Lauri Love with Monique Mann
INTERNET ACTIVIST / HACKTIVIST + TECH / RIGHTS RESEARCHER / SCHOLACTIVIST
Fighting back against internet apathy, privacy nihilism and the Government

Join Dr Monique Mann in conversation with Lauri Love about all the terrible things that governments around the world are doing for internet freedom and privacy, with a focus on the ridiculous #waronmaths in Australia and across the Five Eyes alliance more broadly. We will talk through the options of what we can realistically do about it as scholactivists and hacktivists, and drawing from Love’s recent success fighting extradition and 99 years in a US prison, how to fight back against internet apathy, privacy nihilism and the government.

Transparency, censorship, and abuse: regulating the web

Internet companies play a massive role in regulating what we can post and see online. There are constant pressures on them to do more to promote privacy and freedom of speech, but also to help tackle violence, abuse, and extremism online. This talk considers how we should protect human rights online, and what this means for technology companies and civil society.
