Smashing Corporate Secrecy: A piñata party


We will start showcasing how Wikileaks made corporations transparent, from TPP to Julius Baer to Sonyhack to Spyfiles.

The activity’s objective will be to explore in a roundtable discussion how we can, together, with regulation, codes, hacks, leaks, unions and other forms of solidarity, tear down corporate secrecy, especially, but not limited to, big tech.

With each good idea, the participants will have the opportunity to smash a corporate-shaped piñata.

Latin American-themed refreshments and cocktails will be served.
