Information Security and Organizing Workshop

When: Thursday, July 20, 2017, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: encuentro 5 • 9 Hamilton Place • Boston

Join activists from Cryptoparty Boston for a hands-on workshop to learn about encryption tools and how we can protect our privacy against the surveillance state and other intrusive forces.  We'll "hang out" with computers and try to get rid of the fear that the panopticon (the "all-seeing eye" of the state) wants us to live under.  Bring your questions, laptops, phones and devices and together we will help set you up with various tools to encrypt your communication and be anonymous on the internet.

UNITE TO MOBILIZE FOR PEACE, JUSTICE AND STOPPING THE WARS

Statement by United for Justice with Peace (Boston) 

UJP calls on the peace and antiwar community to support both local and national protests of the Trump presidency during inauguration week and the women's rights march in January.  We need to oppose racist appointments and many other actions and policies, and promote our alternative vision of peace and social justice.

The 2016 presidential campaign barely mentioned the wars abroad; both candidates had a pro-war stance disregarding considerable public skepticism about the wars.  The massive war economy and war budget is a major contributor to the income inequality that fueled the anger and discontent of much of the electorate, both Democratic and Republican.
