Cameras to “track Muslims’ every move” June 6, 2010

Filed under: human rights — Jender @ 7:28 pm

Counterterrorism police have targeted hundreds of surveillance cameras on two Muslim areas of Birmingham, enabling them to track the precise movements of people entering and leaving the neighbourhoods….

Police sources said the initiative, code-named Project Champion, is the first of its kind in the UK that seeks to monitor a population seen as “at risk” of extremism…

When the cameras become operative, residents will not be able to drive into or leave the two neighbourhoods without their movements being tracked.

    A program monitoring “a population seen at risk of extremism” codenamed Project Champion.

    Unfortunately, the monitoring is done by a population at risk of extreme racism.
