  7. 7. BUT FIRST source: Fllickr/Picture Perfect Pose two notes of warning
  8. 8. ACTIVIST SECURITY Do not attempt digital activism without first considering the political context in your own country. • Social media is public, meaning the digital actions of you and the people you connect with can be watched by your government. • Governments are also getting very good at cracking passwords and linking accounts to physical locations, meaning you can be identified and harmed in the physical world. • Read “Digital Security for Activists” (https://oldhelp.riseup.net/assets/ digital_security_for_activists.pdf) or “Protecting Your Security Online” (https:// www.accessnow.org/blog/protecting-your-security-online-english-text-only1)
  9. 9. NETWORKED AUTHORITARIANISM While activists are using digital tools to change the power structure, repressive govts are using the same tools to prevent that change. • Censorship of opposition content, so few people in your country will ever see it (particularly in MENA and China) • Surveillance of activists, both for chilling effect and to actually apprehend and punish (particularly in MENA and China) • Propaganda of their own position, successfully using social media to maintain support for the status quo (particularly in CIS) • Read: Rebecca MacKinnon, Katy Pearce, Evgeny Morozov (above typology is his)

  12. 12. ACTIVISTS WILL BENEFIT If digital practices are analyzed by experts in nonviolence.

  19. 19. ENHANCEMENT Of the 54 methods of Protest and Persuasion there were only 2 for which we could not find digital enhancements Though the sections for Noncooperation and Intervention have received fewer notes, coordination of most of these methods could also be facilitated by digital tools like SMS, email, chat, and encrypted versions of these technologies.
  20. 20. NEW FORMS Most means of Protest and Persuasion can now occur online as well as offline. Because Noncooperation and Intervention require direct engagement with institutions of power, new forms require that the institution of power have an online extension that can be targeted, such as a “denial of service” attack on a government website.
