Just in time for Halloween, October 26th marked the largest anticipated national rally against mass surveillance. It’s only fitting because it’s horrifying how the National Security Agency is tracking our phone calls and monitoring our online activity — often with the help of telecom & media companies. What’s really scary is how long government surveillance has been targeting people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ communities, the working poor & organizers.
On this October Digital Dialogue, we had a spirited discussion with digital privacy experts and organizers as they unmask the dangers of digital surveillance for our communities. They shared organizing strategies and ways to fight back to protect our online digital rights and Internet freedom.
