Stop surveillance

Comment 9th September 2010

Make it illegal for local government, private and public organizations to fit CCTV on public highways etc. and in areas used by the public e.g. buses and trains, shopping malls etc. unless there is public consultation and agreement. As to local and national government, the public should vote on any plans to watch our lives!!   This is not a Police State!!

Why does this matter?

No government or organization has the right to watch people, particularly without them being aware.  This is the thin edge of a very dangerous wedge.  It smacks of toyalitarianism.

The counter-point that ,if you have nothing to fear why worry, is too complacent.  Our private lives should not be watched on any grounds.  The few criminals gaught on camera will have to be dealt with by some other means
