1:33 am
return to the delight of fans and an industry hit hard by curve at 19, but will travel restrictions and social distance in the shadow on the glitz and glamour across the globe generation change. we young activists, spicing injustices and demanding radical change. after a year long delay japan hostem. and unlike any the world has seen before. my son bob way, showcase his personal story, offering a fresh look at the changes and challenges that bob way face today. just by growing tension with the did since the dance, ethiopia is that for the next phase of filling them on the blue nile july on i just eat up the since early 2020. the world has been in the group of a panoramic that has cost millions of lives and affected billions more of us
1:34 am
through economic contraction and restrictions on our movements. much of a story is well documented, but the crisis is thrown up a question that so far receive little attention have measures taken in the name of defeating covey. 19, also done lasting damage to our civil liberties. we've been in search of ounces. ah, the, the corona virus pandemic has fullest governments around the world to take extra ordinary matches. closing cities, banning travel and making people stay at home a month at a time, ah,
1:35 am
in the race to defeat the disease. they've also had together huge amounts of data about whereabouts and i'll stay to help me. digital contact tracing tools offered the opportunity to address larger numbers of contacts in a shorter period of time and to provide real time picture of the spread of the virus. but privacy campaign is now asking if all the new laws, technology and data gathering has been strictly essential. the way i like to frame what's been going on since the initial stages of a panoramic has been 1st government panic and they panics because they recognize that they didn't have the infrastructure they needed. and so what did they do? they use the infrastructure they had, which was intelligence agencies, policing. and in the absence of any capability of testing, they thought, is there a way for technology to solve this problem?
1:36 am
what we know is the crisis is the ground on which long tiny raisins of our liberties see that it can feel really difficult making civil liberties arguments in the context of a crisis web about 911, which we've all learned an awful lot from whether that is the pandemic because you're often painted out, you don't care about public safety or public health. but exactly how about civil liberties been eroded? what's been going on under the cover of cove it and where? me. back in march 2020, the high tech city state of singapore was one of the most enthusiastic adopters of using mobile phones for contact tracing. play your part in fighting coby 19 with just 2 simple steps. one, download 3 together and help those around you to set it up to turn on your bluetooth. and it is as simple as that has in many countries. the government said
1:37 am
the app was voluntary, worked entirely on anonymized idea, and he's only tracking the virus, not the user. and that's really it know the cation, the other personal data is collected. but digital rights activists like li ting, when taking their word for it. when the tech experts examined the code for it, they found that it wasn't doing all the things that it so that would do. so for instance, at data would not be shared, would be totally anonymous and so on. they found that the data was shared more widely than we're supposed to with. so some government agencies at 1st take up with low until the app was made mandatory to access public areas like shopping mode. now it's used by nearly 80 percent of the population. the but in january 2021, the government admitted the police had access the data for a murder investigation,
1:38 am
police forces, and pollard under the criminal procedure court talk to any data. and that includes to to, to get a data for criminal investigations. even in normally cr yes and singapore, there was concern. it also brought up the question for people. so what data has been used and what types of investigations can we trust that this is the only time that this has happened? at the time i was volunteering quite have me with a sex fight organization. and one of my concerns was that the data phone contact tracing could be used to identify sex workers and their clients. this has your trace together history. so over the past 25 days, these are the number of times that devices with trace together have been pinged. and given that textbook from life and singapore and largely i was, i had some concerns. there is evidence to suggest digital contact rating can be
1:39 am
more effective, the manual tracing, but privacy campaign as the these methods of surveillance will out believe their initial years. that's going to be one of the legacies of cobra. the whole idea that you know about the phone and app and the telecommunications infrastructure designed for you to enjoy spending your time communicating with others will be used to enforce your own detention in the future. in israel, the government also employed mobile phone contact tracing, but use the method, the rage even more privacy concerns. while ordinary people struggled on the heavily police locked down the pandemic. let prime minister benjamin netanyahu divert public attention from fraud and bribery allegations, but demonstrations against corruption and the government handling of the pandemic erupted anyway. the oberon with
1:40 am
a regular protest during one of the lock them went outside meetings were permitted . she met with fellow activists. this is what we were doing that night. there was a party, a birthday party of one of my friends then the police just came in. we're starting to harass us and just wanted to leave a few days later, i got to the text message with the date and the hours you were near someone who was test positive for girl and a virus, you have to immediately start a warranty. and this might seem normal for many countries, but an emergency regulation had allowed the bad israel secret service to run its tracking praise program in the night. it's called love, but the sheet lender feel civilians cannot opt out to kevin off it. it's just the secret service tracking all civilians, anybody within israel, the are the only democracy in the world to this day that was using their secret
1:41 am
services to do this. the shin, better often accused of breaching human rights floor in the treatment of palestinians. but the revelation shows that they don't only operate in the west bank and occupied territory. the reason this happened is because the shouldn't bet already is tracing people instead of waiting for something new to be created. they already have a tool within the shin bet the to was a secret years long program to monitor telecommunications across the israel and palestine. i says really angry because i had a feeling that because we were there like many people from the process, it happened just about this event. it's an open question whether she was forced into quarantine because the state was targeting protesters or merely protecting citizen from a deadly disease, but civil rights campaign and say that with bad doing both, nobody would know in a democracy, can't be that surveillance state in the sense that
1:42 am
a government contracts, certain people, this can lead to a situation where the government knows about your sexual orientation about your political orientation. and what it can do is lead to freezing affects the phenomenon where people don't want to go outside and do certain things. let's say protests because they have a fear of, of being tracked off to several legal challenges. the government says the shin bet surveillance has now been scaled back. but the scandal opened at least some israeli eyes to the way palestinian, the routinely monitor. and i think that we finally have to fight against it in all areas. a doesn't matter if it's happened to and he's the citizen or to someone in the occupied territories. this is really, really bad. this is a slippery slope at the words violating human rights in the early stages of the pandemic. other government also experimented with the electronic mass tracking, but with only marginal success. ultimately,
1:43 am
it was recognized that this level of non surveillance doesn't actually help you with the pandemic. so they decided to resort to what they do often as the next step, which is rely extensively on industry to sell them toys. your system shows that your health play me. i would recommend you to the industry. many governments tend to with biometrics, which uses unique personal traits like a face iris or fingerprint to identify me for china, which was already openly using facial recognition and it's big cities. the pandemic turbocharged the roll out in smaller towns across the country. the claim, the biometric and contact transactions, a safer has obvious appeal for airline, keen to get people back into the air. says the ceo of quantas,
1:44 am
contact travel people. now we see the huge move to that. yours mirrors in the space of a few more waiting change that will stay there forever. it's also a change coming to retail. this leading russian supermarket has teamed up with visa, so you can pay for your shopping with your fate. a lot of it is a sort of form of tech solutions them, which is the idea that technology because it shawnee because it's new, contains all the outs until about problems in many people. so the unquestioningly trust technology or fume that it's going to be the most efficient or the best solution. but critics say biometrics is an industry with a checkered past around pre 911 where the facial recognition was being touted by police, particularly in the united states as the great solution to producing problems without recognizing that their own force was turned off the tech because it wasn't actually working, then 911 happened 2 months later and all of
1:45 am
a sudden governments are reaching for facial recognition in fingerprinting. so we deployed them at borders, who put them in passports without ever asking who does it work for? when does it work? when does it fail? what happens to somebody who it fails for today to get detained because something doesn't match. the biometric industry, same says, goes where the areas of opportunity, money and few questions a few years ago by industry is looking for a new market and a then decide to go for the next great domain of policy making where we don't care what happens to people and that was in the migration sector and refugees and refugee camps. so our refugee agencies and, and governments for sponsoring refugee agencies to deploy fingerprinting. iris scan facial recognition. and again, i got a close up view of some of these in the, in refugee camps. the only people who didn't realize that the technology didn't work where the policy makers, everybody else knew the technology wasn't working, but it didn't stop the fail, the reliance and they being our people's lives based around yes. now did the system
1:46 am
say you're allowed and or did the system deny you? because it failed campaign and say these systems are often 1st tried out away from critic hello in the west like biometric voting, which has been trial in afghanistan. uganda in here in iraq, with a panoramic, maybe we can use facial recognition with people's face was covered. maybe we can use cameras to attract people across cities to do contact tracing. and in a post pandemic your, we can use facial recognition at borders. we can use facial recognition shops, we can use facial recognition everywhere. and then we've forgotten why we deployed it with biometrics and bias to say that there is a real risk that i'll kind of personal identity faces. are fingerprints the irises, we can't change those, they will be locked into a system forever. they can be exposed to by hackers. they can be forced to biometric because governments and them with stock has no way of resetting your face
1:47 am
. it's not like a password. this is a kind of a permanent solution to a temporary problem. the. the temporary, becoming permanent, is just one of the consent campaign of have around the chest data. still a joint computer system fail using the personal data held by britain national health service wherever you live and have yourself. as many i mentioned before, the personal information on over 60000000 people often going back decades has, has one of the biggest stores of patient records going back through time. globally . it says standouts in terms of the knowledge base of it has. and it's wes billions of pounds and base or is the new oil as we know, data is money. normally any test data can only be used by those treating a patient. but when the pandemic struck, the rules were loosened. in march 2020, then a chest announced that they were setting up something called the cove at 19 dates
1:48 am
and they dentist in to 5 contracts with different tech companies. and that, that data store was going to be the kind of single source of truth about the pandemic. for the m h f. the data store pulls together information from across the fast in a test, including confidential details given to the 111 helpline, and even tech company location data. this would supposedly help ministers allocate resources by providing them with a real time dashboard of all aspects of the pandemic. but from the outset, almost every element of a worried privacy campaign as it was extremely vague. we didn't know what date was going into it. we didn't know how it was being used and it was very secretive and emerge stopped. the contract had gone to the parents who built the backbone. this for just one pound, which was soundcloud trisic, foundry, as a software that allows organizations to bring that data together. and then enables
1:49 am
they use to conduct sophisticated analytics and operations on top of the unified data. currently have been criticized for providing its data mining capability to the cia and the us border force division ice, responsible for detaining and expelling migrants. they are not particularly well known for health. they are much more well known in relation to their defense contracts. by tech b, u. s. police forces, they are not the company that certainly we would immediately think would be appropriate. and indeed, we don't think are appropriate for an h s. contrast. but the british government didn't seem that concerned when asked by a technology journalist, what talented might hope to get from a one pound contract. the secretary of state for health replied, the honest truth is, there is no way we would have been able to cope with this pandemic, and deal with in the way that we have been able to without the support of the tech
1:50 am
companies. they've been absolutely brilliant. i put it's given the platforms that we need and lots of them gave over their time and their capability for public benefits probably by night. rosa curling organization. foxglove, a u. k. law firm set up to challenge big tech, took legal proceedings which both the government to reveal the contract, which was for a pilot or trial project. the contract also detailed the types of data being used. what we did say was that the coven 19 date store, was collecting data on political affiliation, religious beliefs, that was correcting information about criminal convictions and ethnic data. employment data. there was no understanding of why political religious data was need, is the coven, 19 data? and much of this information is relevant to scientists. battling the pandemic. dr.
1:51 am
pullman k works on britain faxing program. we have no interest in people bio, political affiliate, or any of that type of thing. we're just interested in the virus. how many cases are being picked up in a certain place? and then using that data to try and target interventions. it may need begin on sequence thing that is guiding what we do. privacy campaign also worried about mission creek. the one set up this huge system would continue in operation off to the pandemic and expand into other areas. the government promised it was temporary, and then patented, signed a new deal for 23000000 pounds. rosa went back to call and was allowed to see the new contract. the paperwork made clear that the mission crate, the fact that the contract itself set out and confirmed the purpose of the dates to was going to be increased and widens. and the other issue began to also be
1:52 am
looked at. so the exit business monitoring, as usual, whatever that may mean, relevant pandemic, the flu, the government decline to respond to us directly. but as the story was unfolding, the said, strict state rules apply to everyone involved in helping in this critical task. the companies do not control the data and are not permitted to use or share it for their own purposes. at the end of the health emergency, their work will either be deleted or returned to be in a chat. in april 2021 talented became an official u. k. government supplier. they've also signed contract with other european governments, including greece and the netherlands to help ministries of the world are just, you know, there's such prime targets for this industry. that is, they're sitting on a lot of data. don't know what to do with it. and then suddenly a sales person is knocking on the door saying, hey, we have experience from building policing systems, border systems,
1:53 am
immigration systems on taking mounds of data mining and finding something interesting. why don't use us and we will help you. but it's our most sensitive and personal in our health data, and it's being used to essentially go the next generation of profiling technology. but it's not just government that are accused of monitoring people under the cover of coded. good afternoon, you for me to brian who can assist you today as millions around the world. and now working from home, like brian unions raising concerns about the new forms of surveillance. he's going to get the billing. we'll see what we can find. brian's employer requires him to account for every 2nd of his day. so when i go to click into what's called the code, it's basically notify them where i am and i have to go into the bathroom for me, i'm going to ask. so when i get back as a few going, where are you?
1:54 am
when's your time get back on calls? so could absolutely be monitored and we'll cool send to work. it's long been heavily monitored, but it's intensified with the move working from home without a metal thing. not all the gangs were pounds it on a list of who stated monetary reasons. i don't want people, i've never met to see my my head much. i think it's reasonable the social agenda down until i don't know if i was a woman, i wouldn't necessarily want some man. i've never met being able to just randomly view my webcam and in a university of scrapped slide survey, 45 percent of all people working from home in the u. k said they are remotely watched in the face of the prospect union. andrew pay his worried what we've seen in the last year is that hand reach out from traditional industries where micromanagement is more common into all walks of life and whether it's office workers working at home. whether it's other phones professionals that study by
1:55 am
digital rights organization, top 10 vpn, showed us sales of surveillance software increased by 51 percent during the pandemic. you've got software now that can measure your key strikes, how fast you're typing on your laptop or what word you're typing. it is easy now for employees to check your e mails for key words, whether you're chatting to different workers and who you're coming to. brian gives us a flavor of what they feel like. we have a, i guess, an employee for them when the web and i was, that was one of the few times people were right angry. and there was a said that disappears. so that just vanishing suddenly. and there was then a 2nd fed, under people with enough fed saying, i've been told by showing the pitch is the analytics allow companies to improve stuff productivity, thus increasing profit. but brian thinks employers benefit in other ways. it's also a sort of repressive measure. i think workers are much less likely to organize are
1:56 am
much less likely to forget industrial action. you can speak to each other. this tracking is a global phenomena and amazon closed up roll when announced the roll out of a i enabled cameras in the usa, the monitor neighborhood, and their drivers pressing and holding the driver alert button for 5 seconds. we'll turn the driver facing camera off. so you can have privacy while taking a break turn of iris has been the opportunity for businesses and for governments to massively increase their power to increase that surveillance to increase their kind of control of every kind of minute area of our lives. and to roll that back is going to be very difficult. once these things orange juice for the greater good fry and safety are in health, in the guise of public health. civil rights advocates the this surveillance will be
1:57 am
extended by the same measures. many countries hope will allow travel to review health passports. many leaders see them as a key to normality. the almost empty results at southern europe have helped convince the european union. with this digital certificate, we aim to help member states reinstate the freedom of movement in a safe, responsible and trusted manner. israel has reopened gyms and hotels with its green pulse. currently, a q r code showing vaccination, state many, including vaccine scientists think they are inevitable elsewhere. i don't personally like the idea back seem passport, but obviously of another country and that we show that we have been but they did. we want to go to their country, we would have to have asked for and obviously for local us, i think it's a terrible i get, i would discriminate against people. but the civil rights campaign is the dangers.
1:58 am
go much deeper than discrimination. wouldn't be a side effect of this discrimination is the whole point of the whole point of the co. the hospital would be to create a 2 tier societies where the wealthy with that shiny kind of passes can go to the special loc, sedated only hotels vaccinate stoney restaurants in the airplanes, and never kind of continued privilege life. while those who are unable to show the right digital pass are locked out society permanently. in fact, critic fair all of the intrusive new technology that a paid during the pandemic is here to say. you don't build all that tech to then just easily shut it down. the moment that the w h o says it's no longer a pandemic. 911 allowed for the use of identification at borders and for transport in a way that we've never had. and what governments have never had the capacity to do before with the add the next desirable layer, which is health,
1:59 am
medical and personal detail, personal information. and so we'll have built the infrastructure for all of that. and all of a sudden you have the perfect identity system involving biometrics, modern software, smartphones, all the fight, a pandemic. that one would hope, that if you deploy the vaccines sufficiently, you don't need a passport anymore. but you'll have an identity system as the end result of this entire initiative. the i am sorry, i should be about raising prices entirely down to the time we bring you the stories and developments that are rapidly changing the world we live in prime in that said they had made up as the task of fixing a war torn economy,
2:00 am
counting the cost on al jazeera, me play an important role, protecting human 9. the doctor's face. ah ah, with i think explosion causes fire, the biggest holes in the middle east rocking buildings across the city of to buy. ah. so are you watching on there like my headquarters hearing, also coming up heading for police custody south africa for what president jacob zimmer is sent to hand himself in for a jail sentence. we'll have a live update. also a state of emergency in haiti after president.
