One Nation Under CCTV was a 2007 mural by graffiti artist Banksy on Newman Street in London. Painted on the wall of a building used by the Royal Mail, it depicts a child in a red hooded top painting the phrase, while being watched by a police officer and a dog. The mural was situated adjacent to a CCTV camera. No longer there as of 2021 as a building has been built against the wall

In 2008, the Westminster City Council ordered the work's removal[1] on the grounds that it was an unlicensed commercial.[2]
