Digital Rights

Doesn’t It Bother You?

My trip to RightsCon in Rio was all about a different kind of human right. While we did spend a considerable amount of time talking about freedoms of expression and the press, empowering activists and human rights defenders and all that jazz, there was a great deal of chatter about digital rights – the rights to privacy, anonymity and security online. With groups like facebook and google having such a large store of information on all its users (and even some non-users), it’s been a big deal for people in the US and Europe. In Trinidad, it’s not been that big of a concern at all…at least in my opinion.

So I decided to interview a UWI student about what she is concerned about what she’s concerned about where facebook is concerned, and if that concern affects how she uses the site.
