Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M)[1] is an informal monthly meetup designed to connect technoactivists, hacktivists and people like you who are interested in circumvention, anti-censorship and anti-surveillance tech. TA3M happens already in New York, San Francisco and Madison and, as of this month, Amsterdam joins the list! Each #TA3M event is run slightly differently. However, each event will provide individuals with opportunity to hear from others in the field, and share their work and/or ideas. See details here:
