In this session we will share our latin-hack-feminist views on the right to be forgotten. We will analyze how to safeguard our freedoms in the network - to express, to inform, to access to all kinds of content; and on the other hand - how to guarantee our right to privacy and intimacy without this granting private companies and governments the power to censor and transgress the neutrality of the network. We will examine these discourses, which sometimes over simplify the issue and are enunciated from a white-cis-masculine privilege. This is why we seek to generate or enunciate a series of arguments or "counter-arguments" about the need to eliminate or modify certain content of the network, or at least to trigger the need to have a debate about it; taking into account our backgrounds, the specificity of our contexts, and our feminist perspectives.
Cyber-feminists, journalists, activists, and human rights defenders in general.
We will systematize the outcomes of the discussion in a fanzine/brochure, tentatively following these questions: > Key technical concepts to understand what we are talking about when we talk about the right to be forgotten (is to de-index? Delete? Hide information? How does a search engine work?) > From a privacy and digital security stand: what technical features do we imagine that could facilitate the interaction between those who publish information and the people subject of that information? > What roles we want (or we don't want) private corporations, governments, and virtual/hacktivist communities to play in relation to the right to be forgotten?
