Details

Join us on Tuesday 12 February at 6.45 pm (note date and start time) for a presentation on Existing Forms of UK Censorship by ORG Campaigns Manager Mike Morel. We’ll review ORG’s new Report on UK Internet Regulation https://www.openrightsgroup.org/about/reports/uk-internet-regulation which details formal and informal web blocking practices (AKA censorship) in the UK, as well as other threats to digital free expression on the horizon.

We’ll also review ORG’s activities on Age Verification Technology, Brexit and digital rights and the status of ORG’s legal challenge to the Data Protection Act.

‘Healthy Digital Lifestyle’ training in March for friends/family members/colleagues

After Mike’s presentation and the review of AV, etc, we’ll be planning for this training, using Charles’ notes from our last meeting as a basis for discussion https://www.openrightsgroup.org/assets/files/pdfs/ORG_Mini_Crypto_Party_Notes.pdf

The meeting will be at Neontribe, 21 Colegate, Norwich NR3 1BN (corner entrance, press buzzer).

Looking forward to seeing you on 12 February – it’s a FREE event to which all are welcome. You may want to bring your laptop, tablet, etc.
