Live Online Media Briefing: Google 'Dragonfly' discussed by Rights Activists and Digital Tech Experts
Monday, 10 December 2018: Starting at 11:00 AM EST / 08:00 AM PCT

On Monday 10 December 2018, the 70th International Human Rights Day, Tibetan, Uyghur and Chinese rights groups will join digital tech and ethical consumer specialists in two joint media briefings to oppose and discuss Google’s development of a censored search engine, code-named Project Dragonfly. In order to develop this controversial search engine for the Chinese market, Google must comply with China’s tight censorship laws and intrusive programme of online surveillance, effectively facilitating the Chinese government’s repressive regime and compromising their commitment to human rights. Senior research scientist, and former Google employee, Jack Poulson, will join the panel of rights activists and discuss the reasons behind his decision to resign from the company in August 2018 after he raised ethical concerns about this project.

Speakers include:
Lhadon Tethong (Tibet Action Institute)
Teng Biao (Chinese human rights lawyer)
Nathan Freitas (Guardian Project)
Mi Ling Tsui (Human Rights in China)
Jack Poulson (Senior Research Scientist)
Dorjee Tseten (Students for a Free Tibet)
Uyghur representative to be confirmed

Dec 10, 2018 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
