Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Digital Activism, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Law, Politics, Protest, Technology

Brazilian cyberactivists are again taking action against online surveillance in defence of the netcitizen rights. The Mega Não! [1] protest has been triggered by the controversial digital crimes bill [2] which aims to control cybercrime, raising serious issues on digital rights management and the free use of digital devices. There will be another demonstration [3] tomorrow, 25th of May, this time in Rio Grande do Sul State. Check their twitter [4] coverage out.
