What privacy in a world under surveillance?



    MONTREAL, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - The Ottawa-based International Civil
Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG), in cooperation with several international
human rights and privacy groups, is organizing a one-day civil society
workshop on privacy and surveillance on Tuesday, September 25, 2007, in
Montreal.
    Surveillance of movement through monitoring and profiling of travelers
and implementation of a new generation of entry-exit schemes, along with the
explosion of new technologies that enable the tracking and monitoring of
individuals - from RFIDs to search engine logs - are forcing us to rethink
privacy protection mechanisms.
    Speakers include representatives of Privacy International, the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Electronic and Privacy Information Center
(EPIC), Statewatch and many others. The full program is available at:
