As most who live in or visit Lisbon and most southern European cities will know from experience, there exists an eagle-eyed population of women who spend their days keeping watch over the street outside their window, one phone call away from reporting any wayward activity to the police -- in effect, functioning as an alternate version of CCTV in these neighbourhoods. The signs that Collective CC has secretively placed beneath these women's windows is a perfect copy of the omnipresent Securitas security/CCTV company visual identity.
