Discussing Digital Rights and TTIP

EFF - FlickrOn 19th June 2015, co-founder Miguelángel Verde Garrido will talk at the opening debate and cryptoparty for European Alternatives’ Create|React: Digital workshop at c-base, Berlin, Germany.

Sharing a panel with Professor Daniele Archibugi (Italian National Research Council, University of London, Birkbeck College), Miguel will talk about untransparency and lack of civil society’s participation in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations, and how these treaties forego privacy in favor of more global trade. Prof. Archibugi will talk about the history of political secrecy in government institutions and the disclosure of political secrets when these are clearly against the interest of the citizens.

Frederike Kaltheuner (Centre for Internet and Human Rights), Maria Xynou (Tactical Tech), and Hauke Gierow (Reporters Without Borders) will talk about why we should care and how to engage in activism in an age of ubiquitous surveillance as well as why this particular struggle is an issue of citizenship.
