The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has spent years investigating this mass surveillance grid put in place in the absence of public awareness, scrutiny, debate or oversight.The public has a right to know about this program – and to stop it. The PCJF has established a national campaign, One Nation Under Surveillance, with a proactive website providing the tools and information you can use
to be informed and act now.
Silently, but constantly, the government is now watching, recording your everyday travels and storing years of your activities in massive data warehouses that can be quickly “mined” to find out when and where you have been, whom you’ve visited, meetings you’ve attended, and activities you’ve taken part in. This is all done by using an elaborate network of Automatic License Plate Recognition cameras, also known as tag readers.
Critical questions have not been answered by the authorities using this technology – what data is being collected, what happens to it, how long it is kept, is it shared or given to other agencies, how is it cross-referenced with other personal information?
We demand, as an initial matter, that Congress hold oversight hearings to determine just how vast and intrusive the network has become.
Join the tag reader mapping project by contributing photos and locations of tag reader units in your community.
