RSVP Now! You Are Invited to MAG-Net's April Digital Dialogue Phonecast:
"Why Should Our Communities Care about Internet Privacy? Open Source and Other Alternatives "
Wed, April 25th: A Special Digital Dialogue & Webinar - 10am PST/1pm EST
Just last week, on April 18th, the FBI seized servers
from a colocation facility shared by Riseup Networks and May First/People Link in NYC. The seized server was operated by the ECN, the oldest independent internet service provider in Europe.
This is a vital issue that affects all who use and rely on the Internet to organize, to find a job, to apply for college, and for civil engagement. Join this digital dialogue, featuring long time media justice and open source activists from May First/People Link, a politically progressive member-run and controlled organization that redefines the concept of "Internet Service Provider" in a collective way. MFPL members are organizers and activists. We will hear why these privacy and tracking issues are so important. Guest speakers will shed light on ways we can protect our privacy on-line and introduce alternatives in the growing free software movement.
* Consumers Union will host an event "“Facebook and Your Privacy: What every Consumer Should Know” on Thursday, May 3rd from 6-8:45pm at New York University in NYC. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
