RE:  Tell Amazon not to sell a mass surveillance system to governments

Amazon is offering powerful facial recognition technology to governments. This technology, Rekognition, will enable an unprecedented level of mass surveillance to threaten civil rights and civil liberties, particularly for vulnerable communities. This powerful technology can enable governments to chill participation in public protest, target those deemed a threat (such as undocumented immigrants or Black Lives Matter activists), or simply monitor people as they go about their daily lives, even those suspected of no  criminal activity. Demand that Amazon stand up for civil liberties and stop selling Rekognition to governments.
