Reference: The DAC FAQ


Also, sign the on line petition to stop the DAC.

For more than eight months we have read a continuous stream of relevations about how the US Government, through the NSA, has been spying on We the People, putting trap doors into all our electronic devices, and associating us all with terrorists by way of our social media friends' friends' friends.

What have Oakland's politicians done in light of all these revelations about abuses and direct violations of the 1st and 4th amendments by our government? Have any City Officials said "Not in Oakland!" ??

No. They've gone and approved monies to contract out to build an Orwellian-named "Domain Awareness Center (DAC)" right smack in the middle of Oaktown. This DAC will gather information about everyone in Oakland in real time (using license plate readers, facial and body recognition software, Shotspotter microphones and more). It will be capable of collating who you are, where you are, what you are doing on social media, and what you are spending money on. In conjunction with other "Fusion Centers" built by the NSA, state and local governments around the country, it will track everyone and everything in Oakland from kids in school to politicians visiting their lovers.

§Stop the DAC! Party at Oscar Grant Plaza
by Oakland Privacy
Oscar Grant Plaza and Oakland City Council Chambers. 14th St and Broadway, Oakland

Feast! Music! Rally! DJ's! Speakers! Art! ...More! Come on out to Oscar Grant Plaza and City Council Chambers to STOP THE DOMAIN AWARENESS CENTER (DAC) before it get's built! Oakland City Council keeps putting DAC last on their agenda, literally voting in the middle of the night when the meeting is packed at the start with people trying to speak on DAC. It's like a filibuster, and it's a scandal, but this time we're throwing a raging party outside the meeting, and it's going to be a great time. We kick off about 6, and we can stay late. We'll pack the City Council meeting, whenever DAC gets called, and everyone is encouraged to speak and participate in the public process. The Domain Awareness Center is a proposed massive police surveillance center for the city of Oakland to be financed by the Dept of Homeland Security. We can stop it on Feb 4, if City Council has a backbone...
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
