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.

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?
