Anti-surveillance fashion

"A new clothing line lets you camouflage yourself as a car to mess with surveillance cameras"



A new clothing line lets you camouflage yourself as a car to mess with surveillance cameras. The garments in the Adversarial Fashion collection are covered with license plate images that trigger automated license plate readers, or ALPRs, to inject junk data into systems used to monitor and track civilians.




The Adversarial Fashion garments, she said, highlight the need to make computer-controlled surveillance less invasive and harder to use without human oversight.

"A person walking along the sidewalk or in a crosswalk is often close enough, as the readers take in a pretty large visual field, and have ... problems with specificity." The line is conceptual, she said, "but I worked pretty hard to make sure that it can work on the street in daylight."

The collection includes shirts, hoodies, jackets, dresses and skirts covered in modified license plate images and other circuitry patterns. Some of the garb features wording from the Fourth Amendment in bold yellow letters written over separate license plates made to look like the kind you see on vintage California cars:






Along the same line in sticking it to Big Brother Bernie Sanders is making it part of his platform.

edition.cnn.com...



A criminal justice plan from presidential candidate Bernie Sanders would ban police from using facial recognition software.

The Democratic senator and 2020 hopeful also called for a pause of the use of algorithmic assessment tools in the criminal justice system until they are audited.

"We must ensure these tools do not have any implicit biases that lead to unjust or excessive sentences," the Sanders proposal outlines.

An extensive ProPublica investigation in 2016 detailed how algorithmic systems used to predict future criminals were flawed…..

......

To all you ATS’ers that put down San Fran as a “socialist/commie” stronghold well guess again…

Who would have thought that the Liberal West Coast would take on the Feds when it comes to surveillance.



“In May, San Francisco banned police and local government departments from using facial recognition technology — becoming the first city in the United States to do so. Somerville, Massachusetts, and Oakland, California, have also banned the use of such technology.

San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin, who introduced the city's bill, told CNN Business earlier this year that the technology is "so fundamentally invasive" that it shouldn't be used.”

How long do you think it will take before the programmers write the fixes to exclude those false signals? And maybe write in a trigger to a facial-recognition aspect to gain the identity of the individuals and put that data into a special slot?

Anyone who has actually lived there and knows the people. I can't see how anyone would be against Bernies proposal.

But I'm sure they'll be along soon to tell us why government surveillance is good. Trump did just try to make parts of the Patriot Act permanent.

If you are hearing what you're hearing from the establishment, you are trusting Big Brother to police Big Brother. Kinda bizarre.

In some ways I'd rather they had the tech than not , for use in legitimate police work like tracing abductees for example .

This just made me laugh out loud in a restaurant full of people...
Thank you i love these moments


Actions like these, that throw sticks into the wheels of big brother, all the while staying non violent, are good to vent some frustration.

But seriously this is a real global thread!

Maybe "we the people" (this term is not limited to the USA) will realize that a very small group makes a very big brother, and it will succeed in the most dystopian way if we don't set our differences aside for now and find comon grounds, to demand them to come clean in terms of surveillance and the technology involved.

We all love freedom no matter the ideology you identify with, the whole identity thing actually made us give up freedoms because they managed to paint every other identity as dangerous.

The rampant left vs. right division seen in the USA will make sure you will accept something far worse than the patriot act!

It's a pity to see a great nations devided over identity. And guess what it's not the politicians fault, because they are nothing without YOU!

I'm afraid we missed the crossroad a while ago, so there is only off-road left to get back onto the path of freedom.
The walls aren't up yet and we can still see the other path, but it takes some balls to cross a field of uncertainty...

It will probably boil down to what you love more, your freedom or your identity?

Sincerely NoClue

While in other news.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said in a letter to the heads of two key senate committees that all provisions of the USA Freedom Act should be permanently reauthorized including the program that collected and analyzed Americans’ calls and texts.

So where can I buy one of those camouflage suits?

If you notice the bern did not say he would shut down the NSA face recognition all data will run through. So this is a staw man from berni.

Bernie has far less than a zero point zero percent chance of winning the nomination, and even less chance than that of winning the Presidency.

So who cares what his proposals are?

Nobody

I dont know you tell me. Algorithms take money and time to adjust so it will still have an effect on "Big Brother"
At least its something top begin with. I see so many threads on ATS calling for action that never transpires.

This not only plays with the system but it sends a message to any other people on the street who see you wearing it.

And maybe just maybe they stop and pause and think....

I highly respect your opinion. Like quite a few I thought at 1st that Trump was not part of the swamp. then he gave Hillary a pass, then Jared Kushners involvement with Russia, then his appt of Barr ....

lawandcrime.com...


According to the New York Times, Barr was at home when he received news of Epstein’s death early that Saturday morning; he “immediately knew” that his name would be attached to a new–and unexpected–scandal. Barr reportedly inserted himself directly into the matter and made a number of unconventional decisions in an attempt to subdue the impending scandal and prevent any conspiracy theories from taking root. What’s more, the Times headline suggested, Barr’s furious response may have had something to do with mounting doubts about the Trump Administration’s DOJ.


Then there was how the Rothschilds bailed him out in his past loans/property development....

More and more I see Trump as being the TPTB 2nd choice after Hillary.

Dont go their with the Patriot Act...Australia just snuck in more draconian legislation.

The noose is tightening even more

All tech in the hands of the "State" starts off with a benign purpose, or more correctly sold to us with benefits, to pre-empt backlash. "think of the lives saved, think of the children"

Like all "authority" it grows and grows till the vice around our necks cannot be expunged.

What recent legislation infringing on peoples freedoms, movement, surveillance came with a "sunset clause" hmm?

Or a review date?

We had a good example here when last month the ABC ( Govt funded ) exposed papers from a whistleblower showing abuses by the Aust military in Afghanistan, crimes punishable with serious consequences. The Feds raided the ABC. They dont even need warrants and they can keep secret the reasons for the raid and they can stop the public knowing about the raids. All in the name of "national security"


www.abc.net.au...


ABC managing director David Anderson said the broadcaster was also challenging the constitutional validity of the warrant "on the basis that it hinders our implied freedom of political communication".

Outgoing AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin denied the June raids were designed to intimidate, but refused to rule out possible criminal charges being laid against three journalists.



What concerns me is that in the future as we get sold a lot of lies to go in and start hot wars with Iran or China, people's voices will be squashed. No weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. Lies were told to justify looting and toppling regimes for the Wests economic benefits.

The lessons of Vietnam, Tonkin incident, are quickly forgotten and a new generation of cannon fodder gets sent off to die thinking they're protecting their country from an "imminent threat to their existence"
