Spot the Surveillance

How to Identify Police Surveillance at Protests and Large Gatherings
rC1
Kurt Opsahl
The Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Kurt Opsahl with show you how to identify surveillance technologies that law enforcement may use at protests and other public gathering to spying on people exercising their fundamental rights. Learn how to spot the surveillance so you can advocate effectively for the policies necessary to protect your rights and bring transparency to the police surveillance.
If you attend a protest, demonstration or any mass gathering in a public space, the police are probably surveilling you. Whether it’s sophisticated facial recognition, ubiquitous video recording, or the instant analysis of our biometric data, law enforcement agencies are following closely behind their counterparts in the military and intelligence services in acquiring privacy-invasive technologies, from automated license plate readers to body-worn cameras to drones and more. In this talk, Kurt Opsahl with show you how to identify surveillance technologies in use: • Where to look for these devices • How these technologies look • How these technologies function • How they are used by police • What kind of data they collect • Where to learn more about them Knowledge is power. Knowing what technologies are in use can help you understand the threats to your privacy and security, as well as tools to advocate for limits on police use of surveillance that may chill people’s rights to express themselves on public issues. Just as analog surveillance historically has been used as a tool for oppression, policymakers and the public must understand the threat posed by emerging technologies to successfully defend human rights in the digital age.

This talk is a comprehensive overview about yet another tumult: the protests that occured in Bulgaria in 2020, months of demonstrations against an European Union member state government that were largely unacknowledged in the rest of the EU - from the perspective of an expat and an involved small scale activist on the fringe.

Since October 2019 the Chilean people have been fighting for social dignity and equality. During the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in the 80's nearly everything in Chile was privatized including the health system, education and pensions. As a consequence the people suffer economically, get deeply indebted and become slaves of the banks. The Chilean people are fighting for and demanding a new constitution which is free of neoliberalism.

Im Zuge des diesjährigen rC3 Events soll der Konflikt um die Region Berg-Karabach in diesem Vortrag aufgearbeitet werden. Der seit 26 Jahren andauernder Konflikt entwickelte sich im September diesen Jahres in einen zwischenstaatlichen Krieg zwischen Armenien und Aserbaidschan, der drastische Schäden verursachte.

Bluetooth is still the best technology we have in a smartphone to implement exposure notifications. It is safe to use the Corona-Warn-App. Fight me! ;)
