Exactly one year ago, on 34C3 a workshop introduced the idea of an A-NOC, an Activist Network Operation Center. The outcome basically was an encrypted mailing list of people who raised interest for activist tech support during major political events.
Out of this list two events have already been supported; one being an ecological protest camp in 2016 and the other being the G20 protest camps in 2017, each by a different subset of people. After a workshop about the experiences at G20 at Hack-On in Amsterdam 2017, even more people asked to be added to the list; however this list remained silent for quite a while.
This meet-up is intended to bring together the remaining list members and other interested people in order to discuss, how to move forward and what fields of activity (hardware stock, roll-out scenarios, community) might be relevant for further efforts.
On request, a replay of the Hack-On workshop is available; however there might not be the infrastructure for displaying it properly.
