According to an activist in Oakland, California, police officers produced surveillance footage of his participation in a political demonstration last week to his employers, prompting his firing. The activist, who goes by @Anon4Justice on Twitter, tweeted the following this morning:
I'm honored to have been invited to speak at NYU with Michael Ratner on the national security state's war on whistleblowers. Details below. Please come to the talk and spread the word!
The executive branch tells us that it needs to vacuum up our personal and associational information because its dragnet surveillance programs stop terrorist attacks. But the three letter agencies have produced absolutely zero evidence to support that claim.
