Oakland is receiving federal money to build a Domain Awareness Center with cameras, audio recording devices and other technologies that will make it possible for the police and other government agents to monitor the movements and affiliations of all residents and visitors to the city.
We are planning to educate people about this process with a presence at the Oakland First Friday event on December 6th with a table, fliers, perhaps our own set of intrusive video cameras and street theater. Join us Tuesday evening to help plan this action. If you are interested in joining the Oakland Privacy Working Group email listserv send an email to this address:
The meeting will be at the sudoroom, 2141 Broadway, but the entrance is actually on 22nd Street upstairs.
