A call for resistance against the politicians and corporations who are trying to exert new forms of technological control. ‘A radical defence of the human being’ means fighting for universal rights, for human- centric institutions, and for the right to resist control of our lives by algorithms. Paul Mason is a journalist, broadcaster and author, whose books include PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future and Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions.

This event is part of the 'Looking Forward' strand which has kindly been sponsored by Barnsley Digital Media Centre.
