Sukey - A tool for non-violent demonstrations
Sukey is a smartphone app platform providng realtime information gathering (via the swiftriver social media intelligence and analysis engine) and dissemination via multiple channels such as tweets and SMS, in an attempt to provide protesters with realtime mapping and intelligence of riot police movements. Fundamentally designed to provide a means of defeating kettling, a riot police tactic employed by the London Metropolitan police that confines any large mass of people (protesters and spectators included) in a tight cordon and effectively incites them to riot, providing a justification for a brutal beatdown.
