BayFF on August 3: Iranian Protests and Digital Media

Update: Archive of the event is here, and photos are here.

Iranians protesting the results of the recent election found an outlet and a means of organizing with the Internet, and showed that new digital media can help free speech and fight repression globally. But what happens now the headlines and the Twitter trends have died down?

If you're in the California Bay Area, join us in San Francisco's PariSoMa on Monday, August 3, from 7pm - 9pm as we discuss the lessons of Iran and other global protests, what's happening now, and how to make the digital media we create serve netizens in authoritarian regimes.

Panelists include Cyrus Farivar, journalist author of the forthcoming "The Internet of Elsewhere", Net activist in the Iranian protests Austin Heap, and EFF's International Outreach Coordinator, Danny O'Brien.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to events@eff.org. $20 admission; no one turned away for lack of funds. Secure your spot by purchasing tickets online. For more details, see our online calendar.
