EFF and ACLU of Northern California sued the City and County of San Francisco in October 2020 on behalf of three activists of color for violating the city’s landmark Surveillance Technology Ordinance, which prohibits city departments from using surveillance technology without first putting it before the board of supervisors, who would have to pass an ordinance allowing it. The SFPD flouted a law meant to bring democratic control over government access to privacy-intrusive camera networks that can be used, as they were here, to spy on people exercising their First Amendment right to protest.

democratic control?

EFF uncovered evidence showing the SFPD broke the law when it obtained and used a business district’s network of more than 300 video surveillance cameras to conduct remote, live surveillance of Black-led protests for eight days in May and June 2020 without supervisors’ approval. Demonstrators marched through San Francisco’s Union Square business and shopping district to protest Floyd’s murder and racist police violence.

At a hearing scheduled for Jan. 14 that will be livestreamed for public viewing, EFF Staff Attorney Saira Hussain will tell the court that the evidence supports a judgment, without trial, against the SFPD and in favor of plaintiffs Hope Williams, Nathan Sheard, and Nestor Reyes. They are Black and Latinx activists who participated in and organized numerous protests that crisscrossed San Francisco in 2020.
