New zine: Infecticitis #15, the result of my time in occupied Kanienkehaka territory, in english the Mohawk people, more recently known as Montréal. For the zine release party I did a double workshop on comics and email encryption, I felt really good doing it and the audience was super nice and interested.
More workshops coming up, both of which will come with a table full of zines as I rebuild the distro in North America:
March 9th during the Shalefield Justice Spring Break.
Dismantling the Surveillance State: An Intro to Secure Communications
Since Snowden’s revelations about the NSA, we can safely say now that the activist who always took the battery out of their phone wasn’t just being paranoid, but clearly had legitimate reasons to do so, and maybe wasn’t being paranoid enough. In this workshop we will discuss practical ways we can “”take the battery out”” of the many digital ways we communicate and use the internet, such as by embracing anonymous and encrypted services. We will talk about why surveillance is harmful, especially for those of us with plans to change the world for the better, and what we can do to redefine our relationship to technology. Plus an intro to email encryption with PGP. Accessible language + safer space to ask questions.
And March 19th, 6-9pm a Crypto Party at Parts and Crafts in Somerville, MA. Hopefully the first of many!
