UCSC’s internet computers have recently been highjacked, taken-over and destroyed by the new “Cruz ID” cybersurveillance log-in/password system.
Rather than just easily clicking anonymously right onto the Internet at our libraries (as it has been for years), UCSC’s IT (Internet Technology) Dept has recently instituted a new burdensome and time-consuming “log-in/password” system that is specifically DESIGNED to illegally track, monitor, identify, spy, surveil and record all users internet activity, history and printing sources.
I call on ALL UCSC students, faculty, alumni and staff to BOYCOTT and help END the new Cruz ID log-in system by filing complaints to the UCSC Administration to have the entire UCSC IT Dept FIRED for creating an illegal and unnecessary spy and surveillance system at our libraries.
Let us return the Internet back to the UCSC community and users jurisdiction, as well as bring back an anonymous ‘pay as you go’ printing system that protects and upholds the PRIVACY of all users of these resources.
Direct your complaints to the UCSC Administration at: firstname.lastname@example.org and online via the Science and McHenry library contact forms: http://library.ucsc.edu/library-suggestion-box Further complaints can be directed to the UCSC IT Dept at: email@example.com
Let us nip this police state takeover of our library internet access in the bud before they begin to install biometric spy and surveillance cameras on every building throughout campus (as Cabrillo College is now doing) to illegally spy, track, monitor, surveil, photograph and record our bodies, faces and identities as well- as they fully intend to do.
Such a network will provide REALTIME police state internet and camera surveillance directly to the NSA (the National Security Agency), who just opened up a huge new facility in Utah to compile and store data illegally on American’s internet activity, e-mail, phone records, GPS location and biometric identity signature movements. This information will also go though the so-called state “threat fusion centers” that have been set up all across the country in every state since 9/11. Such police state activities will ultimately destroy our precious freedoms and liberties as well as crush and enslave our educational institutions here in America.
Janet Napolitano, the former head of the US Dept of Homeland Security and now the so-called “President” of the University of California system, has been ordered by her peers in Washington, DC, New York and London to set up a UC surveillance grid precisely such as this during her tenure here. Will the UCSC community allow this egregious assault on our privacy and dignity to go unanswered?
BOYCOTT and END Cruz ID at UC Santa Cruz.
BAN ALL Spy and Surveillance Cameras on our Campus.
ENOUGH of this Madness!
