ps. Hi NSA.
A couple of interesting documentaries with more 'back story' though from different points of view. The Fifth Estate shows a somewhat skewed view of WikiLeaks (from a corporate media/'WikiLeaks could be the enemy' direction) while Mediastan is a look at the same Pvt Manning/State department cables release from an inside-WikiLeaks perspective.Thanks to everyone who participated on Tuesday. Together we demonstrated that activists, organizations, and companies can work in unison to fight mass surveillance, and laid a foundation for escalation over months to come.
Below are some numbers that quantify how we did* on Tuesday.
Documents Snowden leaked highlight NSA's use against pro-environment groups and international delegates at UN climate summits.“The problem is that you do things in the service of your country that are just not appropriate
to do in the private sector.”1
-- John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency
Since June, when Edward Snowden exposed the wide web of secret surveillance on US citizens by the US National Security Agency (NSA), we've been told its goal is only to find potential terrorists.
Well, that's not quite true. Unless, of course, you consider environmentalists ... terrorists.
