German activists start campaign to destroy surveillance cameras


www.rawstory.com

German activists are attempting to destroy security cameras in anticipation of the European Police Congress in Berlin in February, according to Michael Ebeling, an opponent of public surveillance writing for France 24′s The Observers.

The group organizing the actions, CAMOVER, believe such cameras lead police to discriminate and use stereotypes in search of criminals and criminal activity. They are encouraging people to participate in the “game” until Feb. 19, when the congress convenes.

It is apparent that the police state and big brother are serious about watching every move the public makes. Privacy is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. No matter what label you put on this level of civil obedience, it is likely that it becomes more widespread as the public becomes frustrated with the invasive nature of these cameras.
It is a matter of how far the state goes before the public says 'enough' of the 1984 totalitarian state.

What's the betting that the same people who vehemently claim cctv to be a societal evil are also the ones saying a gun is just a tool? I'd love to see a Venn diagram of the two subsets.

In america they would be doing terroistic activities im sure thats what they would say to cover up what did.

Then they would just pull more money out of thin air to correct the issue

Finally warning us anyone taking part in vandalism would be guilty of treason

Shooting masked kids (especially the blackblock types) here has the potential to incite massive uproar and set cities on fire. Literally.
Police here think twice before shooting at some confused adolescent hooded activists.

OT:
I have mixed feelings about the whole story but I must admit that a smirk appeared on my face when I watched the video in the link.

Good. I hope someday people in America get together and do the same. Some towns have. I would absolutely love to see people go around shooting all the speed and stop light scameras with shotguns.

Edit: I don't have much problem with surveillance cameras, I just hate the scameras used to ticket people and extract money like the bloodsuckers they are.

Great Idea, until they are attacked and there is no evidence because they have trashed all the cameras.

Security cameras are there to protect us.

If you have nothing to hide, why are you worried who is watching?

I have too agree, I couldn't help but smile. Whether or not I agree with the methods, I like more than anything the idea of people (young people specially) standing up and actively doing something for what they believe in. I hope these guys are doing it for the right reasons and not simply because 'hey its a thrill and me and mates find it fun'

They'll just start putting up hidden cameras.

This is great news. Good luck to all of them. I hope a UK version pops up sometime soon.

These types of campaigns have in the past effected real change. I used to live near what was at the time officially the most destroyed speed camera in the UK. For years no sooner than a new post and camera were installed than it got burned down. Eventually they gave up entirely. Today theres a camera warning sign but no camera. This camera was put in a very opportunistic spot, not for safety reasons but as an income generator.

Who could blame them?
Every time the people do something wrong they get busted by cameras.
When events like 9/11 or Sandy Hook or Aurora happen curiously no footage surfaces.
We're still waiting to see the 757 that hit the Pentagon.
Showing footage of Adam Lanza in front of the school would put many conspiracy theories to rest as well.
I expect we'll continue waiting until our great-great-grandchildren have died of old age.

Little known fact, but there have been hidden and disguised surveillance cameras operating in the British city of Bristol for a number of years now. I believe they began with 28 in one area. The point was to test a new tracking system for the local constabulary. So they didn't just record people walking by, the software knitted peoples appearances on different cameras together automatically into things like timelines of members of the public.

I think at least partially these kinds of surveillance are being superseeded by smartphone tracking. I also think smartphones have delayed but not destroyed the RFID chips under the skin agenda. They realise now that there is so much more data they can gather via smartphone that can't yet be accomplished through RFID alone.

PS to anyone who thinks this cant happen in the US, research the watching/hearing lamposts that not only see you but listen to you too.

I think more and more people need to get fed up, and start to issue warnings to their elected employees, and then if they don't back off, carry through with getting rid of the fascist crapola. Fascism is completely illegal. TSA is illegal abuse of rights. Surveillance camera's everywhere are abuse of privacy and rights. And we don't have to take the abuse and crimes without standing up and making sure they understand NO MEANS NO!

Would you mind posting your entire internet history, including whatever porn you may watch? How about telling us every single detail of your life in lurid detail?

No? That's an invasion of your privacy? WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO HIDE?!

Germany is really set to lead the way for Europe to get its sh*t together again. Their economy is doing great. In fact, I've looked at buying stuff online from a number of countries here and Germany has the best quality and lowest prices - and no shopping hassles, quite unlike what I get domestically. Grr. Finns could learn a whole lot from Germany on many levels.

Now if the German people are going to reverse some of the crap that's been thrust upon us over the years, that too will ease the pain of the other countries full of wimps (so all the rest of them). Germany and Iceland are shining the light forward for us. Might follow suit where they're making headway.

How many cases have you seen where this is the case? Where are all the perps put inside by these extensive networks. What generally happens here is that when you want video of say an over the top cop all you find is that the cameras were down for maintenance or they lost the first 20 seconds of vid in a hardware glitch.

Get rid of the stinking things! They are no use to us!

I agree with get the hell rid of them. As much good intentions may have been with their implementing the use of them ... exactly WHO has access to this information and surveillance? WHO controls the activities of the monitors of society? Why is most video evidence used by these cameras mostly biased to the controllers use? This reeks of private rights invasion to the highest crap pile yet! I think we need to watch the watchers more than ever.
