Home Office (HO) has decided to put GPS tags on refugees who were set for #RwandaDeportation and also on those arriving on boats. Here is my interview in @Independent very clearly highlighting as to why electronic tagging must not be used:…
A thread (1/10)
(2/10) Tagging is highly intrusive & experienced as punishment. And it is indeed a punishment in the criminal justice context. On top, HO is going to combine it with 'curfew orders' and 'exclusion zones'. So people will be confined and will not be able to enter/leave a location.
(3/10) Also, HO is not clear as to for how long people will remain on tag. Failure to comply with tag+restrictions is a criminal offence! In 2016, The Court of Appeal said HO had no power to impose a curfew under EM powers or general powers under Immigration Act 1971

1/ Worldwide, a #poultry-origin disease is causing high mortality in wild birds. The disease is called highly pathogenic avian #influenza (#HPAI). It is important to record the scale of wild bird mortality in order to help prevent such disasters in the future. Here is a thread.
2/ In general, HPAI viruses emerge in intensive poultry production systems by mutation from relatively innocent viruses (aptly called ‘low pathogenic avian influenza viruses). Of 39 known HPAI mutation events detected, 37 are from such poultry farms.
3/ The cause of the current wild bird mortality is the descendant of a HPAI virus that emerged in a commercial farm of domestic geese in Guangdong, China, in 1996. The virus spread widely across poultry farms in Asia, and then spilled over into wild waterbirds.

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

NEW: You've never heard of them, yet there’s a good chance that "A6" knows an immense amount about you.

The company is one of many that purchases vast reams of location data, tracking hundreds of millions of people around the world by exploiting a poorly understood fact:
Countless common smartphone apps are constantly harvesting your location and relaying it to advertisers, typically without your knowledge or informed consent, relying on disclosures buried in the legalese of the sprawling ToS that the companies involved count on you never reading
Once your location is beamed to an advertiser, there is currently no law in the US prohibiting the further sale and resale of that information to firms like Anomaly Six, which are free to sell it to their private sector and governmental clientele

🗓️ vanaf morgen, 11 april 2022, vervalt het algemene advies om voor een #coronatest naar de #GGD te gaan

voor de meeste mensen is een #zelftest voldoende voor testen bij mogelijke COVID19 symptomen

het "zicht op het virus" vervalt daarmee deels

wat blijft:
-Testen bij klachten
-#Isolatie na positieve #COVID19 test
-#Quarantaine na nauw contact (tenzij vaccinatie en aantal andere regels)

#isolatie mag na 5 dagen opgeheven worden, mits 24 uur klachtenvrij, en tot dag 10 voorzichtig zijn 😷


wat verandert:
- wie er nog wél bij de GGD mogen komen testen
- ons #ZichtOpHetVirus 🔎📊

The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, 2022, prima facie, fails to satisfy the tests laid down by the Supreme Court in the landmark decision in K.S. Puttaswamy (2017).
#CriminalProcedureIdentificationBill2022 #LokSabha #surveillance #privacymatters
The collection and processing of sensitive personal data such as biometric & biological samples for the purposes of identification do not, satisfy the test of proportionality.
The absence of any opportunity of hearing for persons refusing to allow their measurements to be taken highlights the failure to meet the State’s aim for promoting justice, as provided under Article 39A of the Constitution.

"Smartphones" trump food. #DigitalID

Nov 1 2021, #CBDC India: "so every single person today, even if he's not able to afford all the 3 meals, is having a #Smartphone in his hand. And I must thank some of the Asian countries which actually revolutionize[d] the smartphone market"
"so these three: the #biometric identity, the no-frills savings account [], & of course the #smartphone, & the fact that data is so cheap in India was the one which actually set the ground... I think #Canada & India started on this journey of instant payments almost together..."

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."…
"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

Google filed an amicus brief contending that the geofence was clearly a search which violated the 4th Amendment. Interesting record for appeal. 2/8

For readers in India, a critical story breaking from @tomer_ganon of the @calcalist in Israel. Turns our #Pegasus was also used by Israeli Police to target not only activists and journalists, but also CEOs and politicians. #thread #surveillance
Here is an English report published in the @haaretzcom that details the @calcalist story for readers in India. Some of the names on the list will stun you.…
According to the Israeli media report, even the son of former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu became an unwilling target as his phone was infected. The phone was occasionally being used by the PM's wife. Imagine the level of security breach.
