ACLU Santa Cruz County and Restore the Fourth Santa Cruz are co-sponsoring “Surveillance City: A Community Forum”. The event will be hosted at the Louden Nelson Community Center on Wednesday, February 12 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The program will include a panel discussion followed by an open question period moderated by Steve Pleich. Guest panelists will include Jay Campbell, Technology Chair for ACLU Santa Cruz, Colin Campbell Clyde, Co-Founder of Restore the Fourth Santa Cruz, local journalist and author of the recent GT Weekly feature article Surveillance City John Malkin and Santa Cruz City Council Member Micah Posner. Some of the questions that the forum hopes to address are:
• Are we as a society adjusting to life in a surveillance state?
• Are we willing to relinquishing bits of our privacy in exchange for the promise of other rewards?
• Do Automatic License Plate Readers have a place in Santa Cruz?
• And perhaps the most Orwellian question of all: Who watches the watchers?
This admission free event will be held in the Center’s Multipurpose Room. Please join ACLU Santa Cruz and Restore the Fourth for this robust community conversation.
