In the second episode of Kill Switch, we take a look at what happens when you decide to take your government, president, or even your telecom service provider, to court in a desperate effort to get an internet shutdown stopped.
We hear about a daring court case in which a Sudanese lawyer fought to get his personal mobile internet connection reinstated after the bloody massacre that took place in Khartoum in 2019. We also hear how the president of Indonesia lost a legal battle against digital rights activists, as well as how the government of Cameroon tried to intimidate a judge who was trying to get a regional internet shutdown lifted.
This episode features interviews with Shahad Azim, Natalia Krapiva from Access Now (www.accessnow.org) and Damar Juniarto from SAFENet (https://id.safenet.or.id/).
Hosted by Felicia Anthonia. Produced by Access Now, the #KeepItOn coalition, and Volume.
