Blocked: your digital rights and how they’re under threat

NetBlocks and Impact Hub present an interactive discussion on the state of the internet and digital rights. The first part of the evening will be a fast-track introduction to your digital rights, answering the big questions: What is internet freedom and online censorship? Why does this matter? Following which, a short simulation will be done to show what happens when the internet gets shut down and how NetBlocks has built technology to track censorship in near real time. We will round out the event with an all-female panel of politicians, activists and developers to debate what your digital rights are and how they’re under threat.
