Civil Liberties Groups Will Push Next President For Stronger Surveillance Reforms

MP3 Interview with Sue Udry, executive director of the Defending Dissent Foundation, conducted by Scott Harris

surveillance

After former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden publicly revealed details about U.S. spy agencies’ dragnet surveillance American’s communications, there was a push to enact reforms by both citizens and legislators. The USA Freedom Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on June 2, 2015, mandates that telecommunications companies, not the government, will store phone metadata. The legislation also demands increased transparency from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance, or FISA Court, which has been criticized as a rubber stamp in approving government access to personal phone data. Under the new law, FISA Court judges will be allowed to, but not required, to appoint a “friend of the court” to argue on behalf of privacy concerns.  Story continues

MP3 Interview with Corey Menafee, Yale University dining hall worker, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

calhoun

Last July a Yale University dining hall worker smashed a window depicting slaves harvesting cotton in the residential college where he worked, declaring he was tired of seeing the "extremely degrading" image. The name of that residential college – Yale's equivalent of a dormitory – is Calhoun, named for John C. Calhoun, a U.S. senator from South Carolina and later vice president of the U.S. who was one of the South's strongest proponents of slavery and white supremacy. Calhoun was also a Yale graduate.  Story continues
