring and scanning of
the communications of citizens – even the securely encrypted
end-to-end one.

(Is this supposed to link If enforced, EU chat control will limit Free Software - FSFE instead?)

First time here and what brought me there was the first sentence in the article: “Surely you have already heard about the controversial EU draft law…”

There is no ‘surely’ about it. Most people have not heard about this and will not be happy about it. Strikes me there is a lot of ‘marketing’ to be done to get the news out. This is a big topic and we shouldn’t sleepwalk into such surveillance.

@Kal your remark is spot on, this is why we have added a news item and a short article. Many Free Software people will have heard about this, but if we can at least reach a few more, it is helpful. So feel free to spread the word!
