ORG London: Digital rights in the courts in 2018

ORG Legal Director Myles Jackman joins us at Newspeak House to illustrate the critical importance of legal action in the fight to defend our digital rights. Learn about ORG’s record of achievements at the European Court of Human Rights, the Court of Justice of the European Union, and the Royal Court of Justice in London. We’ll also survey fast approaching legal challenges in 2018 involving age-verification technology, protecting free speech online, and fighting the Government’s mass surveillance programme. No experience or knowledge is necessary for this FREE event! All you need is an interest in protecting our human rights in the digital era. We want to hear from you, so there will be plenty of time for questions and group discussion. Join us!
