Digital Activism and Antifa: Panel Discussion and Cryptoparty

February 14, 2018

March 24, 4pm – 6 pm
The resistance movement to fascism and white supremacy is diverse and creative, adapting to increasing threat and propaganda in the digital world.  On March 24, 2018, Interference Archive will host a panel discussion exploring the resistance to fascism and white supremacy, followed by a Cryptoparty, for a hands-on workshop to learn more about the projects discussed.
Groups joining us have developed tools that challenge white supremacy with projects that identify and remove online propaganda and through skillshares to enable us to protect ourselves.  Our first hour will be a panel discussion and Q&A.  This will be followed by the Cryptoparty, where we will split into small groups to work with panelists regarding their projects.  Feel free to bring your own laptop!
Cutealism: it’s like brutalism, but cute af. It’s an art collaboration with a political bent aiming to make political ideas, action and practice aggressively inviting.
CyPurr Collective is a group of some tech-minded folks who are very jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping folks out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and everyday folks who want to up their encryption game!
Nemesis is a project to use visual machine learning to identify emerging use of white nationalist symbolism in social postings and track networks sharing them.
No Platform for Fascism is a MACC working group focused on countering the spread of white nationalist and fascist ideologies by denying them a platform. In pursuit of this goal, we have developed a browser extension to crowd source reporting on fascist YouTube videos.
