Surveillance Self Defense Workshop Event Description:

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.

You can listen to the panel discussion here

No registration is necessary. You can join the workshop by going to 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.

History of the Fourth Ammendment Event Description:

246 years ago in Colonial Boston, Daniel Malcom stood his ground and prevented British authorities from searching his property.

This was just one of the many instances in colonial America where agents of the British Crown would break down doors and interrogate residents, day or night, in an overzealous attempt to crack down on smuggling of tea and sugar. As helpfully and somewhat ironically highlighted by a .gov website:

Few provisions of the Bill of Rights grew so directly out of the experience of the colonials as the Fourth Amendment, embodying as it did the protection against the use of the “writs of assistance.”

But Danile Malcolm Held his ground, and eventually a crowd  of Boston citizens supportive of Malcolm gathered around the house, and the British officials where forced to back down.

Join us on the anniversary of this miner yet momentous occasion to learn about the history of the fourth amendment and the parallels between British General Warrants and the pervasive general surveillance we are all subject to.
