RealMe, New Zealand's Biometric Identification System in The Global ID Rollout


Today it was announced that the Auckland City Council is building a city wide surveillance camera network that will likely have inbuilt facial recognition sofware to track and monitor the public as they go about their business. It is being described as the forerunner to a nationwide system.

An agreement between the Auckland City Council and the Police mentions rapidly evolving technology "including face recognition and licence plate recognition", adding that the council "itself might also look at enhanced technologies".

openUReyes has been passed some information on how the government is going to collect the biometric data for the facial recognition system. A national identification system is currently being rolled out that is called RealMe. Launched last year, RealMe is a partnership between the New Zealand government and New Zealand Post. Using biometric verification technology it boasts world-first capability in identity verification. It came about and as a result of AML/CFT, created after the 9/11 attack.

RealMe has a non verified and verified account status. Verified will require you to go into NZ Post and have a biometric I.D. photo taken.

Once they have that, you are in the net and there is no escape. The data is owned and controlled by the Government. It is shared globally.

In the early days it said RealMe was voluntary on the website. They have removed that since. At this point a verified account is voluntary. That is about to change. Anyone with a limited liability company has a RealMe account set up automatically by the Government. Anyone wanting to deal with the Government will have a RealMe account. This currently includes passport applications and applications for student loans and allowances. It will include the IRD, WINZ, driver licensing and the big banks are now pushing it.

The government also announced today that the next census will be done online. You will need a RealMe account and ID for filling out your census form.

RealMe is no different to the REAL ID system being rolled out in America, the names are almost identical.

According to information I have been given about this, the same crowd that created the UIDAI in India are behind RealMe. (Over 90% of the indian population has a biometric I.D in that system - they sold it as verifying you so the Indian public could vote!) SEE HERE: http://uidai.gov.in/

Some of the groups involved in setting this system up include:

Egmont Group: http://www.egmontgroup.org/

FATF: http://www.fatf-gafi.org/

Other laws and systems connected to this system include:

AML/CFT : http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2009/0035/latest/DLM2140720.html

Financial Intelligence Units (globally) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_intelligence

GoAML: https://fiu.police.govt.nz/prd/default.aspx

It is all linked. If you are involved in a financial transaction that is deemed 'suspicious' or 'unusual' it is automatically entered into the U.N. controlled system called GoAML. Your bank is required to do it by law and any financial service provider you deal with has to as well. They don't tell you this. If you have a bank account, your bank has been required to do an AML/CFT assessment of you.

I intend to publish more about this soon. Todays public announcement of an intended national roll out of a biometric surveillance system made this article giving some background information on the stealthy ways in which this system is being built and the way in which the New Zealand public is being railroaded into it neccesary.

Incidentally, the New York Times reports: Never Forgetting a Face: Face-recognition pioneer warns of exploitation. Now an industry consultant, Dr. Atick finds himself in a delicate position. While promoting and profiting from an industry that he helped foster, he also feels compelled to caution against its unfettered proliferation. He isn’t so much concerned about government agencies that use face recognition openly for specific purposes — for example, the many state motor vehicle departments that scan drivers’ faces as a way to prevent license duplications and fraud. Rather, what troubles him is the potential exploitation of face recognition to identify ordinary and unwitting citizens as they go about their lives in public. Online, we are all tracked. But to Dr. Atick, the street remains a haven, and he frets that he may have abetted a technology that could upend the social order.

Face-matching today could enable mass surveillance, “basically robbing everyone of their anonymity,” he says, and inhibit people’s normal behavior outside their homes. Pointing to the intelligence documents made public by Edward J. Snowden, he adds that once companies amass consumers’ facial data, government agencies might obtain access to it, too.
