1984 Action Day, 8th June
8th June is the anniversary of the publication of George Orwell's novel '1984'. The date is marked anually by actions against surveillance, by groups from around the world. But you don't need to be part of an organised group to take part, just do something yourself - be creative!
To get involved contact No CCTV at email@example.com
When will you fight back?
For details of some previouse events visit the the 1984 Action Day site
1. Write to your MP/councillor

2. Attend local council meetings
Most decisions to install surveillance cameras are made at a local level. When no-one objects politicians take the silence to be "implied consent". Simply attending a meeting and standing up to object can be a way of stopping the implied consent model. If enough of us object the proliferation of cameras will stop. If we do nothing politicians will continue to install cameras, claiming that the people they "represent" want them.
As the famous quote often attributed to Irish political philosopher Edmund Burke says:
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
3. Write a letter to your local media
Write a letter outlining some of your concerns about surveillance cameras. Most newspapers allow you to submit a letter via email.
