Surveillance: Defense, Offense, and Why Nothing Less than Democracy is at Stake

Shahid Buttar
Director of Grassroots Advocacy, Electronic Frontiers Foundation (EFF)

Thursday, February 23, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Hall Building, Room 102

The incoming administration has inherited the most expansive and omniscient surveillance tools ever developed by humankind.  We'll explore how street level surveillance extends the dragnet revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden to threaten not only your privacy but also our democracy.

We'll discuss the history of the deep state, the emergence of mass surveillance, and how concerned students can breathe new life into constitutional rights withering under the assault of government and technology.

This event is free and open to the public.
