Teach-in: Examining Surveillance As A Tool of Empire
July 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Washington Peace Center is excited to host a teach-in on surveillance and how it has been used as a tool of repressing movements that resist empire. We will hear from Thenmozhi Soundararajan, founder of Equality Labs and Netfa Freeman on how surveillance has been used historically to repress communities and ways communities have resisted surveillance throughout history. We will also cover some concrete tools that can be used to protect our movements under the repressive Trump administration.
