OONI at LAVITS and Primavera Hacker 2017

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to present OONI at two conferences in Chile: LAVITS and Primavera Hacker.


LAVITS is a Latin American network of surveillance technology and society studies that organizes international symposiums since 2009. It features publications, talks and workshops related to surveillance and technology, internet censorship, resistance and counter surveillance, identification, biometrics, protection of personal data and privacy. The fifth series of the LAVITS symposium took place in Santiago, Chile from 29th November to 1st December 2017.

As part of the symposium, we presented a research paper (pending publication) titled: Network interference in LATAM: Evaluating network measurements to detect information controls, internet censorship and surveillance. We also facilitated OONI and Tor workshops.

The 5th version of Primavera Hacker, an event bringing together hackers, activists, technologists, and feminists, took place in Santiago, Chile on 2nd and 3rd December 2017. We presented OONI and facilitated OONI and Tor workshops for Latin American communities.
