If you’re interested in the National Security Agency and Edward Snowden, there’s a great event going on in New York City tomorrow evening. NYC residents should come on down to the Judson Memorial Church at 6:30 PM to hear activists and lawyers explain what the Snowden leaks mean. I’m helping out a bit with the event, so say hello if you see me. 

Here’s more information from the Facebook page for the event:

Co-sponsored by: Mutant Legal Collective, National Lawyers Guild-NYC, Agaric Drupal Collective, and Bill of Rights Defense Committee

So, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about this guy, Edward, lately.
Edward Snowden? Yeah, sounds familiar. Now, what about all of the other terms you’ve been hearing thrown around? There’s a lot of technical vocabulary that gets used in association with the surveillance state, but how does surveillance really work? What do the documents Snowden leaked really mean for you and me?

Please join us for panel discussion facilitated by Molly Knefel of Radio Dispatch and Nathan Sheard of the Mutant Legal Collective that will help us understand a bit better what it all means.
Panel Featuring:
Alfredo López, May First/People Link
Sarah Hogarth, Human rights strategist and advocate
Abi Hassen, National Lawyers Guild
and Thomas Hintze and Rose Regina Lawrence of Mutant Legal

Doors will open at 6:30
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Sq. South
