Reluctant radicals event: Feb 26th Helsinki

21 February 2013

On 26 February, in Helsinki, Counterpoint launches the third pamphlet in its series of narrative pieces on the country-specific conditions that explain the emergence of populism. Johanna Korhonen describes how Finland – a country that to outsiders has been known for its embracing of technological modernisation and its pro-Europeanism – became susceptible to a spectacular populist upheaval in 2011. In that year the True Finns won over nearly one fifth of the vote and went on to become the main opposition party to the current government.

If you'd like to attend, RSVP to [email protected] by 22 Feb. More details about the event can be found on the Counterpoint website.

Why we're suing over the £23m NHS data deal with 'spy tech' firm Palantir

Right as the NHS battles 'vaccine hesitancy', why is the government giving a CIA-backed firm – whose spyware has been accused of creating ‘racist’ feedback loops in US policing – a major, long-term role in handling our personal health information, and in England's cherished NHS?

Get the inside story from the journalists and lawyers battling to force transparency from the government on what they're doing with public money – and our health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.
