+ 1984 Looks Like This - An exhibition by David Dunnico, Salford Museum +
Manchester documentary photographer David Dunnico, brings together his photographs of CCTV surveillance and his collection on George Orwell's novel '1984', in a new exhibition.
For a number of years, Dunnico has documented the rise of CCTV surveillance in a series of graphic black and white images, looking at those who operate it, sell it and oppose it. Alongside this, he has also built up a collection of editions and ephemera about George Orwell's 1984 - the book's changing covers tell how every new generation of readers finds Orwell's work frighteningly relevant to their own times. This exhibition brings both of these together and shows images of CCTV in use around Salford and Manchester, artwork of covers of George Orwell's 1984 and explores the books themes and engaging the audience by making them think and ask questions. So they can decide is Big Brother watching you?
There is a booklet to go with the exhibition available for free download from:

+ Freedom not fear events - Brussels, Belgium +
Saturday 17th - Monday 19th September 2011 Brussels
(Representatives of No CCTV will be attending the Brussels events).
European policy making is affecting our every day lives and civil liberties more and more. The EU is increasingly imposing unnecessary and disproportionate governmental surveillance measures on us. We will not take this any longer. Let's carry our protest into the capital of the EU!
We invite you to join us for three days of:
protest (Saturday, 17 September 2011)
networking (Sunday, 18 September 2011) and
debate with Members of the European Parliament and EU Commission staff (Monday, 19 September 2011).
Let us get together, meet friends from other parts of Europe and tell the EU that we won't take that continuous erosion of our fundamental rights any longer.

+ Life is too short to be controlled - part 2, London NoBorders +
Saturday 30th October 2010 3pm at Piccadilly Circus / corner of Coventry Street
"Life is too short to be controlled - Part II", a protest against internal and external borders. The protest will take place in London on Saturday 30 October 2010, gathering at 3pm at Piccadilly Circus ( corner of Coventry Street/Haymarket ) and then off towards the UK border at St Pancras.
What is this about?
While the migration regime is fortifying itself and setting up rings of defence around European wealth, inner control is tightening to keep public order, at a time where the nation state already seems to be a dead corpse. And with an economy which exploits the most virtual property, the need to control even the remotest parts of people's lives is increasing.
