This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Jan. 29, 2014 for week ending Feb. 7, 2014

"It's very sad that a man who campaigned on trying to bring the rule of law back to surveillance has really signed off on something that is such a dramatic shift from what I think the Constitution requires – and certainly something that was worthy of a public discussion not being done in secret. And, of course, he signed off on the secrecy as well."

– Interview with Cindy Cohn, legal director with the Electronic Frontier Foundation on President Obama and his failure to end unconstitutional dragnet surveillance.

Obama's Proposed NSA Surveillance Reforms Fall Short, Congress Urged to Rein in Illegal Spying

MP3 Interview with Cindy Cohn, legal director with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, conducted by Scott Harris

nsa

Seven months after Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor turned whistleblower revealed details of the U.S. National Security Agency’s secret, massive surveillance of American’s communications, President Obama attempted to address rising public concern about these issues in a Jan. 17 speech. Having received a set of 46 recommendations from a panel of five intelligence and legal experts he had earlier appointed to assess the need for reforms, the president laid out his proposals to restructure NSA surveillance programs.  Story continues

United Church of Christ Takes Leading Role in Fossil Fuel Divestment Movement

MP3 Interview with Rev. Jim Antal, national leader on the fossil fuel divestment, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

divest

In the summer of 2012, environmentalist Bill McKibben published his seminal article, "Global Warming's Terrifying New Math," which kicked off a national campaign among colleges, municipalities and religious organizations to divest their endowment or pension fund holdings from fossil fuel stocks. The divestment campaign, which is gathering momentum, was inspired by the international anti-apartheid divestment campaign of the 1980s that was an important part of the movement that helped topple South Africa’s racist government.  Story continues

Congress Moves to Repair Some, But Not All of Supreme Court's Damage to Voting Rights Act

MP3 Interview with Marge Baker, executive vice president with People for the American Way, conducted by Scott Harris

votingrights

Immediately after the Supreme Court’s controversial June 25 - 5 to 4 ruling invalidating Section 4, a key element of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, states across the country that had previously 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 impose new restrictive voting laws, widely seen as a mechanism to disenfranchise minority, student and elderly voters, included Texas, North Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi – all dominated by the Republican party.  Story continues
