Nottingham Defy-ID group back in business

Nottingham Defy-ID | 15.03.2008 14:45 | Repression | Social Struggles | Technology

After taking a bit of a break, Notts Defy-ID have started meeting again on a regular basis. As the National Identity Register creeps back into the political landscape (did it ever really go away?) there is an urgent need to take collective action and stop it in its tracks. Defend anonymity! Defy ID!

Whilst it keeps getting put back in time, the introduction of a National Identity Register is still most definitely on the state's agenda. They may well be talking about not making the card compulsory, but if all our data is on a central database anyway, does that make any difference? Anyone who is opposed to the state introducing this oppressive social control must
try to resist it.

Notts Defy-ID are a non-hierarchical group, committed to collective means of resistance to ID cards and other oppressive surveillance. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, 6pm at the Sumac Centre, Gladstone St. Please come along and get involved.
