Thu Mar 6 2014 (Updated 03/07/14)Camover Actions on Stoplight Cameras in Oakland After Council Approves Continuation of DAC
At some point late in the night after the Oakland City Council voted to continue with the Domain Awareness Center on March 5 — albeit a significantly scaled-down Port-only version of the surveillance center — a group calling themselves the Technophobic Women's Action Team (or T.W.A.T.) staged camover actions against stoplight cameras at two intersections in West Oakland. In December, T.W.A.T. targeted a portable private security company surveillance trailer on 36th and Adeline Streets in West Oakland, and now have hit one traffic camera at the intersection of 36th and Market Streets and two more at the intersection of Northgate Avenue and 27th Street.
Technophobic Women's Action Team writes: When we see the site of the new Domain Awareness Center — a public-sponsored, privately run entity that aims to integrate all surveillance footage in Oakland — we see the machinery of gentrification. Gentrification is not an accident that happens because single moms, queers, and punks rent where they can afford. It is a deliberate process engineered by business interests and city policies. DAC and the gentrification process are both based on control of public space that threatens to destroy the beautiful, vital, and often messy Oakland that we know and love. The first targets and the other squeezes out people of color, the poor, the marginalized, and the subversive.
