1984 Action Day

This campaign is about organising an international action day around the 8th of June, the date that George Orwell’s 1984 was first published in 1949. The date will be marked by protests against CCTV cameras and other surveillance, by groups from around the world.

George Orwell described his book as an illustration:

“of the perversions to which a centralized economy is liable and which have already been partly realized in Communism and Fascism. I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe (allowing of course for the fact that the book is a satire) that something resembling it could arrive. I believe also that totalitarian ideas have taken root in the minds of intellectuals everywhere, and I have tried to draw these ideas out to their logical consequences.”

As society continues towards the “logical consequences” of which Orwell warned, campaigners will be asking: “When will you fight back?”

Our goal is to raise awareness of how far Orwell’s vision has already come true, having a special focus on how scarily far CCTV technology has grown and how our societies are being driven by this development.

We are an open group, a collection of human beings and non-governmental organisations raising our concerns about the newest developments in tracking, tracing, face recognition and data investigations.

We are independent and above party lines.

Everybody is welcome to join.

  1. Greetings from Germany.
    I read 1984 in English original (unabridged) version when I was eighteen.
    some of its central sayings are engraved in my heart since that time.
    This is the most important one:
    “freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If this is granted, all else follows.”
    When we look at the many gross irrationalities in our daily lives to-day
    which we are not, or not really, allowed even to call by name,
    let go of changing something about them…
    see, we already lost most of our freedom;
    for its base in the world, Common Sense, has been seriously undermined.
    Well “sanity is not statistical” as is said in another place of the 1984 story –
    but if the in-sane are in power by being the majority, what can the remaining sane humans still do?
    At least we can cultivate Common Sense, preserve it,
    for times when it has a chance at last to rule again.
    For – 1984 again ! – “the heresy of all heresies is Common Sense” i.e. it is the opposite of Tyranny.

  2. If you think CCTV is scary, wait until they switch you on for #V2K remote neural monitoring via satellite #SkyNet so they can electronically stalk you, see you naked in the shower through your own eyes, monitor your thoughts, prompt you to think what they tell you and psychologically harass you 24/7 courtesy and futuristic Orwellian technology developed by CIA US military laboratories for the Iraq war but now being covertly used to brainwash and place oppressive mind control over inner civilians with no criminal record and activists, conservationists etc. 1984 is here, only worse, and I was switched on by hostile neighbours at Horseshoe Bay, Magnetic Island, Queensland, Australia. The technology is also being illegally and covertly used by a large network of rogue police and paramedics in Cairns who surrounded me just over a year ago on the Bruce Highway and abducted me (they had no lawful reason to deny me liberty – I had not broken the law, was not drunk and had not been standing on the road). One of them almost broke my arm by twisting it before applying unnecessary handcuffs. I was then driven to Cairns Base Hospital for an illegal assessment where, despite having been told that I’m sane the next morning, I was incarcerated for several days until they released me. A very scary experience yet the authorities have failed to properly investigate my allegations.
