East London Stands up to Surveillance

FIT and TSG go in for the kill.

A conference, called by the Network for Police Monitoring and FITWatch, will be taking place next month at RichMix. The conference offers a great opportunity for those accross the political and social spectrum to network and find common solutions to the problem of Police surveillance in contemporary society. In Tower Hamlets, we all have first-hand experience of surveillance: the CCTV cameras on every corner, the ‘harassment policing’ overt surveillance operations on Brick Lane or the undercover monitoring of our religious or political communities.

This conference is the place to be for all those looking to build links accross communities and further their understanding of the surveillance state – and what we can do to stop it.

It offers a rare opportunity to hear panel speakers with in-depth knowledge of the subject rooted firmly in their personal experience – and to be able to share your own with others there.

Seats are limited, so make sure you register in advance on the Network for Police Monitoring to guarantee yourself a place on the day. They will also be asking for a £5(low income)/£10(waged) suggested donation to help cover costs. This includes tea, coffee and lunch – cheap at half the price! Not one to be missed.
