Friday Film: “We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists”

PS:One member Jenny organized a Friday night viewing a few weeks ago of The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz.  I was thankful to be able to watch that powerful film with others and discuss it afterwards.

To follow on that success, I would like to invite anyone that is interested to join me this Friday night at PS:One to watch the 2012 documentary film: 

A documentary on the workings and beliefs of the self-described ‘hacktivist’ collective, Anonymous.
