    In this time of heightened suspicion and increasing questions surrounding mass government surveillance, Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice is pleased to present our “Matters of Urgency” event for spring 2014: “Beyond Orwell: Surveillance, Secrets, and Whistleblowers in the Security State,” an evening of talks and discussion by prominent whistle-blowers of our time and the journalists who brought their disclosures to light. “Beyond Orwell” will feature an address by Daniel Ellsberg, who famously released The Pentagon Papers to the New York Times in 1971, helping to bring about an end to the Vietnam War. Journalist Glenn Greenwald will join us by video, and other guests will include Thomas Drake (former NSA Executive), Ray McGovern (former National Intelligence Estimates Chair), Jesselyn Radack (former Ethics Advisor to the US Department of Justice and Edward Snowden’s attorney), and Coleen Rowley (former FBI agent). Moderated by author and film producer (of the recently acclaimed documentary “Dirty Wars”) Anthony Arnove.

                  http://sparrowmedia.net http://stopNDAA.org A lawsuit over a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was back in federal court at 10am on February 6, 2013, awaiting decision on an injunction prohibiting indefinite detention of civilians without charge or trial.
