  • Legal Observer Training

  • Activist Legal Support Training
  • Digital Security
  • Talk
  • Workshop

These practical events provide a technical support forum for conversations around Open Source tools and strategies to help protect activists and activist groups from increasingly intrusive digital surveillance by police. How do I encrypt my e-mail? Why is Facebook harmful for organising? How do the police use surveillance as a tool of repression and intimidation? How can we push back? Bring your devices, for hands-on practical experiences. Related topics can sometimes include security culture in general, encrypted communications techniques, data awareness online and offline, privacy as a concept but also as a legal right, and specific anti-surveillance communication techniques and tools.

These practical workshops teach fundamental Legal Observing skills. Legal Observers play a crucial role monitoring and reporting on police behaviour at protest events, and protecting and asserting civil and political rights. Learn about police tactics and human rights obligations, what to look out for at protest events, and how to best record evidence of police misconduct.
