This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Sept. 21, 2016 for week ending Sept. 30, 2016

"Since Edward Snowden came forward, the Congress has passed the first intelligence reforms in 40 years; the courts have ruled what Snowden revealed to be illegal and the NSA had to curtail its activities. ... We're asking people to support our petition, which calls on President Obama to use his pardon power to pardon Edward Snowden before he leaves office."

– Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, on how Edward Snowden's whistleblowing leak has created a sea change in the way the public views online privacy today, and why there's a chance of a presidential pardon

U.S. Human Rights Groups Press Obama to Grant Snowden Presidential Pardon

MP3 Interview with Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, conducted by Scott Harris

snowden

A campaign to persuade President Obama that he should issue a presidential pardon to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was launched to coincide with the opening of Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone’s newest biopic movie, “Snowden.” The Pardon Snowden campaign, supported by the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch among other groups, is working to convince Obama that “Snowden’s act of whistleblowing benefited the United States and enriched democratic debate worldwide.” The campaign is urging citizens to write the president and sign an online petition in support of the effort.  Story continues

Report Details Wall Street Banks Financing Controversial Dakota Access Pipeline

MP3 Interview with Hugh MacMillan, senior researcher with Food & Water Watch, conducted by Scott Harris

dapl

In recent developments in the ongoing opposition campaign to stop construction of the Dakota Access oil Pipeline in North Dakota, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 16 ordered a temporary halt to construction of the 1,100-mile pipeline near the Missouri River, upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. The stop work order is in effect until the court can rule on a preliminary injunction sought by the Standing Rock tribe that was initially denied in federal court on Sept. 9. The tribe and their allies oppose the pipeline because of sacred burial sites in the area and the threat to its drinking water supply posed by a potential oil spill. Climate activists are working to block fossil fuel pipelines that contribute to global warming.  Story continues

U.S. Military Industrial Complex a Major Contributor to Climate Change Crisis

MP3 Interview with Patricia Hynes, director of the Traprock Center for Peace and Justice, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climate

Former presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders called climate change the most urgent threat to national security, but most government officials – and most peace activists – don't necessarily make the connection between the havoc that the climate crisis is already creating and will create in the future on the issues of peace and security. One glaring example is the drought in Syria, which pushed tens of thousands of Syrians off their land and into the cities, exacerbating conflicts which precipitated the civil war that has raged for the past five-and-a-half years, killing up to 500,000 Syrians and displacing millions more.  Story continues
