"(Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner) specifically said to the (National Security Agency), 'I did not mean for the programs to be enacted the way you've enacted them, and if you continue them under these circumstances, I cannot get these programs reauthorized in 2015.'"

– Nathan White, national spokesperson with Restore the Fourth, on how Rep. Sensenbrenner, creator of the Patriot Act, thinks government surveillance has gone too far and is now proposing legislation to rein that in.

Closer Than Expected Vote in House to Defund NSA Dragnet Surveillance Shows Reform is Within Reach

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Nathan White, national spokesperson with Restore the Fourth, conducted by Scott Harris

surveillance

In a surprise to many inside-the-beltway politicians and media pundits, legislation that would have defunded the National Security Agency’s program that collects massive amounts of data on U.S. citizens’ phone communications, narrowly lost in the U.S. House of Representatives by only 12 votes on July 24. This, despite bipartisan opposition to the measure by the Obama administration and both Republican and Democratic Party leaders.  Story continues

2013 Walk for Our Grandchildren on Climate Change Sends Urgent Message: "Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground"

Interview with Steve Norris, initiator of Walk for Our Grandchildren, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

walk

In late July, during what is statistically the hottest two weeks of the year in the U.S., the group 350.org's “Summer Heat” series of protest actions drew attention to climate change and the growing demand for government and industry to implement regulations to combat it. One of the affiliated actions was the “2013 Walk for Our Grandchildren,” in which dozens of elders as well as teens and some middle-aged activists walked up to 100 miles from Camp David, Md. – the presidential retreat named for President Eisenhower's grandson – to Washington D.C. Other marchers joined 35 miles down the road at Harper's Ferry, W. Va., to highlight their fight for liberation from fossil fuels, just as abolitionist John Brown's attack on the federal arsenal there highlighted the fight against slavery.  Story continues

After Supreme Court Guts Voting Rights Act, Justice Department Challenges New Restrictive State Election Laws

Interview with Myrna Perez, deputy director, Brennan Center for Justice Democracy Program at New York University Law School, conducted by Scott Harris

voting

After the Supreme Court’s controversial and narrow 5 to 4 ruling overturning a key section of the 1965 Voting Rights Act on June 25, states across the country that had been prevented from implementing restrictive voter ID laws, reduced early voting schedules and limiting voter registration, moved quickly to revive those once outlawed measures. States moving to enforce these laws recently blocked for their discriminatory consequences, include Texas, North Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi, which had long been subject to the Voting Rights Act’s pre-clearance provisions due to their documented history of election regulations which disenfranchised minority voters.  Story continues
