This Sunday 29th, Pirate Party Australia member Ben McGinnes will be hosting a panel on censorship in gaming, media and society in the Wombat Theatre at Pax Australia from 2pm to 3pm. More details here: http://aus.paxsite.com/schedule/panel/pax-pirata-censorship-in-gaming-media-and-society
This will be the second year we have run this event (after a packed out and highly received panel last year). Featuring activists, speakers, members of industry, academia and civil society, this panel will be a discussion around issues central to the Pirate Party Platform. This year we’ve also been upgraded to the largest theatre available at the convention with seating space for 1500 potential in-person viewers! If you are not in Melbourne or otherwise unable to make the event, you’re invited to watch the free live stream via the official Pax 3 Twitch channel https://go.twitch.tv/pax3
If you’re a member, you are invited to wear your Party shirt and I’ll be bringing two pullup banners for party visibility, as well as flyers to hand out at the door. Please contact Ben if you are interested in volunteering to hand out flyers, or look out for people like myself wearing a PPAU t-shirt. During the event I’ll be livetweeting from @PPAU_QLD via hashtags #paxpirata and I’ll be swinging in other tags like #censorship #auspol etc where I can fit them. Feel free to join me.
See you there pirates!
