Media Monitoring Africa invites you to the relaunch of the expanded and improved Real411 platform and our exciting new initiative, the Spotters Network.
Following the success of the Real411 in the elections it was clear that we needed to set up a system that would enable members of the public to report disinformation and ensure it was addressed in an open, transparent and accountable manner within our laws and constitutional principles. We also found that during the lead up to the elections people weren’t just wanting to report disinformation but also cases of incitement and hate speech. We have decided to add those to the new version of Real411.
Date: 18 March 2020
Time: 17:30pm for 18:00pm
Venue: Webber Wentzel, 90 Rivonia Rd, Sandhurst, Sandton, 2196
