Challenging Secrecy and Surveillance: Building Anti-Surveillance Activism

Title: Challenging Secrecy and Surveillance: Building Anti-Surveillance Activism
Speaker: Alex Hotz
Date: Friday 19 August 2016
Time: 12:30-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room 602, 6th Floor, MTB Tower, Howard College, University of KwaZulu-Natal

This seminar considers how state security structures have become increasingly involved in politics and public life. It draws from student activism on university campuses including the RhodesMustFall and FeesMustFall campaigns. It also examines the extent to which there is evidence of abuse of the state's surveillance capabilities.
