The success of San Francisco’s #FacialRecognition ban is owed to a vast grassroots coalition that has advocated for similar policies around the Bay Area for years. Thanks to @ACLU_NorCal @SecureJustice @CAIRSFBA @ColorOfChange @mediajustice and so many others who fought for this.

Big Brother Britain: Extraordinary moment police FINE pedestrian £90 for disorderly behaviour after he tries to cover his face from facial recognition camera on the streets of London

Officers set up the camera on a van in Romford, East London, which then cross-checked photos of faces of passers-by against a database of wanted criminals.

But one man was unimpressed about being filmed and covered his face with his hat and jacket, before being stopped by officers who took his picture anyway.

After being pulled aside, the man told police: ‚If I want to cover me face, I’ll cover me face. Don’t push me over when I’m walking down the street.‘

Gorilla selfie park ranger explains how he got incredible picture

Mathieu said: ‘In terms of behaviour, they like to mimic everything that is happening (around them), everything we do.’

He said the caretakers at Senkwekwe Mountain Gorilla Orphanage Centre try to give the animals as much access as possible to their natural environment, but they inevitably exhibit ‘almost the same behaviour as humans.’

‚Social Credit‘ Tech Is Coming: 5 Ways for U.S. Entrepreneurs to Capitalize

(12.10.2018)

This may all sound frightening, but a system devised by human beings to control others can also be controlled, if you know what you’re doing. If you’re a true entrepreneur, then you see the opportunity in every social evolution. And big changes mean even bigger opportunities. Are you ready?

China has turned Xinjiang into a zone of repression — and a frightening window into the future

(23.2.2019) When George Orwell’s “1984” was published seven decades ago, it seemed a dire warning of a future dystopia ruled by thought police and authoritarian control. Today, such a world is becoming a reality in Xinjiang. We agree with human rights groups who have urged the United Nations Human Rights Council, when it meets starting Monday, to launch an international fact-finding mission to Xinjiang to expose this unsettling experiment in state control of human behavior.

Israeli Arab Leader Suspended From Knesset Debates for Insulting Police Officers

(3.7.2018) The incident in questioned occurred after a protest in Haifa against the killing of Palestinians along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel. Odeh had gone to the Bnei Zion (Rothschild) Medical Center in Haifa to visit human rights activist Jafar Farah, who claims that an Israel Police officer had cursed and beaten him during the demonstration. When the police tried to prevent the MK from entering the hospital, Odeh responded by yelling insults at them, telling them, “Who are you at all? Go to hell!“ And, he added, “You are nothing!”

Ethics Committee members decided that with such behavior, Odeh had violated the directive whereby MKs must act in a way that is appropriate to their status as representatives of the public.

Dangerous Immunity

The uncompromising backing that Donald Trump gives Israel has liquidated the international community’s power to use diplomacy to restrain Israel’s behavior.

Under the auspices of an American president who recycles Israeli propaganda in his speeches and gives the Israelis carrots and the Palestinians sticks, Israel treats the international responses to the bloodbath in Gaza with contempt.
