Newham Monitoring Project recently took part in a debate surrounding the issue of an increased CCTV presence in Newham. The debate featured in The Newham Recorder’s weekly ‘Big Debate’ piece. Tahmeena Bax, a volunteer for NMP discusses the civil liberty implications of an increase in surveillance, and ask whether the benefits outweigh the risks. Mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman on the other side argues his case for the increase.
