Once the nearly exclusive purview of lawyers and librarians, questions of copyrights, freedom of information, and open source programming now reach into the lives of everyone. From the knock-off Prada bag, to the distribution of music, to question of privacy that could impact national security–all of these issues and more come to the fore with currently available technologies.

Are you MTR-aware? Zia Grossman-Vendrillo ’15 invites you to promote environmental justice:
Humans are intimately connected with the physical topography of the Earth, whether it’s Foss Hill or Appalachian hills and river valleys.
On the evening of Thursday, April 25th, Foss Hill will be alive with drums, banjos, guitars, voices, stones on stones, fire, and resounding cries for justice from Appalachia. We will use these media to raise awareness about environmental and social destruction in coalfield communities from the practice of Mountaintop Removal (MTR) mining, as well as the dedicated movement to resist these forces.
The Wesleyan MTR-awareness crew will be joined by:
-Guest speaker Colin Bennett from 350.org (350CT) and organizer of
–Morgan O’Kane, virtuoso banjo player, shouter and activist from
Virginia, now based in New York City, whose live performances are sure
