Exposing and challenging the politics of technology

Breaking The Frame is based on the idea that everyone has the right to take part in decisions about technology.

We aim to break the frame that conceals the politics of technology — to expose the common roots of the wide-ranging social and environmental problems caused by technologies.

We organise a number of events each year.  Please keep an eye out for our upcoming events in London.

We also have a semi-regular reading group based in London.

Together with trade unionists and organisations from the peace and environment movements, Breaking The Frame helped to organise the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the Lucas Plan (find out more).
