RALLY AT OAKLAND CITY HALL (OSCAR GRANT PLAZA) THIS TUESDAY AT 5:30PM, TO STOP THE CITY COUNCIL FROM CREATING A MASSIVE SURVEILLANCE CENTER FOR OPD AND DHS!!!
The Department of Homeland Security and Oakland Police are building a massive surveillance center to videotape, track, and log the movements of all Oakland residents and visitors! The Domain Awareness Center (DAC) as its called, is an unprecedented attack on our civil liberties, giving the police department unlimited access to our whereabouts. This includes a computer system that aggregates information from thousands of surveillance cameras and license plate readers, and in the future may include facial recognition software and social media data mining.
The NY Times made Oakland’s new surveillance center national news in a front page article warning Americans of its implications as similar technology spreads to other cities. This is another OPD and DHS attack on our rights, essentially criminalizing our every day lives as we are forced to live under constant surveillance as if in a prison complex.
WE CAN STOP THIS! LET’S SHOW THE CITY COUNCIL THAT THE PEOPLE OF OAKLAND ARE AGAINST WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE AND POLICE INTRUSION INTO OUR LIVES!!!
RALLY AT CITY HALL AT 5:30 PM THIS TUESDAY, NOV 19th. SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL YOUR LIST SERVS AND GROUPS. CITY HALL MEETING BEGINS AT 6:30pm
