Policy people, techies, activists, and academics at big companies, startups, universities, libraries, NGO’s, foundations, civil society (and more), are all invited for this collaborative discussion.
The first hour is devoted to our guest speakers Jim Killock from Open Rights Group, Caroline Wilson Palow from Privacy International, and moderator is Mozilla’s own Raegan MacDonald. The second hour is a Q&A and an open format discussion amongst people who may not often get the opportunity to get together.
This week saw the UK Parliament majority (444 vs 69) passing the Investigative Powers Bill, also known as the #IPbill or #SnoopersCharter. The House of Lords is the final barrier to this bill becoming UK law. Check out the excellent documentary The Haystack which provides a great resource for understanding its effects.
This timely event will no doubt feature quite a lot of voices across the spectrum on the issue and we’d love to have yours!
