The November issue of Tech People is about the step that comes after you take a step back – defiance, action, a leap into the future. A future that starts with accepting that we cannot go back to the way things were before the pandemic, and in order to rebuild we need new solidarities and ways of resisting that take off from rejecting the ‘new normal’. This ‘new normal’ has only brought continuous onslaughts on the lives of IT employees, workers and students.

In this issue we chart out ways to collectively defy those who want to push us down.

It features articles by tech workers, call centre employees, VFX artists, student representatives and trade union leaders. We hope the spirit of defiance shines through their words and into your lives. If you want contribute to the magazine, email us a pitch!
