The Surveillance Teach-In Part 2: Berlin

An evening event with NSA-Whistleblower William Binney, Jacob Appelbaum and Laura Poitras, moderated by Andy Müller-Maguhn.

William Binney worked with the National Security Agency for 32 years and served as its technical director. In 2001 he resigned to protest against the NSA's using his telecommunication interception tools against American citizens. He accused the NSA of breaking the US constitution with this practice.

Binney is knowledgeable about the architecture of technical systems as well as of global surveillance systems and alliances. In light of the documents revealed by Edward Snowden, we will attempt to create a realistic overall picture of global surveillance with journalists Jacob Appelbaum and Laura Poitras, and discuss our options in terms of political and technical resistance.

The panel will be moderated by Andy Müller Maguhn, who runs He is a member of the board of the Wau Holland Foundation.

The first part of "Surveillance Teach-In" took place at the Whitney Museum in New York on April 20th, 2012, about a year after Snowden's revelations. Surveillance Teach-In is an experimental format that addresses the question of survival in a surveillance panopticon.

The event will be held in English.
