Indigenous Surveillance

Description

Indigenous Surveillance is an independent, regional-level project that compiles information from public sources on how digital technologies are used to surveil indigenous communities and land defenders in the Americas.

In a context of global environmental collapse -where the scientific community has recognized these activists' struggle- we hope that this project provides evidence on how surveillance technologies have contributed to this disaster.

In this first stage, we present the Chilean chapter focused on the case of the Mapuche communities.

We are a group of professionals working in areas related to technology research, journalism, laws, design, programming, and digital security. This project doesn’t have any institutional affiliation, and it has been self-financed.
