teeniest attempt out your privacy and data to the n.s.a. and any other forgot the spy agency want them a few bucks rather than use snigger this pimp the boys as company software products including skype as a dangerous weapon against the constitutional rights of unsuspecting customers on the products. and gates so himself when he gets caught. welcome to london the world's capital of surveillance even though the year isn't small nine hundred eighty four you may be forgiven for imagining big brother really is watching you i can see why. six fourteen being a ping. pong ball every bit the public ground is warranted all the time of everything the three but also just because all the different companies different
landowners have their own season t.v. cameras are everywhere everybody. in the most monitored city in the world there is one camera for every fourteen people but those this intense surveillance keep london safe i mean it wait the streets like a kind of dangerous because that coveted c.c.t.v. but no one is watching that's what's interesting about these two to be culture if it takes away like the joy for having a mysterious like natural today that will take. the talking for henrietta williams for george going to have maps a ring of steel around london's financial district. forged from automated security gates and surveillance cameras anyone who enters is registered electronically and anything out of the ordinary triggers security protocols. even seemingly innocuous things like video cameras. on the five knots. if you do it in
your ticket with your car you can move on with your here we can film whichever way we want. and what. i want to do with my job at least rely on the private security to jump before that so if i can fall through the malls you know it's full and what's muddled it up with it with love and in fact in most cases the streets along this walk well were given to the developers so that they kurds and the policy of the press rise in the street but also installing the defense and surveillance against terrorist attack i get sort of as you loitering at home presuming. the surveillance systems here aren't just simple kindness. anyone who behaves unexpectedly triggers in the wrong imperceptibly humans can observe and evaluate behavior through the smart cameras
without anyone noticing. if the camera detects an unusual event the subject is marked. in. one of the world's leading scientists behind the developments of smarts cameras is professor james all of kingston university. systems his team of developing can detect suspicious activity even before a crime occurs. the way is to present large volumes of data over many months possibly years and so that enables the system to develop a statistical model of what is normal and maybe what is abnormal and so then there is automatic flagging of anything that is considered abnormal. in locations where thousands of people passed in front of the. cameras every day it's even more
difficult for the systems to determine what is normal behavior and what isn't. people simply on their way to work what does this group hide a terrorist. anyone suspected of crime in the u.k. quickly loses their right to privacy. the face what units of the london police presents faces of suspects to the public using footage from security cameras posted on the internet. this is a gentleman of interest. and as jim says appears. throws problem there so it goes on a public website and. i were to care to cite a real throw. for the empress of america. and the images going into the system can be viewed by the public on the face or saw it on the face which.
make neville is head of image recognition it's scotland yard if you use this kind of crowd sourced policing via the internet represents a powerful new weapon in the fight against crime. so i was a paper of register for the day and i tell you not only in the united kingdom people are very much they quite accept the c.c.t.v. and the police to a good job with the c.c.t.v. and while they're happy to identify criminals there's not so much of fear surveillance. that was possible on mainland europe. over the past decade the u.k. has been constantly seeking new ways to combat the perceived threat of terrorism. at this military base two hours outside of london the newest techniques are getting put through that paces. mark lawrence is one of the new breed of experts offering instruction in the east of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones.
no official government sources will publicly talk about the effectiveness of this new technique only mark lawrence will speak with us. so one planning to do now is hopefully track patrick that either on his way there or is way back if i don't see him in a few odds i will fly to the horse track see if we can pick him back. the hunt takes place across three miles. ok so we've got patrick we've located in use in the trunk so we're going to fly towards and. big brother approaches unnoticed from the air. when the target is discovered the wavy becomes a constant companion it's a height of one hundred twenty meters. and what we're doing is using a g.p.s. lock to do this sort of i double click here we can just keep the subject in the center string and screen and also at the same time the unit will follow him back
with service fly this way. when you go. to work yeah we got you for you in the hudson coming out as well. so that's why it's good for covert surveillance. would be possible that we in the future see drones flying over our heads maybe not directly overhead but definitely the police are using these now they're using them for surveillance work and not just sneaking around spying on people as a lot of people seem to think so sometimes to catch the bad things going on you need to be a bit i could call a slight but just secretive about it. there are plans to fit the drones with improved cameras incorporating face recognition technology. quietly public privacy is being exchanged for greater security. michael chandler is the head of vanquish security back in london he's also a key demonstrates. these techniques. some of which are largely effective.
like this how did you get that well basically what we've done was we remotely sourced in the mark from your phone i recorded a pre-determined time and that recording then uploaded to our online platform where it really. defines bugged whilst it was left unattended on a table during an interview with the police. professor who was also monitored. ok so here's the photograph taken in the play station i believe there's that one and there's this one. here the coast so obviously there were phone calls ok text messages which has been only one of an overview of your location which is because it's only the location for this afternoon but in general
it's also called the photographs that have been taken and also the all the voice recordings that we have made so you just can't see everything without my knowledge actually basically. ok it works not only that. there is absolutely no way for you to be able to find a device on your phone is totally hidden only we could only we would be able to find it ok so this is the photograph that we found in your phone courier i don't know what they are but what i can do is have a look at the times they were taken and they cross or cross or upset with one of the recorders we have also the location. we can show you that you were. a play station on seymour street that goes through g.p.s. this is a g.p.s. report coming from your device and that's all legal this is totally legal. absolutely legal yes well i think. is this
demonstration has revealed it's becoming easier to covertly track individuals using modern technology. and it's happening far more often than we realize. according to x. n.s.a. analyst william binney american security agencies now have the technology. for their story at all they're collecting it all in storage for the large storage facility that's what that's all about and the point is that they hope by storing it all now that sometime in the future they'll figure out how to go back into it and figure out what's important so they can retroactively analyze it that's why they need five zeta bytes of stories that you talk to store it all. it's for the u.s. government the two years he was responsible for electronic espionage
a decade ago when you began to bug u.s. citizens who left the saudis to fight against terrorism seemed to change the rules of engagement. i mean there are virtually is nothing in the network that they can't have a copy of if they start targeting youth so so so what they already have your data i can't find out what they're doing with my data. but i know they have it ok. so i make sure i write in there whatever i whatever i had to say about them i say that in there so that when they collect that they know what i'm thinking of them. with specially developed software. happens while computers without says realizing. this is a promotional video from the money factor of. a surveillance program designed for the police. it is widely used across western europe and the principle
well i think one of the turning points was the. heard about nine hundred fifty three. had been given orders much destruction. children killed. this policy smashing. the palestinians and the arabs and hitting them ten times harder than. it looks like. here. peace process which of course sharon was against from the very beginning he wanted to create small pockets.
because from around the world meeting on the theme of this year's meeting he states of a. keynote speaker take about the obama knows what it means to be prosecuted he's a close friend and supporter of julian assange. to be free from suspicion is one of the first freedoms that is important for being free in the rest of your life when you are followed around when you are being investigated because of the whim of someone this is the beginning of the end of your freedom does the n.s.a.
routinely intercept american citizens e-mails you know those the n.s.a. intercept americans cell phone conversations no google searches now text messages no i'm a son dot com orders no bank records no. but there was general alexander most powerful person in the world probably even more powerful than the president of the united states or any it leader of any other country. first of all because we know for a fact. we know for a fact from our client that the n.s.a. was in fact doing dragnet surveillance of all of those things well i mean i don't really use a mobile phone for anything except security. so i don't really use a mobile phone i choose not to use facebook because i really think it's. just
there's systems that make tradeoffs that are not democratically decided. the capital of reykjavik is the perfect location from which to investigate the technologies states can use to track their citizens you know when you have it was from. this infamous video and from the right. those involved with the release of the video suddenly found themselves facing up to a powerful opponent. jones to to. the media and to wiki leaks send photos from the video to the international press. this activity transformed into a national security targets and to right to did you to prove the sea was repaired even though there were no legal proceedings against.
my person. within three days without my knowledge which means. the least we do have very bad for the united states to go into people you know even parliamentarians. countries to. matters. most remarkable about this story is that boogie to john's. that it is a member of the icelandic parliament. furthermore twitter was not the only source of private digital information to hand data over to the us security agencies. michael enough what experts say in this field in the states for example they speculate it is face perhaps skype or ideals no five but the judge says refuses to god acknowledge the requests from the barriers to unseal its companies
it is. jones that it did nothing illegal when she released the video but it was enough to warrant invasive snooping from the u.s. security agencies. me. and my younger son older son. some people that i've got to know later i used to work with. three years ago the icelandic people took to the streets the banking crisis had hit the small island nation heart the icelandic source been revolution ultimately forced the general election. to johns that was elected to the new parliament but for the us government she remained a target. again you only today jones to take campaigns but it's to rights and self-determination she wants iceland to become
a safe haven for sensitive data. they want to put a stop to the prying eyes of the state. we actually want less around the world cherry pick the best. e-mails for example could be protected in the same way as written correspondence. there is absolutely no country in the world that actually properly addressed the fact how easily it is for governments and corporations to mine through our private data we in iceland are focusing on creating a standard and setting an example and then it would be really ideal and this is one of the thoughts behind the spending want to meet initiative. be ideal if we can you know with these new set of laws create a haven in such a way that you know i would like to see it spread to other countries. the police
can shut down illegal sites as was the case with this raid on the submarine for online file sharing site the pirate bank. the problem is with the legal information from other providers that may be lost in the process. to protect the states from any access it needs to be in an unreachable place in the future that place could be in iceland the idea of iceland is an inverse tax haven. of say a place of protection because by the simplest information. free speech rights protecting people against the touch. is a very nice woman. stephanie something with. which it will take time so you know. it flew for a long time everything should be a church bit. but the gates of jones does here who continue to use facebook twitter and google claiming she's
a guinea pig in the monitored space. she says whoever spied on her feels they can do it with impunity and that's her case should be a warning. and it is a temptation to go into somebody's home without them ever being able to know about it and then i'm referring to my online home for it is just as sacred as my offline home this is where all my private stuff is this is where all my personal letters are this is where all my thoughts and all mark to beauty of movement can be traced so you know hands off my home. a similar case of monitoring is currently on revelling in berlin. under a home is a noted sociologist who was teaching at the home most university. for months he was shadowed and monitored. suspected is the leader of
a militant group they committed arson attacks in berlin in two thousand and seven. that's far them off the island i still only a small sum of what was the morning of the thirty first of july so some a day in the morning before seven in the summer and work up to a pounding on the front door and then a mass of armed men fell on me with thick they then three me to the ground as my hands fixed behind my back that's a twelve dollars offer you don't get the impression that you're in a film. because they behave as in one of the thrillers all action movies. give us a callous or so i was already aware that there is such a thing as house searches and arrests as if that's directed also against left wing activists the still listed as a that was already going through my head but i could not understand what they
actually had to do with me directly so it was an abstract fair designed at that point. under a home was arrested by special detachment and brought to federal court in cannes wrote. only later did home learn that he had been systematically monitored. up to federal investigators but been studying his academic as ace in the widespread use of expressions such as gentrification and casualisation had inflamed their suspicions these were terms also used by the militant group that had claimed responsibility for the berlin arson attacks. the investigating authorities had created a character great to use in the investigation which suggested suspects should have extraordinary political and historical knowledge and the scientific and analytical
ability to execute the attacks. following his arrest the investigating judge ordered holmes detention. after thirty days in solitary confinement the federal court ruled that there was no strong suspicion. for the first time since his arrest home is free and for the first time he learns about the surveillance protocols surrounding him the excerpts from the minutes reveal a detailed investigation into all aspects of holmes life. investigators monitored home social environment in couldn't find any evidence to incriminate him. but this only caused them to intensify their surveillance. according to their logic home is an intellectual who is highly conspiratorial and expertly concealing his misdeeds. that they may be on the tail of an innocent person didn't seem to occur to his boss u.s.
. consulate you have what you that's what if he were completely monitored our personal e-mails have been right that they have basically found ways even before the online search to gain access to our computers. or the stock of there is also a sense of political outrage in the country. over the loss of freedom to choose what the main ingredients of domestic social values should be. elementary because those personal freedoms are trampled in the course of these kinds of investigations and it's over fundraising and it'll last eight also just because it's. finally anyone who now search is under a home on the internet we receive a huge number of results in many articles linking him to terrorism. for the rest of his life and ray home will be tainted by the phrase terrorist suspects.
people are more conscious of the need to protect their digital privacy than ever before the cool for digital self defense is heard everywhere. emails are sent encrypted but many are choosing to do without social networks like facebook and twitter. in vienna this group meet once a week for a cypher party they discuss how to make themselves invisible in the network. whether the theory taught is the goal of the dough when the people it's operating on a anonymity that is from web browsing chats or other internet services to make it anonymous most of the credit. until now encryption techniques have only been in the domain of the authorities and the late internet geeks these people want to spread the word.
of. the potter something the cipher parties have formed spontaneously all over the planet the interest of the population has risen in the course of more government control and more profiling by large companies such as google facebook and others and the interpretation and openness of this profound data is a major problem and a major threat. is a basic human right. back with the internet back with big brother so maybe it's a good idea just like we understood with. it is we have a personal responsibility to not infect our friends and lovers and neighbors and when you use the internet without any without anonymity without privacy what you do is you. and probably even to your country certainly.
with. a still in oregon is still being nike for one hundred million dollars claiming that the company failed to include a warning on its air jordan stickers that they could be used as dangerous weapons after he used his own pair to beat a man. and other pimp this from the pacific northwest the bill gates continues to
pimp out your privacy and data to the n.s.a. and many other forgot the spy agency want to give a few bucks but rather the news a sneaker this pimp the boys his company software products including skype as a dangerous weapon against the constitutional rights of unsuspecting customers on the pimps products. gates so himself when he gets caught. millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a lifetime food supply no charge. they can the very strong push against g.m.o. and we think that. you can be more the prey products are priest to. there is no. evidence to this any problem with genetic engineering
when you make a deal. or is free cheese always in a mouse trap i don't believe that the. poor and the free. enterprise is profit. for social justice golden rice on our t.v. . dramas that can't be ignored. stories of the risk refuse to. say since changing the world lights now. to make sure the days you know. for grabs didn't. look good.
coming up on r t a warning about some graphic photos released today by the web site t m z they show what looks like u.s. marines burning the bodies of the rocky insurgents more on this just ahead. taking on the n.s.a. a new jersey congressman rush holt has called for major changes to u.s. surveillance will join us to talk about the reforms he thinks are needed in just a few minutes and although many west virginian residents haven't had their permission for their water to be turned out many of them are still leery eighteen lawsuits have surfaced against the company responsible for the leak more on that later in the show.
