[liberationtech] pictures of protesters with placards: low tech messaging about security

This photoseries is particularly interesting because it reinforces the
point that digital security is a responsibility to the group or cause,
rather than just personal protection. I think this is a tactic that
HIV/AIDS awareness groups have taken in a number of developing countries
(and for that matter DC as well). I have heard of similar methods being
used with in-person security trainings, but never see a coordination of
efforts in this regard.
Has anyone on Libtech encountered group pressure leveraged for security
practices amongst activists?
