Aus der Einladung:

Mobilize! is an event format which brings together international activists on focal topics and combines bar camp style work sessions, political round tables with classic public event formats, as well as combining political and sociological with approaches from performing and fine arts. The core idea of Mobilize! is bringing together activists from different cultural and political contexts to discuss and work on topics of joint interest and thus support the building of international activist communities, support the creation of joint actions, the building of long term partnerships and collaboration. This Mobilize! event will focus on an issue which has dominated the international press and has far reaching consequences for politically active people across the world – the issue of privacy and surveillance.

The revelations around the NSA and GCHQ as well as other countries secret service digital surveillance activities have spurred political debate. This debate will be intensified at the Mobilize! event, giving space to formulate political demands, action strategies and debate questions such as: What cultural and political value does privacy have today? What are the societal implications of the wide spread “I have nothing to hide” attitude and the voluntary forfeiting of the right to anonymity through private and public data collection? How is exercising the right to private communication possible in a state of total surveillance of online and telephone communication? What political actions are necessary to protect citizens from mass surveillance and what tools exist for people to secure their online communication?

From 5th to 8th of december 2013The event will bring together activists from different regions engaged in civil society organizations and give them the opportunity to meet, discuss experience and exchange ideas. On the 6th and 7th of december „Whatever happened to privacy?“ goes public and opens to an interested audience.
