No Spy Planes Over Baltimore
TAKE ACTION NOW
We can’t trust the Baltimore Police Department to protect our privacy. Tell Commissioner Michael Harrison you oppose the spy plane program.
Baltimore Police have a terrible history of racial bias and lack of accountability for abuses. It should be the last place to test a new mass surveillance scheme.
If the Baltimore Police Department moves forward with the spy plane program, Baltimore City is just the beginning. What happens here will determine what happens in the rest of the country. Persistence Surveillance Systems, the private company behind these spy planes, already has its sights set on other cities. Many of those cities have a majority of Black residents, too, and are places where activists have also been rising up to hold police accountable for abuse and killings by police.
Spy planes violate people’s rights and should never be used against our residents under the guise of public safety. We need to invest in Black communities and effective, grassroots-based solutions to attack the root causes of violence. Mass surveillance won’t make us safer.
Take action to say NO to spy planes over Baltimore.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison
