A Facebook event was crucial in mobilizing 300,000 people in the streets of Manila against corruption.  Social media helped organize opposition to the anti-cybercrime law in 2012, and citizen media activists were integral  to coordinating  disaster relief and response in the aftermath of typhoon Haiyan in 2013.

In this  panel Filipino netizens will tell us how they’ve been  using online tools to promote good governance and transparency in their society.

We’ll also discuss some of the barriers they face - cost and quality of Internet connection, online regulations, and their privacy concerns.
