With most outlets focusing on the dramatic clashes between protesters and police, Kevin will be telling stories that show how Brown’s murder and the militaristic response are emblematic of the daily injustices black people are made to suffer in Ferguson and elsewhere in America.

I appeared on RT’s “Breaking the Set,” which is hosted by Abby Martin. Center for Constitutional Rights fellow Susan Hu and I appeared as part of a panel to discuss the released guidebook. We covered a lot of ground in the twelve minutes we had to discuss the watchlisting criteria.

Each day of Chelsea Manning’s trial, I would pull my rental car into the lot where media waited to be escorted into Fort Meade by the military. Just about every day Clark Stoeckley would be there with his WikiLeaks Truck daring the military to tell him he could not drive his truck on base. His truck would then sit parked by the media center all day as he drew his sketches—sometimes from the media center, sometimes from inside the courtroom.
Stoeckley’s book, The US vs. Private Chelsea Manning is the first book that gives the world an accessible account of what unfolded at Manning’s court martial.

Molly Crabapple has an excellent article in Vanity Fair on how journalists love to love dissidents in other countries (Pussy Riot) but ignore those in their own country (Barrett Brown, Cecily McMillan, Bradley Manning) who make them uncomfortable. In other words, all the people we cover here at FDL. So I was really happy to see her call out Kevin Gosztola for his work on the Manning trial.

Blowing the whistle on wrongdoing creates a moral frequency that vast numbers of people are eager to hear. We don’t want our lives, communities, country and world continually damaged by the deadening silences of fear and conformity.
I’ve met many whistleblowers over the years, and they’ve been extraordinarily ordinary. None were applying for halos or sainthood. All experienced anguish before deciding that continuous inaction had a price that was too high. All suffered negative consequences as well as relief after they spoke up and took action. All made the world better with their courage.

Anyone who has not endured the story told in Ghosts of Tom Joad is privileged, overwhelmingly. But they likely live with the fear that at any moment they could be in Earl’s shoes.

Obtaining this information is more of an art form than a bureaucratic process. It’s tricky, costly and time-consuming, which is why we need your help if we hope to learn more about Kiriakou’s case. Firedoglake’s Kevin Gosztola is teaming up with independent reporter Jason Leopold — who has done groundbreaking work on the torture of Abu Zubaydah — to file a series of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to uncover the truth about John’s prosecution.

Edward Snowden has rekindled public interest in the conduct of US intelligence agencies leading media organizations to believe it worthwhile to at minimum pay lip service to critical questions, which should be asked. The country now also has a small movement of people calling for a new modern-day Church Committee to investigate the actions of US intelligence agencies and this movement is likely to grow.

Nathan Schneider, author of Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse, is a reporter who began covering Occupy Wall Street in New York City in the summer of 2011 when a small group was conceptualizing ideas for the action that would take place on September 17, 2011. He spent a considerable amount of time in Zuccotti Park, which occupiers renamed Liberty Square, even sleeping there. He witnessed police intimidation and harassment. He saw hundreds get arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge. He periodically assisted occupiers when they needed help with little things, like holding a sign for a moment or even drafting communiques to go up on the Occupy Wall Street website.
