Freedom of expression is facing an unprecedented threat in the UK. The Government is planning ‘online harms’ laws that would make the internet an aggressively monitored, controlled speech zone. Speech that is lawful offline will be regulated online, stifling free expression, harming communities and setting a blueprint for online censorship internationally. Our online public squares need protection.
Police and private companies in the UK have been quietly rolling out facial recognition surveillance cameras, taking ‘faceprints’ of millions of people — often without you knowing about it. The Met Police is planning to roll it out across the capital. This is an enormous expansion of the surveillance state — and it sets a dangerous precedent worldwide. We must stop this dangerously authoritarian surveillance now.
