Discussion: The Topography of Oppression Online


How does oppression on the ground transcend into the online world? From the proliferation of surveillance tech to online censorship of grassroots activists and marginalised communities, this conversation delves into the topography of oppression and violence online, from Palestine to Afghanistan, Russia, Belarus and other parts of Europe, looking at social-media platforms, the role of big tech in moderating and restricting political narratives, Pegasus spyware and more. What is the future of the Internet we need to claim and defend? Participants include Marwa Fatafta, Eliška Pírková and Natalia Krapiva, all working for Access Now, a non-profit defending and extending people’s digital rights all around the world. This discussion takes place online, but will be streamed for a live audience, who can ask questions.
