@Deivedux @DuckDuckGo @EFF Thanks so much for promoting our 'Free to Protest' guides DuckDuckGo! And Deividas, you are right. Privacy International produced these guides, not EFF!

Facial recognition already stands against fundamental rights and values, but that isn’t stopping people from using it - it’s time the EU made the law clear and banned biometric mass surveillance

ICYMI: Yesterday, we launched our protest surveillance tracker. We're keeping tabs on surveillance technologies being deployed against protestors around the world. Take a look! 👇

Our partners, @UnwantedWitness, posing the question: what is the Ugandan government, @Worldbank, @IMFNews going to do to make sure that the most vulnerable aren’t excluded from Covid relief efforts because they don’t have a national ID?

africanarguments.org/2021/07/t

In Uganda, Covid relief funds are to be sent to people’s phones. But you need an ID to get a SIM card, and millions don’t have one. Mandatory sim card registration risks the lives of the most vulnerable hit by Covid.

Facial recognition poses important threats to privacy and yet, it’s already being publicly deployed for surveillance purposes.

Join us and ask the EU to ban facial recognition: pvcy.org/banbiometrics

Intrusive surveillance technology is increasingly used during protests around the world and has a chilling effect on freedom of assembly. We think it’s essential to monitor the use of such technologies, so we have created a protest surveillance tracker!
pvcy.org/protestsurv

You can take a look at our Free to Protest guide (UK) to learn more about the technologies in use and how to reduce your exposure when attending a protest. pvcy.org/freetoprotest

We want individuals engaging in protests to know what is being deployed so they can take mitigating steps to uphold their rights to privacy, freedom of assembly, and freedom of expression and to hold authorities into account.

We will continue to monitor protests in the coming months and will update the tracker with new techologies. If you wish to share articles with us about protest surveillance, email hello@privacyinternational.org with the subject line ‘Protest Surveillance’.

From PI’s partner, @UnwantedWitness: the ‘fatal flaw’ in Uganda’s Covid relief effort is requiring the use of the national ID, which excludes millions of the most vulnerable.

Digital health initiatives should be accompanied by robust data protection safeguards. But that’s not always the case.
