Take Action Against Surveillance

These activists use makeup to defy mass surveillance - i-D
Activists are using anti-facial recognition make up to prevent the cameras from identifying them.

When people ask their children what they want to be when they grow up, the idea of being a person who fights to maintain the simplest of everyday freedoms isn’t usually the response. Yet here we are. What has our world come to?!?!

At the moment, Indiana is starting their tracking and surveillance plan that is going to cost at least $43 million dollars of our hard earned money every year. Here is an article related to that. https://www.journalgazette.net/news/local/20200430/indiana-to-outsource-tracking

In other news articles of the story (with too many pop up ads and blocks on non-subscribers to be posted here) Indiana’s Dr. Kristina Box said that not responding when you are called by a contact tracer is NOT an option. She gave an example that they will send you a message first, and if you do not reply within 4 hours, they will call you. She didn’t get into what happens if you don’t answer your phone when they call.

You can contact Indiana Governor Holcomb here (although he hasn’t seemed to care all that much about what anyone who doesn’t like his plan has to say) :

That brings us to the other big issue brought to us by Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush as a means of Federal Tracking with HR 6666. This bill will give grant money to companies, agencies, schools, etc…that use the tracking guidelines on employees and students. It is going to cost $100 BILLION of our dollars every year. They plan on doing it for more than one year. What a waste of money that we could use for so many other things or maybe not borrow from China. You can read it from the link below.

H. R. 6666

To authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to award grants to eligible entities to conduct diagnostic testing for COVID–19, and related activities such as contact tracing, through mobile health units and, as necessary, at individuals’ residences, and for other purposes.

It’s very apparent that they want all employers and schools to follow with tracking people, which doesn’t usually stop there, especially with “other purposes”. Purdue is already fighting covid-19 by requiring all staff and students on campus to get a flu vaccine to return this fall. Will this grant money program start requiring all workers and students to get a flu shot in the future?

The bill is sponsored by Democrats who currently control the House of Congress. If they want it passed, there’s not much we can do as they usually all vote together. The best chance to try and stop this is in the Senate. Please click this link to find and contact your U.S. Senator. If you’re receiving this and live in Indiana, then Todd Young and Mike Braun are our two Senators. The link provides an easy way to look up Senators from every state.

Call them and email them to OPPOSE HR 6666.

You can also give it go with contacting your Congressional Representative to let them know you oppose this.

Finally, another group has made a fill in the blank letter to send to OPPOSE HR 6666 if you would like to go that route for contacting.
