tv Documentary RT January 16, 2014 9:29am-10:01am EST
big brother really is watching i can see why. six fourteen fifteen eighteen hours on the ball every bit of public all the time of everything the three but also just because all the different companies and different owners have their own c.c.t.v. cameras everything is what everybody. in the most monitored city in the world there is one camera for every fourteen people but does this intensive. safe i mean in a way the street like a kind of dangerous because that coveted c.c.t.v. but no one's watching that's what's interesting about these two t.v. culture it takes away like the joy of having initiatives like natural today that will take. photographer henrietta williams for george. to ring of steel around london's financial district.
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 flight not the things you can get with your car you can move them with your here you can we can film whichever way we want. and what. i'm going to do with my you know the police can rely on the private security to jump before that. moment so you know let's pull it out of the city and in fact in most cases the streets along this given to the developers so that they could and that the policy all of the press tries in the street but also installing the defense and surveillance against terrorist attack i get sort of edgy loitering and don't think.
surveillance systems here aren't just simple cameras. anyone who behaves unexpectedly triggers an alarm intercept agree humans can observe and evaluate behavior through the smart cameras without anyone noticing. if the camera detects an unusual event the subject is marked. one of the world's leading scientists behind the developments of smart's cameras is professor james or one 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 an automatic flagging of anything that is considered abnormal. in locations where thousands of people pass 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. are these people simply on their way to work or 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 there zimmer's us appears or. throws bottom there so it goes on a public website and so the. we took care to cite
a real throws of. the empress of america. and the images now going into the system can be viewed by the public on the face of warsaw on the face which might. make neville is head of image recognition it's scotland yard if you choose this kind of crowd sourced policing via the internet represents a powerful new weapon in the fight against crime. yes i was a paper of register for they they are and i tell you not only in the united kingdom people are very much that they quite accepts the c.c.t.v. and the police to a good job with the c.c.t.v. and they while they're happy to identify criminals as not so much of fear surveillance at all think in the united kingdom as possible and 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 news techniques are getting
put through that base its. 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 who publicly talk about the effectiveness of this new technique only mark lawrence who speak with us. so one planning to do now is hopefully track patrick than either on his way there or is way back if i don't see him in a few yards i will fly to the horse track see if we can pick him back. the hunt takes place across three mines. ok so we've got patrick we've located and he's in the trunk so we're going to fly towards and. big brother approaches unnoticed from the air. when the target is discovered become
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 so if i double click here we can just keep the subject in the center street and screen and also at the same time the unit will follow him backwards so this 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 it sly 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 keen to demonstrate some of his techniques. some of which are alarmingly effective. like this oh did you get that right well basically what we done was we remotely source a lot for your file i recorded a pre-determined time and that recording then uploaded to our platform where it really yeah the phone was bugged whilst it was left unattended on a table during an interview with the police. professor or well was also monitored. here's the photograph taken in the play station i believe. there's that one and
there's this one. here the course so obviously there were phone calls ok text messages which has been the only one we have an overview of your location which is because it's only the location for this afternoon but in general it's also all 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 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 currently 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 convert we track individuals using modern technology. and it's happening far more often than we realize. according to ex n.s.a. analyst william binney american security agencies now have the technology. for their story at all they're collecting it all and storing so the large storage facility that's what that's all about and the point is that they hope by story at 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 tough to store it all.
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 they're 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. without since 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 is always the same. your thirty's infect the victims computer with known when they hide in a fake software update. the unsuspecting music clicks. and the police can now observe everything as it happens on screen. the intruder gets passwords emails and can see stored data.
on june sixteenth one thousand forty one we had a graduation party at school and the war broke out. was. the shops were always full of goods. but in september leningrad was blocked. one day mom went and saw that all the shelves were empty. in november they bombed the day of steel warehouses with us it was the main storage place for all the food in the city people eating the earth because it had small traces of sugar in it i tried to eat it as well but i couldn't. do it the third night it was incredibly heavy bombing. it was a direct hit on that very shelter and everyone was buried underneath and. all of
i. secretly laboratory kirby was able to build the most sophisticated robot which all unfortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tim's mission is to teach creation and life should care about humans in the world this is why you should care watch only on the dot com. because from around the world meeting on the theme of this year's meeting he states abatements 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 no. there's the n.s.a. intercept americans cell phone conversations no google searches now text messages now i'm a sun dot com orders no bank records no. there was general alexander some most powerful person in the world probably even more powerful than the president of the united states or any at 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. so i don't really use a mobile phone i choose not to use facebook because i really think it's. just your 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 a right to did you to prove a c. was repealed even though there were no legal proceedings against. my person. within three days without my knowledge we. do have very. united states to go into people you know even parliamentarians. countries. to. matters. most remarkable about this story is that the key 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 dates are over to the us security agencies. michael have not what experts say in this field in the states for example they
speculate it is face perhaps skype or you know no five but the judge says refuses to god acknowledge the request from her years to unseal its companies it is . jones the tate did nothing illegal when she released the video but it was enough to warrant invasive snooping from the us 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 and hit the small island nation heart of the icelandic saucepan 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 had everyone on last round 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 this is 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 these data from any access it needs to be in an unreachable place in the future that place could be in iceland the idea of iceland as number start saving. lives say a place of protection because by the simplest information. the speech protecting people against the touch of it is a very nice woman. stukely 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 how the 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 matty and 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 is 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. as far as 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 and work up to a pounding on the front door and then a mass of armed men fell on me with thick laden three me to the ground tired as my hands fixed behind my back that's at what's on as off 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 all 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 at home so it was an abstract fair designed at that point. a home was arrested by special detachment and brought to federal court in cannes row. only later did home learn that he had been systematically monitored. up to federal investigators that 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 it 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 homes life. you know investigators monitored home social environments 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 a clue what you that's what they 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 over fundraising and little passage also of course because it's going to.
finally anyone who now search is underway 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 call 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 well there's a thought is the goal of that though 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 current up. until now encryption techniques have only been in the domain of the authorities and the elite internet geeks these people want to spread the word. got the proper sums of psychopaths is a form 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. when you bareback with the internet your bare back with big brother so maybe it's a good idea just like we understood with. we have a personal responsibility in fact our friends and lovers and neighbors and when you
you know the playing. field in big spirit travels with the flame from its birthplace in greece. joining james brown for an elemental and epic journey around russia and beyond. where i was to go. play. previously peacekeepers for a president who are concerned with monitoring peace deals in a post conflict environment nowadays there are increasingly asked to operate in a high risk of violence while believe violence is still illegal all lead to still.
