To date, Scrap the Scanners is the only single-issue group dedicated to the abolishion of Full-Body Scanning (FBS) for security processes.
Since the introduction of FBS as a compulsory screening process of commercial air passengers at UK airports and the global ramp-up of scanning at airports worldwide, Scrap the Scanners, alongside its partners (Big Brother Watch in the UK and the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) in the US) has worked tirelessly to investigate, petition governments and broaden public debate on use of the scanners.
The Scrap the Scanners group draws upon a broad spectrum of collaborators , from human rights activists, lawyers, scientists, journalists and artists to everyday people who have been affected, and often traumatised, by this Draconian measure.
The scanners are enormously ineffective, breach numerous human rights declarations, break privacy laws and are harmful to the health of both those scanned and those operating the machines.
