EFF/Open Rights Group Speakeasy night in London, June 14

The Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Open Rights Group will co-host a speakeasy event -- a kind of pub night -- in east London on June 14. I'll be there, with several ORG employees, supporters and volunteers, and so will Cindy Cohn, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's legal director and veteran of many of the Internet's most important legal skirmishes (she's the one who argued the Bernstein case, legalizing civilian use of strong cryptography -- among many other accomplishments).

Speakeasy events are free, informal meetups that give you a chance to mingle with local online rights supporters and speak with the people leading the charge to protect digital civil liberties. It is also our chance to thank you, the supporters who make it possible. For this round, we are pleased to welcome EFF members as well as all friends and guests. REGISTER HERE!

When: June 14th, 2012 6:00 PM through 8:00 PM

Location: The Reliance (upstairs)
336 Old Street
London, EC1V 9DR
United Kingdom

Speakeasy: London with the Open Rights Group


  1. Hu.  I donate a pile of money to the EFF each year, but I was kind of under the assumption that they were US based and just stuck the the US except to fight our bullshit treaties.  Mucking around with US internet policy has world wide effects.  US policy on the ‘tubes can become de facto world policy, but do they actively work in other countries beside the US?

    1. Well isn’t that a good thing? I mean, there are allot of organizations that concern themselves with the saem issues around the globe but it would be helpful if there was a large network kinda like the WWF (not the wrestling, the nature thing) to connect all these groups.
      I’m sure communications exists between the groups but an official umbrella organisation through which they could get funds and create actual and more forceful protests.

      1. I wasn’t complaining.  I was just curious.  I am all for the EFF fighting the good fight world wide.  The ‘tubes pass through more than one nation, and lots of people along the way can screw it up.
