DO WE HAVE ANY REAL RIGHTS TO PRIVACY…???

Legal Considerations
Senator Vanstone (2000) in a press release in July 2000 about the use of surveillance cameras at
docks to prevent the importation of illicit drugs, points out, “I want to stress that cameras by
themselves are not a magic solution and in many cases provide only indications of possible illegal
activity. Images on tape are generally effective as evidence only if used in conjunction with other
intelligence or detective work”. Indeed, “the use of CCTV images as evidence for court cases is
open to question despite security industry assertions that such images are straightforward portrayals
of ‘truth’ and a number of wrongful convictions are said to have been obtained through the use of
such evidence ” (Dee 2000). Courts in the USA states of Hawaii and Indiana have ruled
inadmissible videotape evidence obtained without a warrant (ACLU News 1999).
At present there is no privacy legislation in place offering adequate and proper protection from
CCTV and thus there is little real protection from the exploitation and misuse of surveillance
material. (Dee 2000 & Davies 1997). Evidence of such misuse can be taken from the experience of
Bradford, UK, where the local council has had to make its CCTV footage freely available to the
public. Ostensibly to be used by members of the public to clear their own names should the need
arise, actual footage has been used by a British comedian in his Channel 4 TV show in January
2001. In addition the comedian has set up a competition for the “most creative short film” obtained
by the public from CCTV cameras using the new British Data Protection Act which became law in
March 2000 (KDIS Online 2001). ref : http://www.aic.gov.au/media_library/conferences/regional/isnard1.pdf

 

 There are many questions we should address, in reference to the increasing numbers of cameras watching us from the linked up CCTV systems, satellites and drone/ helicopter surveillance of regular ordinary, everyday honest people…the 99%. How far will the police state orchestrated by the obscenely rich elites go….???? That is up to us, the everyday ordinary people to realise we the people DO NOT consent.  We have all the power in unity….let us put the unity, back into our community……………………PEACE 4 ALL
