Favelas need racial justice, not facial recognition: CIPÓ and partners in LeMonde

On June 9, 2022, Plataforma CIPÓ’s researcher, Gabrielle Alves, together with the researchers from the Bioni Consultancy, Isabela de Araújo and Renata Martinelli, and the co-founder of LabJaca, Thiago Nascimento, co-authored the article “LIGHTS, CAMERA, OPPRESSION: Favelas need racial justice, not facial recognition”, published by the newspaper LeMonde Diplomatique.

The article emphasizes the risks related to the adoption of facial recognition technology in public security activities and echoes the concerns raised by coalitions that advocate against the use of this technology, such as The Network of Security Observatories, The Panopticon, the Coalizão Direitos na Rede, the Ban Biometric Surveillance campaign, as well as the campaigns Stop Killer Robots and Take My Face out of Your Target, which are endorsed by Plataforma CIPÓ.
