**NOTE - SPECIAL TIME OF 10AM AEDT**
Burning Platforms is a fortnightly virtual forum covering the latest in technology news, events and policy.
This fortnight we ask 'Whatever happened to the free web?'
The internet promised new ways to challenge power and privilege, so how has it become a tool to promote division and entrench despots?
Join us as we dive deep with special guest Elaine Pearson from Human Rights Watch into the ways tech platforms have become wilful partners in oppression around the globe.
This and more in the always busy world of tech!
Join our regular panellists:
- Peter Lewis, Director of The Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology
- Lizzie O' Shea, Chair of Digital Rights Watch
- Dan Stinton, Managing Director of Guardian Australia
And special guest:
- Elaine Pearson, Australia Director Human Rights Watch
