Technology is becoming key to organising actions, events and movement building. As part of using these powerful tools, we are putting more information, communications and data online than ever before.
Meanwhile, the Australian government is introducing laws to retain our data, and spending more money and resources on increasingly invasive spying techniques, together with data surveillance and filtering.
Discussion will focus on concepts and solutions to make your organising more private and secure. Aimed at beginners and relevant to experts.
There are ways to secure yourself and your groups. Let us show you how.
