Fighting for the Pillars of Democracy: Independent Media and an Open Internet

October 21, 2017 - 2:45pm
Bioneers, San Rafael

Authoritarian regimes around the world are cracking down on journalists and trying to exert complete control over the flow of information. Now we too are facing a government hostile to any narratives it doesn't approve of sanction, as well as confronting giant media monopolies and online gatekeepers. How do we fight for "net neutrality," prevent the complete consolidation of a "surveillance society" and strengthen our independent media, without which democracy cannot survive? With: Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman; Cory Doctorow, author/digital activist; Danny O'Brien, International Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Moderated by Joshua Fouts, Bioneers Executive Director.
