The Government is
working on plan for ‘marking’ people attending demonstrations or protest
marches using the latest in RFID technology.
I have been made
aware by a political source in Brussels that as European and Government
legislation becomes more ever more intrusive and control orientated, it is
expected that the frequency and intensity of demonstrations and even civil
action may become more widespread across Europe.
Police forces in
the UK have already been training for mass civil disobedience and now anti
demonstrator planners across Europe intend to use miniature RFID chips in a ‘cloud’
to be dropped from rooftops or helicopter to ‘mark’ those in attendance in anti
government marches and demonstrations.
The RFID chips
are so small that they would get into the hair and clothing, and possibly be
breathed in by every individual present and would be virtually impossible to remove.
(have you ever tried to get rid of party glitter).
Police would then
set up check points with RFID scanners in a perimeter around the venue, as well
as railway stations and bus stops, allowing them to identify those who attended
up to weeks afterwards.
version of RFID chips are smaller than a grain of sand, only measuring 0.05 x
0.05 mm, and come with a 128-bit memory
capable of storing an identification number of up to 38 digits. Using the ID
number on the chips, Police would be able to identify which demonstration
people attended , or even whether they had attended more than one demonstration.
