Please join us at the launch of Open Rights Group Leeds!
We formed in response to the continued erosion of our rights to privacy and freedom of expression, through legislation such as the Investigatory Powers Act and the proposed Digital Economy Bill.
To get things started we will be discussing the current state of digital rights, the challenges ahead and what we can do as a group to make a difference. We would love to hear about your ideas, so please come along with plenty if you can!
To set the scene beforehand we will be showing the excellent short documentary 'The Haystack' by Scenes of Reason, a real life investigation into 21st century surveillance in the UK.
Ed Johnson-Williams, ORG's Campaigner, will be at the event to help provide an overview of some of the free tools that you can use to protect your privacy. This will be a taster for the privacy workshops that we intend to run in the near future.
Event details, timings etc:
The event will be in the upstairs function room, we will ask if we can put up signs, but please ask at the bar if you need pointing in the right direction.
We will be showing the documentary from 18:30, so please arrive from about 18:15 onwards so that you have time to get a drink etc.
After a quick break at around 19:15 we will move onto the talks and discussion, which will last about an hour. We have the function room until 21:00, but we can continue the discussion in the bar for those who would like to join us.
Unfortunately we will not be providing food, so please grab something beforehand if you require or check out the Adelphi's menu here.
It would be great if you could join us. We will miss our civil liberties when they are gone, so lets not let that happen and make 2017 the year we stand up and make our voices heard.
