CAMPAIGN: EYES ON INTERNET SHUTDOWNS

We’re keeping our #EyesOnShutdowns because internet shutdowns undermine the right to record and enable escalations of human rights violations. We’ve learned from activists facing shutdowns all over the world on how you can still capture and share footage of abuse and other files during periods without internet access. The resources we created from these learnings are essential to review, share, and practice before a crisis situation.

DEEPFAKERY: A LIVESTREAM TALK SERIES

Deepfakery is a series of critical conversations exploring the intersection of satire, art, human rights, disinformation, and journalism. Join WITNESS and the Co-Creation Studio at MIT Open Documentary Lab for interdisciplinary discussions with leading artists, activists, academics, film-makers and journalists.
