Heidi Boghosian, author Spying on Democracy, Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild

Tell us a story

Hemisphere project-- ATT Govt 

What is this book about?    

How has the surveillance and  police state affected activism and protest recently?

Where is this heading? What will this look like in 10-20 years if this keeps going?

You report that the prison industry has lobbied for longer sentences so they'll make more money. I assume that this is happening in other areas as well. 

Can you discuss how this is effecting journalism in particular?

another thing is the government is taking away reporter confidentiality. 

Police perjury

Young people, millennials in particular, don't care about their loss of privacy, that their phones are being recorded, that their emails are all accessed and stored. What do you tell them?

What do you say to someone who says "I don't care if they spy on me. I have nothing to hide"?

Do you have any advice on what people can do immediately?


Electronic privacy information center

What's the message you have for Chelsea Manning, Thomas Drake and Edward Snowden

Can you address police breaking the law (perjury, killing people without accountability)?

The next mayor of NYC looks to be a pretty liberal guy. How do you think he will stand up to Ray Kelly NYPD commissioner?
