The AT&T - NSA Spying Scandal


A conversation with…
Jeff Mittman, Post-9/11 Campaign Coordinator, American Civil Liberties Union
Danny O'Brien, Activism Coordinator, Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a class-action lawsuit against AT&T on January 31, 2006, accusing the telecom giant of violating the law and the privacy of its customers by collaborating with the National Security Agency (NSA) in its massive and illegal program to wiretap and data-mine Americans' communications.

In December of 2005, the press revealed that the government had instituted a comprehensive and warrantless electronic surveillance program that ignored the careful safeguards set forth by Congress – based on the Bill of Rights. The surveillance program, purportedly authorized by the President at least as early as 2001 and primarily undertaken by the NSA, intercepts and analyzes the communications of millions of Americans. But the government did not act – and is not acting – alone. The government requires the collaboration of major telecommunications companies to implement its unprecedented and illegal domestic spying program.

The program will be broadcast and webcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and rebroadcast throughout June as part of the ongoing Other Voices television series produced by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. For more information, visit http://www.peaceandjustice.org or call PPJC at (650) 326-8837.
