"Public Safety and Private Lives"
League of Women Voters of Oakland to hold discussion about Oakland surveillance.
"How does a city like Oakland respond to residents' demands for more effective crime prevention and reduction while protecting everyone's civil liberties? How will the Domain Awareness Center impact Oakland? How much surveillance is enough -- or too much -- to enhance our law enforcement capabilities? Bring your ideas and a friend to discuss these important issues with knowledgeable resource people and fellow Oaklanders."
This was not posted by the League of Women Voters of Oakland but reposted in the hope to get more residents of Oakland interested in the many ways the City of Oakland is taking away the citizen's rights without their input and most definitely without their vote. It's one thing for the council to vote to approve sewer repair contracts or modify city budgets, it's another to take away rights guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
