Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorTom Gallagher
A free public forum presented by PDA (Progressive Democrats of America – San Francisco)

Our freedoms are being threatened more than at any time since the McCarthy period of the fifties. Not just by the antics of politicians, but directly in our living space: Massive surveillance with the latest technology; the militarization of the police; online monitoring of our messages; the unrestrained killing of African-American and other minority people, media self-censorship.

As always, resistance and opposition are coming from activists on the ground. This is especially true in the Bay Area. At this month’s forum, activists will be telling us what they are doing to fight back against the incipient police state.

Speakers will be:

Shahid Buttar, Director of Grassroots Advocacy, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)

Tessa D’Arcangelew, Leadership Development Manager at the ACLU of Northern California:

Zaki Manian, San Francisco Organizer, Restore the Fourth

Tracy Rosenberg, Executive Director, Media Alliance
