Choices and opportunities about our futures will be taken away from us simply for being who we are. We must fight back against the powerful governments and corporations and make sure that technology truly works for all of us; not for the greed, and control of the powerful few.
Under constant biometric mass surveillance, our faces and bodies expose us to the manipulation and impulses of authorities and companies. We are watched and judged based on how we look. We become anxious, less comfortable and less free to be ourselves. Evidence shows that they put us into boxes based on how they perceive our ethnicity, our gender, our age and more. They claim to know what we are doing or thinking by how we swing our arms, the shape of our head or the look on our face. We don’t even know that these unfair and often discriminatory assumptions are being made about us.Yet they will be permanently linked to our faces and our bodies, forever, wherever we go.
