Our right to protest and the impact on national use of biometric scanners

The Racial Justice Network and Yorkshire Resist, in conjunction with Queen Mary University, are planning a collective conversation event for the launch of our most recent report analysing national FOI data on the biometric fingerprinting device.

The speakers will be followed by a moderated question and answer section.
