Democracy, social movements, our relationships, and your own well being all require private space to thrive. But state actors and law enforcement reach for persistent mass surveillance tech with disturbing frequency. Privacy activists and ordinary people around the world stand before a growing arsenal of invasive tools in the hands of criminals and state actors alike. Our guests will discuss how mass surveillance changed us and our odds of fighting back.
