Privacy in Protests

What is the importance of privacy for protestors? How is it possible to safeguard the privacy of the protestors, both offline and online? The project Physio·gnomy uses the control-access definition of privacy used by Marijn Sax in The Handbook of Privacy Studies (2018): “Privacy is about the control one has over access to oneself” as its starting point to explore the notion of privacy during protests. To be visible as a protestor should not come at the cost of your privacy.
