International Action Day

8th June - 1984 Action Day
8th June is the anniversary of the publication of George Orwell's novel '1984'. The date will be marked by protests against CCTV cameras and other surveillance, by groups from around the world. George Orwell described his book as an illustration: "of the perversions to which a centralized economy is liable and which have already been partly realized in Communism and Fascism. I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe (allowing of course for the fact that the book is a satire) that something resembling it could arrive. I believe also that totalitarian ideas have taken root in the minds of intellectuals everywhere, and I have tried to draw these ideas out to their logical consequences." As society continues towards the "logical consequences" of which Orwell warned, campaigners will be asking: "When will you fight back?"
It is hoped that 1984 Action Day will be an annual event - it came about after a meeting of campaigners opposed to surveillance cameras at the Freedom Not Fear event in Brussels in September 2011.
