Workshop: Online Anonymity and Security for Activists

Hosted by Indigenous Solidarity Working Group and Social Environmental Alliance - SEA

In light of recent high-profile data breach scandals worldwide, join the activist community for this unique and timely workshop dedicated to digital security issues!

Throughout the evening, we will be considering the current situation within the larger frameworks of neoliberalism, corporatocracy, state surveillance vs private surveillance, power/knowledge, plus "Know your Rights."

  • Part 1: An introduction to protecting yourself, your information, and your privacy online.
  • Part 2: Build on the way we have looked at our browsing and internet security by focusing on the smart phone as a weak point for anonymity, especially as an activist.
  • Part 3: Suggest tactics and angles that activists can use/employ to increase their anonymity, and to posting anonymously to boards and sharing information with friends/allies.
  • Part 4: Tie in the idea of net security into why we are doing what we are doing in the first place, and why it is important to factor net security into what we do.

Where We Stand

1. People and the planet before profit.
The Social Environmental Alliance is committed to a world where the wellbeing of people and the planet takes priority over the accumulation of private wealth.
2. Respect for ecological systems.
We believe all human activity and social systems must operate within the limits imposed by ecological systems and with respect for non-human life.
3. Transformative social change.
Recognizing the dangers of catastrophic climate change, the injustice of colonization and imperialism, and the inhumanity of growing poverty in the midst of plenty, we pledge ourselves to the lifelong project of transformative social change.
4. Ecological and democratic socialist principles.
We aim to accomplish our objectives through the application of ecological and democratic socialist principles to public affairs and the governance of our communities.
5. Grassroots organization and action.
Committed to action and outreach, we are nurturing a community of organizers to mobilize the consciousness and confidence of ordinary people and forge alliances in coalition with social movements, cultural organizations and grassroots community groups.
6. Traditions inform practice.
We are guided by the best traditions of indigenous, feminist, co-operative, socialist, labour and environmental movements.
7. Democracy.
We embrace a participatory, pluralistic and emancipatory model of democracy.
8. Equality.
We believe in a classless society and in the inherent dignity and equality of all people on the basis of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, age and ability.
9. Self-determination.
We recognize the right of indigenous and colonized peoples to self-determination.
10. Internationalism.
We embrace an internationalist perspective in foreign policy based on equality among peoples and the shared stewardship and fair distribution of the finite resources of the planet.
