I am a member of the Open Rights Group, a campaign organisation promoting civil liberties, transparency and openness. I’ve been working closely with Milena Popova on establishing a North East working group, where members and non-members alike can meet to freely discuss issues, hear talks from interesting speakers and collaborate on future campaigns.

Our first event is penciled in at the Star and Shadow Cinema (Stepney Bank, Newcastle, NE1 2NP) from 4-6pm on Sunday 11th November 2012. If you have the time free, I’d love to see you there!

For now, here’s some useful links that it’s worth keeping an eye on:

We’re looking for people to speak at future events or help out in any way. If this is something you’d like to do then please contact me and we can start a discussion.
