PMA on Surveillance, Technology and Communities of Color

Detroit, Michigan (at Allied Media Conference)
June 19, 2014
Points of Unity:
  • The roots of surveillance are in systems of power and oppression, including white supremacy, capitalism, colonialism, sexism, ableism and homophobia.
  • Surveillance by government and corporations is a human rights violation.
  • Communities can collect, maintain and analyze their own data for their own protections.
  • Privacy is a human right and transparency is a government responsibility.
