Richard Stallman - "Are we facing surveillance like in China?" (Frankfurt, Germany)

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Jun 18, 2019 04:09 AM
Frankfurt am Main, Germany
When Jul 15, 2019

from 07:30 PM to 10:00 PM
Where Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Digital technology has enabled governments to impose surveillance that Stalin could only dream of, making it next to impossible to talk with a reporter (or do most things) unmonitored. This puts democracy and human rights in danger, as illustrated by the totalitarian regime of China today.

Stallman will present the absolute upper limit on surveillance of the public compatible with democracy, and present ways to design systems that don't collect dossiers on people, except those designated by courts based on valid specific suspicion of crime.

This speech by Richard Stallman will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.

Location: Festsaal, Casino (#7), Campus Westend, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universit√§t Frankfurt am Main, Gr√ľneburgplatz 1, 60323 Frankfurt
