Privacy, Surveillance and Secure Internet Access: Planning the Fight

Discussion workshop
Aug 12 2016  13:00 - 15:30

The almost complete destruction of privacy as a human right, coupled with severe surveillance and data confiscation has now become a major issue for social justice and revolutionary movements. For us, privacy is not about hiding personal details but about protecting our movements from disruption and repression. How do we reclaim our privacy and push back surveillance and what opportunities for broader organizing do such struggles provide? This panel and audience interaction will feature Internet activists from all over the world in person and remotely — in a conversation with attendees.
