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!
National Security Overload: The War on Whistle-blowers, Journalism, and Privacy, and its Implications for Democracy
Where: Meyer Building at NYU (4 Washington Place), Rm 121
When: Wednesday November 6th, 6:45pm
Unprecedented government surveillance. Whistle-blowers prosecuted as spies. Leading American journalists threatened with arrest. The NYU Radical Film and Lecture Series presents two experts on rights and liberties for a discussion about the attacks on journalism, whistle-blowers, and privacy in the US — as well as implications of this offensive for activists and the U.S. population at large.
