A look at how the demonstrators dressed for their face-scanning protest. So a digital rights group highlighted that point by scanning people's faces in busy sections of Washington, DC, on Thursday. The digital rights group Fight for the Future planned this attention-grabbing stunt as part of its campaign to get facial recognition technology banned. Three activists from the group wore hooded white jumpsuits with yellow signs saying "Facial recognition in progress" on the front. They also had headgear equipped with phones that ran Amazon's Rekognition facial recognition technology.
