Experiences in Sharing Digital Security Workshops in an Autonomous and Open Hackerspace in Mexico

This is a talk about the conditions in a very large city where a group of people who support this hackerspace have already made possible seven years of activities related to free software, free culture, hacking, digital security, and book presentations. Carlos will talk about the conditions that were faced by this autonomous hackerspace, along with the problems and successes in digital security workshops pre- and post-COVID-19, as well as the collaboration with other groups from other cities and countries that have made it possible to continue with this project.
