"Enemies of the State"
The Center for Media Justice and Free Press invite you to attend "Enemies of the State: Government Surveillance in Communities of Color" -- a panel discussion which explores the ways that local and federal spying operations work to stifle leaders within the movement for social and racial justice.
Today, more people are learning what many of us have already known, that U.S. agencies have carried on multiple secret domestic surveillance programs- with the aid of companies like Verizon, Facebook and Google. Unfortunately, this is nothing new. Today's NSA revelations only build on the FBI's Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO), which was used during the 1960s and 1970s to monitor telephone conversations and track mail of black, Latino, and Indigenous leaders.
Though the platforms have changed, the goal remains the same: destabilize and dismantle movements for political and economic rights.
Join us for this important discussion moderated by Morgan State University Professor Dr. Jared Ball. Panelists include:
- Dhoruba Bin-Wahad-former political prisoner and Black Panther Party leader
- Seema Sadanandan- director of the ACLU-DC affiliate
- Adwoa Masozi-communications specialist and media activist of the Bill of Rights Defense League
- Fahd Ahmed- the legal and policy director of Desis Rising Up and Moving
- Alfredo Lopez- founder of May First/ People Link and leader in Puerto Rico Student Movement
