A collage of British prime minister Gordon Brown made out of hundreds of pictures taken with the ubiquitous government surveillance cameras known as CCTV was unveiled today in London's Parliament Square.

The event, which was called 'Freedom, not Fear: The Big Picture,' was patronized by a human rights organization called ORG/No2ID as a form of protest against the British government's camera surveillance program.

Implications - The photo was quite large and very impressive! It looks like a lot of hard work went into creating it. The ORG/No2ID organization believes that the message they delivered was perfectly clear. They say that "these creeping changes constitute a wholesale shift towards a society predicated not on freedom, but on fear." Stats for Surveillance Protest Art Trending: Older & Chilly
