Salon Mazal Video Conference: Digital Activism in the New Middle East
Tomorrow I’ll be talking to Salon Mazal in Tel Aviv about digital activism and the struggle for political change in Israel and the Middle East. So much to talk about: the Egyptian Revolution, Facebook, the Green Revolution, Twitter, exposing the dark secrets of the national security state, afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted, etc. I’ll be sharing some of the my latest scoops about Gabi Ashkenazi and Muhammad Danef, barring any intervention by the censor. The talk itself will involve use of digital technology to reach across borders as I’ll be talking via video hookup. I’m really looking forward to it.
If you live in or near Tel Aviv, the address is 32 Yitzhak Sadeh Street.
Here is a bit about Salon Mazal’s mission:
Salon Mazal is a unique center in Israel, spreading information and raising awareness of a wide variety of issues related to social change, including human rights, animal rights, the environment, globalization, social and economic oppression, consumerism, feminism and gender issues and many more.
Salon Mazal has a lending library, a shop and a space for meetings, lectures, workshops and film screenings. Salon Mazal is run by an open, non-hierarchical collective of volunteers.
