Taking lessons from our panel discussion on Protesting in the Age of Mass surveillance, this workshop is an opportunity for activists on the ground to receive personalized attention from security experts and protest veterans. Attendees can expect to walk through the steps they can take before, during, and after a protest that will help maximize their data security while still being effective.
No registration is necessary. You can join the workshop by hopping on https://cafe.cyberia.club/SurveillanceSelfDefense
Attendees should come prepared with their personal cell phone if they plan on bringing it with them to protest. This workshop should only last an hour or so, but we set aside 2 hours to account for questions and troubleshooting.
In keeping with our values on privacy and data sovereignty, for this event we will be using Free and Open Source software (Jitsi) which respects your privacy and runs on hardware owned and under the physical control of our friends at https://cyberia.club, a friendly Minnesota hacker collective.
