Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance.

Wherever you go, someone will be logging your movements – whether it is the police or the big supermarket chains that are anxious to monitor the behavior of customers in their stores, but the vital fact to remember is that all private CCTV cameras may be accessed by the authorities and are therefore, in effect, part of the state's surveillance system.

Why is CCTV an infringement of privacy?

There is infringement of privacy if personal freedom and privacy of an individual is limited or affected in any other way.

Observing people using cameras is generally considered as an infringement of privacy because the personal freedom and privacy of an individual is affected.

Unsolicited capturing images of a person is generally considered as an infringement of privacy because the captured images can be used in a manner in which personal freedom or privacy of that person is restricted or affected in another way.

• Whatever happened to the common law value of 'innocent until proven guilty'?
• Research shows that CCTV simply does not work, so isn't it just a huge waste of money?
• Why do the media, police and government portray CCTV as an effective tool?

We believe the public has an absolute right to know when they are interacting with technology that could affect their privacy and liberty.

Don't you?

Let's fight this battle before governments and big corporations track our every move.

Abolish CCTV to protect us
“Against the state, corporations and the malevolence of future governments.”
CCTV profoundly harms your privacy and liberty
