The Oakland Privacy Working Group will meet at the Sudoroom Wednesday Jan. 22nd at 6:30 to organize an action for February 4th at City Hall to stop the planned building of the DAC, an Oakland-wide surveillance grid to monitor the citizens of the East Bay.

The City Council will be voting on selecting a contractor to take over Phase II of the DAC contract from SAIC  (who was dismissed for violating Oakland’s Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance, which prohibits the city from knowingly doing business with any entity that is engaged in nuclear weapons work).  Apparently all the other alternatives have dipped their toes in the nuclear pool, as well.  The Oakland Privacy Working Group hopes to have a big presence in Oscar Grant Plaza in front of City Hall before we go in to the chambers to voice our opinions about building out this privacy-destroying networked spy hub. We are planning on a potluck at 6:15 in the plaza, bring goodies to share. There will be speakers and music, as well. Since the City Council never seems to address the DAC issue before the witching hour or later we will also have some movies in the plaza.

For more information on the insidiousness of the DAC and how it came to be in Oakland check out the DAC FAQ, the Oakland Wiki Domain Awareness Page and the Oakland Privacy WordPress.
