Inspired by the protests on the streets, hacktivists are taking to their computers in large number. The first hackday was held on June 16, drawing around 200 engineers, journalists, lawyers and activists in São Paolo. These hacktivists brainstormed on how to make protests more efficient, from tear gas-resistant masks to easier access to public data. Another group of hacktivists met on June 19 in Rio de Janeiro to do their digital part for protesters.
