Could new plans to make Britain "the safest place in the world to be online" have unintended consequences?

Hear from campaigns manager Mike Morel, legal officer Alex Haydock, and organiser Deepika Gudavalli about how the Government is pressuring social media companies to police speech online. Learn how heavy fines compel the roll out of not-so-smart filters that can silence free speech, and how murky definitions of 'harmful content' give social media companies unprecedented control over free expression.

No experience is necessary to attend this FREE event. All are welcome, please join us!
