Launch event at AIDC Solidarity Centre, Cape Town
Aziz Choudry, activist and Canada Research Chair in Social Movement Learning and Knowledge Production at McGill University, will be speaking to issues covered in the upcoming book Activists and the Surveillance State that he has edited. The book documents experiences around the world of the surveillance, harassment and infiltration that pervades the lives of activists, organisations and movements that are labelled as ‘threats to national security’.
Murray Hunter, R2K’s Secrecy & Securotisation Organiser, will share a South African perspective on the surveillance of activists before we open for discussion with participants.
