Open Rights Group are holding events at the Party Conferences and we are running one in Brighton alongside the Labour Party Conference!
The Government is expected to announce new surveillance legislation next month, the Investigatory Powers Bill, that is almost certain to increase surveillance powers, threatening our privacy once again.
Open Rights Group are busy preparing to fight back as part of Don’t Spy On Us, a coalition of organisations defending free speech, privacy and digital rights.
We want to make sure as many people as possible can get involved in the campaign.
So we are running the training session ‘How To Think Like a Campaigner’ with the Campaign Director of Don’t Spy On Us, Mike Harris.
Learn how to campaign like a professional with insider advice from the Director of the most influential surveillance campaigns in the UK. Among others, Mike has worked on the Libel Reform campaign which secured the passage of the Defamation Act in 2012.
7.00 - 7.30pm - Thinking Like A Campaigner with Mike Harris
Understand the strategy to fight against increasing surveillance and by looking at previous campaign victories, find out how we can win one today.
7.30 - 8.30pm - Campaigning Against Surveillance
Get involved with planning the strategy for the rest of the campaign by creating your own winning campaign action.
Entry is free and open to the public.
See you there,
