    HK’s pro-establishment lawmakers make case for surveillance cameras in classrooms

    Coming soon, to a classroom near you!

    Hong Kong’s pro-establishment lawmakers make case for surveillance cameras in classroom to monitor teachers’ speech
    Recording teaching sessions would reveal if students were being subjected to ‘subversive remarks’, says Liberal Party chairman Tommy Cheung
    Meanwhile, with opposition lawmakers now absent, a motion of thanks to city leader Carrie Lam is expected to cap final day of debate over her policy speech

    Surveillance cameras should be installed in Hong Kong schools to monitor teachers’ speech, pro-establishment lawmakers argued on Friday as they wrapped a three-day debate of the city leader’s policy address.

    Discontent over the city’s education system took centre stage during the Legislative Council session, though a motion of thanks for Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor’s November policy speech was expected to be passed in the afternoon.

    While no such motion passed in 2019, last year’s mass resignation of the opposition camp in protest of Beijing’s decision to disqualify four incumbent pan-democrats means Legco is now almost solely the province of 41 pro-establishment lawmakers.

    Many of that group on Friday called on authorities to step up the monitoring and regulation of teachers. Liberal Party chairman Tommy Cheung Yu-yan, an adviser to the Executive Council, Lam’s de facto cabinet, suggested placing CCTV cameras in classrooms would reveal if teachers had made “subversive remarks”.

    “The recordings can help schools monitor their teaching, and can also prove some innocent if they are smeared,” Cheung argued.

    Education officials had said in July that it was up to individual schools to take what measures they saw fit to “prevent crime”, though monitoring efforts would have to be in line with the city’s existing privacy laws.

    Another Exco member, lawmaker Martin Liao Cheung-kong, said officials should be more cognisant of the adverse implications educators can have on the young.

    “If some teachers have ulterior political motives and hope to bring politics into schools, their untrue claims made in classrooms could deeply impact students negatively … We should take the initiative to identify horses that spoil the whole herd,” he said.

    As she rolled out the policy address in November, Lam said she aimed to rebuild confidence in a city beset by political turmoil, adding it was “heartbreaking” that, among the more than 10,000 arrestees suspected of violating the law in connection with the anti-government protests, 40 per cent were students.

    Since taking office in 2017, Lam has delivered four policy addresses, with lawmakers formally thanking her for the first two by way of the symbolic motion.

    The motion of thanks was not introduced in 2019, as opposition lawmakers held up the House Committee’s work with months of filibustering to stop a national anthem law and other bills from being approved.

    Just found this gem:

    Chinese Authorities Require Surveillance Cameras to Be Installed Inside Rental Housing

    The Epoch Times
    BY FRANK FANG, EPOCH TIMES
    April 11, 2019 Updated: April 11, 2019

    In China, the Orwellian fear of a “big brother” state is becoming a reality, as citizens in rental properties are complaining about police demands to install surveillance cameras in their living rooms.

    “Ever since the surveillance cameras have been installed, I have to dress neatly, even when I’m at home,” an unidentified male tenant living in Hangzhou, the capital of eastern China’s Zhejiang Province, told a reporter with the online magazine Bitter Winter.

    “It also feels strange when my wife and I want to have a private conversation,” he said. “After returning home, we’re still being monitored at all times, as if we are in a prison. This is unrelated to preventing theft; this is close-up surveillance!”

    He was told by his landlord that local police are conducting random inspections, and any that landlord who fails to install a surveillance camera inside a rental property would be fined 500 yuan (about $74).

    Mandated Cameras in Zhejiang, Fujian

    This isn’t an isolated incident. Several Hangzhou residents told Bitter Winter that local police have been ordering landlords to install the cameras at rental properties since November last year. The police explanation is to “guard against theft.”

    Another unnamed Hangzhou resident, while seeking out a rental home, said he saw police notices posted at the entrance to several rental management centers, which are government offices that assist people in their rental search, among other services.

    The notice read: “Surveillance cameras must be installed before the landlord registers their rental property. Each living room must have a surveillance camera that faces the main entrance to the property.”

    An unidentified female tenant in Hangzhou told Bitter Winter that she moved out of a rental home five months earlier because she couldn’t live with the idea of a surveillance camera in her home. But it appears she can’t avoid the requirement at her new rental home in Hangzhou either, she said.

    The woman said that the surveillance system in her gated residential community was being upgraded: Now, all residents must pass through facial-recognition checkpoints before being allowed to enter.

    Security personnel at the woman’s residential community said that the installation was ordered by local authorities, as part of a project called “building intelligent communities.”

    At another Hangzhou residential complex with more than 1,000 units, about one-third of apartments are already outfitted with surveillance cameras, according to a security guard employed there who spoke with Bitter Winter.

    In Fujian Province, which neighbors Zhejiang, local police are enforcing a policy that surveillance devices be set up on top of door locks of some rental properties, according to Bitter Winter. Workers who were assigned to install the devices told the magazine that local authorities seek to use them to monitor who is leaving and entering the properties.

    One unnamed landlord in Fujian said she had to pay 1,500 yuan (about $223) to install the surveillance devices—if not, “the police station will give you lots of trouble,” she said, according to Bitter Winter.

    ‘Intelligent Communities’

    Beginning in the early 2010s, the concept of “intelligent communities” became a topic of discussion within regional Chinese governments. The idea was part of the broader “smart city”: Beijing’s plan to incorporate high-tech infrastructure, including artificial intelligence (AI), into the country’s metropolises—mostly for surveillance purposes.

    In 2013, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released a white paper outlining Beijing’s agenda for Chinese smart cities.

    Several years later, in July 2017, the State Council issued a set of new AI development guidelines to both provincial and municipal governments, calling for residential communities to install AI-based security systems in the name of public safety.

    Since then, different regional governments have issued policies to comply with the mandate. In October 2018, for example, the provincial government of Hubei Province issued technical requirements for residential properties, including facial-recognition systems installed at the entrances, as well as “intelligent door locks” with internet connection capability—to ensure that only tenants have access to the property. It specifically stated that neither landlords nor tenants can voluntarily change the settings on the locks.

    Data collected by these “intelligent community” security systems—including residents’ names, ID numbers, gender, family members, marital status, and registered vehicles—are then required to be uploaded onto a cloud platform set up by the local police.

    The Hubei government called such guidelines an extension of China’s Xueliang Project.

    Beijing first proposed the “Xueliang,” or “Sharp Eyes Project” (“xueliang” literally translates to “bright as snow”) in 2008, as a rural counterpart to its previously announced plan to blanket urban areas with more than 20 million surveillance cameras.

    Critics have pointed out that these surveillance systems could be used by Beijing to track political targets, or crack down on dissidents who are critical of the Chinese regime.

    “[The surveillance camera system] is a huge network aimed at controlling people’s behavior on the streets,” Hu Jia, a Chinese dissident who lives in Beijing, told nonprofit broadcaster Radio Free Asia in a 2015 interview.

    Earlier this year, a Dutch cyber expert discovered that SenseNets Technology, a Shenzhen-based tech company that develops facial-recognition software, was tracking the movements of residents in Xinjiang, home to many Uyghurs and other Turkic minorities, through its surveillance camera system.

    Louisa Greve, director of external affairs at the Washington-based advocacy group Uyghur Human Rights Project, described the discovery as “proof of the breathtaking scale, and the government’s use, of the Uyghur homeland as a laboratory of repression.”

    In December 2017, Li Xuewen, a dissident writer, said surveillance cameras installed at a Guangzhou City metro station detected his movements and alerted police to his presence. Police approached him and said that he was on the Ministry of Public Security’s wanted list for “gathering a crowd to disrupt social order.” He was then taken to a local detention center.

    Might actually be a good thing to crackdown on these communist teachers indoctrinating students, the corporate dems in charge right now are really cracking down on the far left.

    They did that in another communist country. They did it under the guise of having the teachers' backs if claims were made against them.
    It was used to watch teachers remotely. Fly on the wall type chit.
    It won't be long until some teachers and older students (university) are disappeared.
