Activism, surveillance and digital security awareness

Last year, activists across the world raised concerns about the use of AI facial recognition technology to intimidate and stifle protest. Such use is only the latest in a well-documented encroachment on citizens’ ability to freely protest.

Join Melbourne Activist Legal Support for a panel discussion about the surveillance technologies being used, who is using them, what the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities says about them, and why we should care.

Hear from activists, along with experts in digital security, technical surveillance tools and human rights, and join in a Q&A.

Presented by Melbourne Activist Legal Support
