Big Brother

Published by CAMPACC, 2005

Iris scans... DNA databases... the National Identity Register... facial recognition systems... numberplate tracking...

Isn’t the Surveillance State getting a bit out of hand ?

Kids in prison... curfews... ASBOs handed out for doing things that aren’t against the law... people stuck in house arrest without charge or trial... refugees deported for their beliefs, facing torture and execution... anti-terrorism legislation being used to target pacifists...

It’s all a bit worrying, if you think about it...

A race to the bottom in public standards... tabloid editors dictating the political agenda... The War on Terror - a self-perpetuating war without end...

Maybe George Orwell was on to something ?

What you need is a bit of escapism. A bit of light relief. A comic, perhaps ? Read on...

A Permanent State of Terror?

Published by CAMPACC in association with Index on Censorship, 2003

If you were to believe the newspaper headlines the threat from terrorism is getting greater every day. Both police and politicians in the UK have even said that it is only a matter of time before the country is faced with a major attack.

But is the threat a reality? Is it any more real than the WMD in Iraq? Is Al-Qaeda operating on our doorstep? Or does talking up such dangers serve some sinister political purpose? What are the real reasons for the suspension of civil liberties and the introduction of a “state of emergency”? Who benefits, apart, for example, from the intelligence services and arms manufacturers?

Listen to the Refugee's Story: How UK Investment Creates Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Co-published by the Ilisu Dam Campaign Refugee Project, The Corner House and Peace in Kurdistan, A5, 132 pages, 2003.

The vast majority of refugees today flee conflict, or social or economic oppression. In many cases, British companies, taxpayers and the government directly and indirectly support the human rights abuses that accompany British investment and policies abroad. Many of these abuses ultimately force people to flee their homes and then their countries.

This publication includes stories, poems and drawings from refugees and asylum seekers, including Kurds, Colombians, Afghans, Nigerians, Burmese and Somalis, about why they have been forced to flee their countries. The book highlights broader links between enforced migration and global economic processes, poses key questions about trade and development policies and corporate accountability, and addresses the effects of the current "war on terrorism" on different communities.
