> On the 19th March, the Open Rights Group Edinburgh is organising a free public talk on UK-webfilters that are currently being introduces by ISPs. That's right, our open internet could become filtered...
> So what happened?
> In the summer of 2013 David Cameron announced his plans to introduce web-filters, also known as porn-filters; however the filters include many more categories. These additional categories can lead to censorship on the internet, potentially blocking legitimate content on the web.
> For the event we have Richard King from the Open Rights Group (ORG) as our main speaker. He is leading the "Blocked" project for ORG to list currently blocked websites. He will be explaining more about the risks of internet filtering and how to resist over-blocking.
> WHEN: Wednesday, March 19th, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
> WHERE: Informatics Forum G.07, University of Edinburgh
> 10 Crichton Street
> EH8 9AB, Edinburgh 
> Connect with the Open Rights Group via meetup and RSVP for the event if you want to come along.
