Protesters in Hong Kong are cutting down alleged facial recognition towers
September 12, 2019 - Thursday 1:09 PM by MDM
A video shows Hong Kong protesters destroying a “smart” lamppost.
Protesters believe these towers are equipped with facial recognition software.
In the footage, the lamppost is shown to be cut with an electric saw before protesters topple it to the ground.
Protesters proceed to pour liquid into the alleged facial recognition lamppost to ensure it no longer works.
Local authorities claim that these lampposts, which are equipped with cameras and sensors, are only collecting data on air quality, weather, and traffic, but the protesters believe otherwise.
