Palestine under a digital panopticon: what can we do?
We will speak with Laila Sit Aboha about how Palestine is censored in the digital sphere at this meetup. However, rather than focusing solely on corporate censorship, such as Meta, we will also discuss the self-censorship and silences experienced by pro-Palestinian voices who fear being smeared, doxxed, and literally taken to court over their tweets. What can you do when speaking up means losing everything you own, including your job and visa? How can we show solidarity and do more for vulnerable voices? Join us as we consider these and other questions!
Laila Sit Aboha is a Palestinian community organizer, activist, and writer who currently works as Junior Advocacy and Communication Office at the European Legal Support Center (ELSC)
