New York spends $75 million to surveil pro-Palestinian protesters


New York state governor Kathy Hochul has announced $75 million in additional funding for surveillance technology and staff to be used to target pro-Palestinian protesters and activists, describing the move as fighting anti-semitism. The news came a day after the Biden administration announced new support for campus surveillance programmes. Hochul also provided for a judge to review policies and procedures relating to antisemitism at City University of New York - but not Islamophobia.
