“The Olympics and Civil Liberties” with Kade Crawford

SUNDAY, April 5th at the Community Church of Boston, 565 Boylston St. (Copley Square)
Boston, Kade Crawford will give a talk on “The Olympics and Civil Liberties”. The MPP endorses this event and hopes you will be able to attend. From the CCB site:

“There’s been a lot of talk about the financial cost of hosting the 2024 Olympics in Boston, but very few people have discussed what might happen to our civil liberties if the international games come to town. Unfortunately, history and the projected budgeting for policing and surveillance suggest the civil liberties impact on the city and region would be substantial. What exactly might $2 billion in ‘security’ spending do to Boston, for the games and for the city’s future?

Kade Crockford is the director of the Technology for Liberty project at the ACLU of Massachusetts. Her writing on surveillance and policing has featured in The Guardian, The Nation, The Boston Globe, and WBUR. Kade writes Privacy Matters, a blog about privacy and the security state, at privacysos.org/blog.

Followed by a friendly luncheon, feel free to stay if you’d like. Music by Darol Anger and Emmy Phelps.”
