September 15: Oakland Privacy Working Group Meeting

WHEN: September 15, 2016 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
WHERE: Omni Commons
4799 Shattuck Ave
Oakland, CA 94609

  • Join the Oakland Privacy Working Group to organize against the surveillance state,  against Urban Shield, and to advocate for privacy and surveillance regulation ordinances to be passed around the Bay Area, including the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, the BART Board of Directors, and by the Oakland and Berkeley City Councils.
  • We are also engaged in the fight against Predictive Policing and other “pre-crime” and “thought-crime” abominations, drones, improper use of police body cameras, ALPRs, requirements for “backdoors” to your cellphone and against other invasions of privacy by our benighted City, County, State and Federal Governments.
  • OPWG originally came together to fight against the Domain Awareness Center (DAC), Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub. OPWG was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network; its members helped draft the Privacy Policy that puts further restrictions on the now Port-restricted DAC, and made Oakland’s new Privacy Advisory Commission to the City Council happen.  We were also the lead in having Alameda County pass the most comprehensive privacy and usage policy in the country for deployment of “Stingray” technology (cell phone interceptors).We have presented our work at the recent RightsCon in San Francisco and at Left Forum and HOPE in New York City.If you would like to attend our meeting would like a quick introduction to what we’re doing before we dive right into the thick of things, send email to  contact@oaklandprivacy.org and one of us will show up twenty minutes early to give you some background on our work.

    Stop by and learn how you can help guard our right not to be spied on by the government.
