The Panoptykon Foundation in cooperation with a couple of other civic groups and the Political Critique will organise a set of actions on 11 September 2010:

  • happening in one of the main streets in Warsaw (Krakowskie Przedmieście) raising awareness on the problem of proliferation of CCTV systems in the country; details to be confirmed
  • information point, where people will be provided with general information about the action (including its international context) and awareness-rising materials about surveillance;
  • movie screening followed by the discussion (most likley a documentary "Erasing David");
  • evening screenings of the footages (available on-line or captured during the action ) from CCTV system in Warsaw.

We invite everyone to cooperate. The action is open and inclusive.

Our happening and information action took about 2 hours. We screened live video image of the street, processed in the way that resembles CCTV, captured from 4 cameres hidden in the area. Some 15 people dressed up in white and masked acted as "visible surveillance cameras" and spoke to people in the street about the problem of surveillance. We have photos and video footage for future reference and info on our website (in Polish):
