Add comment on:Oakland Council Votes for Port-Only DAC, March 5, 2014: Full Video & City Resolution
For the history books, here's the full 5-hour video of the Oakland City Council discussion on Phase II development of the Domain Awareness Center from March 4, 2014. One hundred and forty-nine public speaker's cards were turned in prior to the meeting. Public comment was unanimous against a city-wide DAC. Council members, after having revealed on February 18 an interest in reigning in the expansive surveillance system that city staffers have pushed, followed through by passing a resolution at about 1am on March 5 to proceed with a scaled-down Port-only version of the DAC. The final vote was 4 Ayes — Brooks, Kalb, Reid, Kernighan — and 4 Noes — Gallo, Gibson McElhaney, Kaplan, Schaaf. Mayor Quan's Aye vote broke the tie. (Text of the passed Port-only DAC resolution is below.)
