6:31 am
the information indicates they are colombian citizens retired members of the national army. we've given instruction by the national government to our police and the army to collaborate in the investigation. to clarify these facts immediately. public force is fully at the disposition of the republic of haiti. the un here is the council, discuss the controversial mega down that if you, his building on the nile, egypt, and pseudo, and raised economic and security concerns about the project. if you says the method should be discussed at the african union, us president joe biden says american troops will leave on his own by august 30. first. he insists the u. s. as achieved its objectives after nearly 20 years of war . but the withdrawal comes as the top bog continues to seize more territory. off of all us states, the thing arise and cove in 1900 cases, among unvaccinated people,

there's been an 11 percent increase in cases last week. most of them in areas with low vaccination rates, the delta variance of the has become the dominant covered 19 strain in the country . south korea will raise cry of ice restrictions for the highest level and the capital sol and some neighboring regions from monday. the country reported its biggest a rise in new cases, and this phase numbers could double by the end of july. the delta veterans has fuel the surge didn't pick towards his arrived in the hose, city of tokyo, 2 weeks away out from the games. now there will be no spectators, a villain, pick events in the japanese capital. those are the headlines. the news continues here on our 0 after people and power. i am sorry should be about raising prices and harley down to the government. we bring you the stories and developments that are rapidly changing the world we live in time in the
6:33 am
designated adult who has the task of fixing a war torn economy. counting the cost on al jazeera, the since early 2020. the world has been in the grip of a panoramic that has cost millions of lives and affected billions more of us through economic contraction and restrictions on our movements. much of a story is well documented, but the crisis is turned 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,
6:34 am
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 the time, ah, in the race to defeat the disease. they've also had together huge amounts of data about whereabouts and i'll state of help me digital contact. pressing tools offered the opportunity to try this larger numbers of contacts in a short 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
6:35 am
what's been going on since the initial stages of a panoramic husband, 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, police and then in the absence of any capability of testing, they thought, is there a way for technology to solve this problem? well, we know it's a crisis is the ground on which long tiny raisins of our liberties see that it can feel really difficult making several agencies arguments in the context of a crisis. you know, whether that is 911, which we've all learned an awful lot from whether that is dependent because you're often painted out, you don't care about public safety or public health. but exactly how about civil liberties being eroded?
6:36 am
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 of using mobile phones for contact tracing. play your part in fighting code 19 with just to symbol step 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 the app was voluntary, worked entirely on anonymized idea, and he's only tracking the virus is not the user. and that really is no job cation, no other personal data is collected. but digital rights activists like li ting was 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 said it would do. so for
6:37 am
instance, data would not be shared, would be totally anonymous and so on. they found that the data was shared more widely than they were supposed to do with 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 murder, investigation, properties, forces impala under the criminal procedure code to any data. and that includes to try to get a data for criminal investigations, even in normally creation cinnapool that was concern. it also brought up as a question for people. so what is their data has been used in 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 sex as fight organization. and one of my concerns was that the
6:38 am
data on contact tracing could be used to identify sex workers and their clients. this has your trace together history. so over the 25 days, these are the number of times that devices trace together have been pinged. and different that's i guess from life and singapore, largely i was, i had some concerns. there is evidence to suggest digital contact rating can be more effective, the manual tracing. but privacy campaigners be these methods of surveillance without believe their initial yes, that's going to be one of the legacies of cobra. the whole idea that your mobile 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. israel,
6:39 am
the government also employed mobile phone for contact tracing, but use the method, the raid even more privacy concerns. while ordinary people struggled on the heavily police locked towns. the panoramic 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 baron was a regular protest. during one of the lock them went outside meetings were permitted . he met up with fellow activists. this is what we were doing that night. there was a birthday party of one of my friends then the police just came in. we're starting to harass ethan 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 her and
6:40 am
a virus. you have to immediately start a warranty. and this might seem normal for many countries, but an emergency regulation had allowed the shin bad israel secret service to run its tracking trade program. in the tub lubbock ashley sheet lender feel civilians cannot opt out academy and it's just the secret service tracking all civilians. anybody with in israel the are the only democracy in the world to this day that was using their secret services to do this machine, but are often accused of breaching human rights floor in their treatment of palestinians. but the revelation showed 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 ship bed. the 2 was a secret long program to monitor telecommunications across the israel and palestine
6:41 am
. 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, it can't be that surveillance in the sense that 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 affect 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 trapped after several legal challenges. the government says the shouldn't bet. surveillance has now been scaled back, but the scandal opened at least some israeli eyes to the way palestinian,
6:42 am
the routinely monitored. 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 really citizen or to some occupied territories. this is really, really bad. this is a slippery slope towards 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, it was recognized that this level of math surveillance doesn't actually help you with a 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 be approved. i would recommend you to the industry. many governments tend to with biometrics, which uses unique personal traits like
6:43 am
a face iris fingerprint to identify me for china, which was already openly using facial recognition and it's big cities. the pandemic turbocharged, the rollout 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 quantity called tankless tribal people. now we see the huge new to that years mills 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 this is a sort of form of tech solution at them, which is the idea that technology because it's showing me because it's new, contains all the answers to all of our problems and in many people. so the
6:44 am
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 check in around the pre $911.00 where facial recognition was being touted by police, particularly in the united states as the great solution to producing problems without recognizing their own forces. i turned off the tech because it wasn't actually working. then $911.00 happens just months later, and all of a sudden governments are reaching for facial recognition and 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 saying 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,
6:45 am
where we don't care what happens to people and that was in the migration sector and refugees in refugee camps. so refugee agencies and, and governments for sponsoring refugee agencies and the deploy fingerprinting iris scan facial recognition. and again, i got a close up view of somebody's in the, in refugee camps. the only people who didn't realize that the technology didn't work where the policymakers, everybody else knew the technology wasn't working, but it didn't stop to fail the reliance and the shaping of people's lives based around yes. now did the system say you're allowed and or did the system deny you? because it failed campaign to say these systems are often 1st tried out away from critical eyes in the west like biometric voting, which has been trialed in afghanistan, uganda, and here in iraq with a panoramic, maybe we can use facial recognition with people's faces 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
6:46 am
recognition shops, we can use a 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 fingerprint 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 biometric because governments and then when it was stock has no way of resetting your face. it's not like a pamphlet. 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. where do you live and have yourself? as many i mentioned before, we know the old personal information on over 60000000 people often going back
6:47 am
decades has, has one of the biggest stores of patient records going back through time globally. it says standouts in terms of the data it has and it's billions of pounds and they serve as the new oil, as we know a day to raise money. no, really, 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 cobit 19 date. and that they turned into 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
6:48 am
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 they was going into it. we didn't know how it was being used, and it was very secretive and emerge that the contract had gone to the parents who built the backbone. this for just one pound, which was soundcloud trisic, to foundry, as a software that allows organizations to bring that data together and then enables 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 eyes 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. the by tech b, u. s. police forces,
6:49 am
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 contract. 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. 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 companies. they've been absolutely brilliant at putting together 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 thought club 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
6:50 am
data being used. what we did say was that the coven 19 data store, was collecting data on political affiliation, religious beliefs, it was correcting information about criminal convictions, ethnic data, employment data. there is no understanding of why elliptical religious data was need is the covert line, teen data. and much of this information is relevant to scientists. battling the pandemic. dr. pullman k work from britain faxing program. we have no interest in what people buy or affiliation 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 intervention? it may need the genome sequencing that is guiding what we do previously campaign also worried about mission creek. the one set up this huge system would continuing
6:51 am
operation off to the pandemic and expand into other areas. the government from it. it was temporary and then pounding to signed a new deal for 23000000 pounds. rosa went back to call and was allowed to see the new contract. a paper was made clear that the mission create the spare. so the contract itself set out and confirmed the purpose of the day to the door was going to be increased and widened. and the other issues began to also be 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 jeff said, strict state rules apply to everyone involved in helping in this critical task. companies do not control the data and are not committed to use or share it for their own purposes. at the end of the health emergency,
6:52 am
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 that. and then suddenly a sales person is knocking on the door saying, hey, we have experience from building police thing systems, border systems, immigration systems, on taking mounds of data, mining it, 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 build 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,
6:53 am
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 billing. we'll see what we can find brian's employ required to account for every 2nd of his day. so when i go to so i have to click into what's called a code. it's basically notify them where i am. and i think there's about going to the bathroom for me. i'm going to ask. so when i get back as a few messages going, where are you? when's your time get back on calls. so could absolutely be monitored in real time. cool thing to work has long been heavily monitored, but it's intensified with the moods working from home without a mental thing. you'd all be getting it on a list of who state as mandatory reasons. i don't want people. i've never met to see my history much. i think it's reasonable the social agenda down into like, i don't know if i was a woman, i wouldn't necessarily want some man i've never met and being able to just randomly
6:54 am
view my webcam. and in a university, strathclyde survey, 45 percent of old people working from home in the u. k said they are remotely watched in the face of the prospect uni. and andrew pay is worried. what we've seen in the last year is that hand reach out from traditional industries where micro management 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 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 sponsoring to brian gives us a flavor of what they feel like we have, i guess, an employee for them when they are. and that was one of the few times people were
6:55 am
right angry and there was a threat that disappears. so that just vanished suddenly. and there was in a 2nd fed, under his people with an upset saying, i've been told i can call the pitch is the analytics allow companies to improve staff productivity, thus increasing profit. but brian thinks employees benefit in other ways. it's also a sort of repressive measure. i think workers are much less likely to organize are much less likely to get industrialized. we can speak to each other. this tracking is a global phenomena. and amazon cool is that role when announced the rollout 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 could have privacy while taking a break, the current
6:56 am
r as has been the opportunity for businesses and governments to massively increase their power to increase their 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 fraud and safety, far and health in the guise of public health. civil rights advocates the this surveillance will be 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
6:57 am
puff. currently, a q r code showing vaccination status in many, including vaccine scientists think they are inevitable elsewhere. i don't personally like the idea for boxing passport, but obviously of another country. and that we, we have, they did, we want to go to their country. we would have to have boxes obviously for local us. i think it's a terrible, i get. it would discriminate against people. but for civil rights campaign is the dangerous go much deeper. discrimination wouldn't be a side effect of this discrimination is the whole point of the whole point to the co. the hospital would be to create a 2 tier societies where the wealthy with that shiny co passes, can go to the special vaccinated 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,
6:58 am
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, medical and personal detail, personal information answer will 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.
