Brisbane Killswitch: The Battle To Control The Internet says
EFA's Brisbane Chapter, in conjunction with the Queensland Council for Civil Liberties presents an exclusive screening of the award-winning documentary, Killswitch: the battle to control the Internet.

The Internet is under attack. Free speech, innovation and democracy are all up for grabs.

In Killswitch: The Battle to Control the Internet, Lawrence Lessig, Tim Wu and Peter Ludlow frame the story of two young hactivists, Aaron Swartz & Edward Snowden, who symbolize the disruptive and dynamic nature of the Internet. Their lives parallel one another as they free information to millions on the Internet, putting them directly in the cross-hairs of the most powerful interests in the world.

Following the film, a Q&A session featuring local digital rights experts will be held to discuss the challenges and opportunities for digital rights in Australia in 2017.
