|Assembly specification||2. We'd like to come together with a lot of people, a spot with lot's of people passing by and good visibility would be nice., 3. We need something special or in between those options: Please specify in the field planning notes.|
|Planning notes||FIfF is willing to share their space with us, so we will probably not need any extra space (unless the Fahrplan schedules our respective talks at the same time, as we would both like to have self-organised sessions following these talks). For now, I just wanted to register our assembly here for it to make it on the assemblies list in the wiki and become visible to the public.|
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights. Our vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, and are funded mainly by our membership and public donations.
Digital@Amnesty, a task force recently established within Amnesty Germany, addresses human rights violations committed in the context of the use of digital Information and Communications Technology. The task force's goals are to keep a critical eye on the further development of digital technologies and to help Amnesty find a position on the issues arising thereof with a view to the future protection of human rights in a digital ICT environment.
