In the face of potentially life-threatening dangers, they dare to speak truth to power. They're the whistleblowers; the crusaders for truth who often stand as the lone link between corrupted corporate and governmental interests and the public's right to know. The stirring film "War on Whistleblowers," directed by acclaimed documentarian Robert Greenwald, outlines the challenges and sacrifices faced by these tireless activists, and calls attention to their increasing importance in a society where the powerful are more omniscient and unregulated than ever before.
"War on Whistleblowers" will be shown at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 12, at Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd., Fremont. A discussion will follow the screening. This event is free, though donations are welcome to help cover the costs of the Second Saturday Documentary Series.
The film spotlights the frightening storm that followed as a result of Snowden's actions in the form of a widespread government-sanctioned smear campaign. In the process, the public was urged to question whether Snowden was a patriot or a traitor.
The Second Saturday Documentary Series is co-sponsored by Niles Discovery Church and the San Jose Peace & Justice Center.
