“Dictatorship in the Digital Space” is an unsettling reality. As dictators exploit cutting-edge tech to muzzle dissent, monitor every move, and craft illusions of popularity, a valiant counterforce rises.

Join a live session with Manal and Reinhardt from the Tech4Evil.com podcast on season 3 titled “Don’t Click Here.” We dive into the riveting stories of intrepid activists, journalists, and freedom fighters from around the globe, showcasing their unwavering courage in the face of digital oppression.

Delve into the narrative of a fashion designer who ingeniously employs technology to combat slave labor in the Uyghur forced labor camps, unveiling the power of creativity in the fight for human rights. Discover the remarkable journey of an entrepreneur who takes on the battlefield of Twitter to combat disinformation, showcasing how grassroots efforts can challenge the spread of falsehoods in the digital age.

From ingenious tactics that keep communication lines open during internet blackouts, to subverting digital surveillance with counter-tech, this episode illuminates the indomitable human spirit, revealing the ingenuity born from necessity.

But it’s more than stories; it’s an awakening. Through insights into the global struggle between liberty and oppression, democracy and dictatorship, you’ll grasp the vital role technology plays in shaping our shared future.
