Concerned about online security culture? Worried about your privacy and
anonymity as an activist? Curious about the technical aspects of
government surveillance of the internet? This second workshop in our

security mindset and understanding the big picture of keeping secrets
secret.

This event is free and open to the public and no technical background is

this one.  Please buy and enjoy the fair trade coffees and peruse the
