Join us at ORGCon 2017 (November 4-5, 2017) and help the Digital Fightback begin
ORGCon, the UK’s biggest digital rights conference, is back for the fifth time and this year is going to be the biggest one yet!
In the last year, the UK has passed laws that allow the extensive surveillance of our online activity, and that could see the nation's porn habits recorded. Google, Facebook, Amazon and other major corporations continue to come up with new ways to get hold of our data and make money out of it. Extremists are using the Internet to spread both propaganda and fake news, and online abuse has pervaded our political discourse.
ORGCon 2017 will bring together expert writers, lawyers, academics and technologists to discuss these threats and how we can fight back against those who want to undermine our human rights. Confirmed speakers include: Jamie Bartlett, Pandora Blake, Nighat Dad, Myles Jackman, Helen Lewis, Graham Lineham, Nanjira Sambuli, Noel Sharkey, and Audrey Tang.
The topics up for discussion include killer robots, dystopian surveillance trends and how extremists are using the Internet. We'll look at how are the online rights of people of colour, women, and other marginalised groups being disproportionately affected by regressive laws and online abuse. But we'll also be talking about how the Internet has changed politics and campaigning for the good, and how we can harness this to give ordinary citizens a voice, and help to hold the powerful to account. Join us, and let the fightback begin!
