FavoriteLoading Video merken

What happens when the forces of government surveillance are confronted by the combined power of the world’s most renowned technologists, whistleblowers and privacy activists? Answer: meltdown!

On Monday 20th April, c-base will host the launch of this very initiative. Code Red involves such figures as Tor’s Jacob Appelbaum, former NSA technical director William Binney, crypto pioneer Whitfield Diffie, security guru Bruce Schneier along with a spectrum of influential activists from US presidential candidates to hard-core privacy campaigners in fifteen countries.

Led by Simon Davies – father of the international privacy activist movement, and Annie Machon – former MI5 intelligence officer turned whistleblower, Code Red aims to raise the heat on resistance to the surveillance state. It will be a strategic think-tank, clearing house and network hub for technologists and activists across the world. In this event, Davies and Machon will outline their plans and set out Code Red’s program for the coming year.
