People Rise Up Radio - 1917 Espionage Act: the war on journalists, activists, and whistleblowers

004-People Rise Up Radio Ep 04 05-28-13

On our fourth episode of People Rise Up Radio, which aired on May 28th, 2013, we discussed the historical and present day abuse of the 1917 Espionage Act. The law originally billed as a means to deal with spies working for foreign powers has instead been used to silence dissent since its passage. The number of activists, journalists, and whistleblowers that have been convicted and executed citing the Act vastly outnumber agents for foreign powers. The Obama administration has successfully used it more than all other administrations combined. We also aired our popular COINTEL-PRO based informational segment “How To Spot A Spy” – skill share for activists. Plus, Know Your Rights, the People’s History, and the rarely produced 420 Report.

ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES:
