Main Topic Out And About Privacy Surveillance

Saturday: Fight back against government surveillance!

Tonight at 9pm Eastern is our member meeting. To participate, go to this link and follow the instructions.

This year is the 22nd anniversary of the signing of the PATRIOT Act made possible by the 9/11 attacks. Since then, government and corporate surveillance continues to expand. We will join Pirates nationwide to push back on the effort to surveil our public spaces by mapping the surveillance cameras in East Boston. Join us!

At noon on September 16th, we will meet at the East Boston Public Library at 365 Bremen Street, East Boston. It is an eight minute walk from the Airport MBTA Blue Line stop. The library has a link you can use to get directions there.

We will then divide up into teams and fan out to map cameras. We encourage everyone to wear a mask and social distance. We posted instructions for how to use several camera mapping apps on your phone so you can get ready. Check out what we have mapped so far at!

Register now so we know you are coming!

If it rains too hard, we will reschedule to next Saturday, the 23rd.

On Sunday, we will be in Acton for a relaxing afternoon talking, eating and, weather permitting, swimming in a pool. Register separately. It is potluck, so if you want to bring something, add to our etherpad.
