Safe Identities?

People, place and identity

The next GG action is planned for Saturday 24th January, to coincide with ‘Engaging Geography’ (see ). It will take place in Newcastle-upon-Tyne city centre, 3-5pm … details of meeting point will be posted nearer the time.

This event is intended to raise questions and promote debate around the introduction of identity cards in the UK, and their impact on people’s everyday geographies. Members of the public will be offered ‘free identity cards’: one side listing some of the information that will be included on the cards, to invite the public to think about the implications of this (eg. going to a ‘biometric enrolment centre’ to be fingerprinted); the other side listing some broader questions/issues around space, place, citizenship …eg "Can you trust the government of 20 years from now?"

Please come and join us, whether you want to come to some or all of the engaging geography event (at the Star and Shadow cinema in Newcastle) or not …

RSVP in the Guerrilla Geography Facebook group.
