Conspiracy – The Logan Symposium – October 2018

 

Molly will be participating in this year’s Logan Symposium in London during October 19th and 20th. 

Conspiracy! is about the growing machinery of surveillance and censorship, and what might be our response to it. Then there’s official propaganda and subterfuge. From paid Russian Trolls toiling to Western-funded “media activists” in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, what are the chances for real freedom and democracy when the new media machinery becomes a powerful new weapon of war? The proposed new Espionage Act in the UK, and the renewed threat of prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act in the US, deliberately blur the distinction between information-seeking investigative journalists and spies from a hostile state.

The Paris Review: Sketchbook: The First Sex-Worker Town Hall

Molly has a new Sketchbook article published in the Paris Review about her experience at a recent presentation by New York’s 12th congressional district representative Saraj Patel regarding striking down SESTA and FOSTA

“As crises so often do, SESTA and FOSTA provoked unprecedented activism: art shows, protests, performances, fund-raisers. There was powerful, beautiful work that made me proud to belong to this harlot mafia. (I had too many friends of too many years in that room, friends who I’ve drank with till too many bleary dawns, to fake some sterile sort of distance.)”
