Demonstrators are taking to the streets in the wake of George Floyd’s death across the country, and, with variations to suit their local situations, across the world. While tech like cell phones and social media can help to organize those events, and while cameras on smart phones can help record what happens at them, there is another side to tech, as there often is. Authorities are using cell phone tracing tech, facial recognition, and other tech tools to identify protestors, to populate databases, occasionally, even to follow them home or call them at home later. Thus, people who wish to exercise their Constitutional rights without opening themselves up to unconstitutional wrongs should make some key choices before they hit the streets. Below are some sites that, along with today’s program, can help people prepare if they wish to demonstrate anonymously in today’s digital world.
