Austin, TX

EFF-Austin, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Mexican Surveillance at the Border 

From the Organizers:

There's a lot of coverage in the media about surveillance on the U.S. side of the border, but what about the Mexico side? Dave Maass will share what EFF has learned about the various surveillance command centers in Mexico and how they communicate with U.S. law enforcement. The talk will also cover the Plataforma Centinela, a new surveillance network that will be run out of a 20-story tower in Ciudad Juarez, and its connection to Texas's efforts to patrol and control the border.

Our speaker this month is Dave Maass. Dave is the director of investigations at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. As investigations director, Dave researches and writes about surveillance technology, government transparency, press freedoms, the U.S.-Mexico border and immigration enforcement, prisoner rights, and other digital rights issues. He leads the Atlas of Surveillance project in partnership with the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, where he is a Reynolds Scholar in Residence.
Talk will be livestreamed at https://www.youtube.com/user/austintechlive and will later be archived at https://www.youtube.com/user/effaustin. Questions for the speaker from virtual attendees may be submitted via the Youtube livestream chat, our Twitter account, @EFFaustin, or our Mastodon account, @effaustin.
