Stand Up For Truth: An International Week to Support Whistleblowing
June 1-7, 2015 -- StandUpForTruth.org
Thomas Drake, Dan Ellsberg, Jesselyn Radack, Coleen Rowley, and Norman Solomon are making news in Europe with these events. They will deliver this petition in Berlin. Big news there, and this is your last chance to add your name and comments: click here.
Anywhere in the world, you can participate in webcasts with whistleblowers and their supporters:
- Director of media for the Institute for Public Accuracy Sam Husseini and author and law professor Marjorie Cohn -- 9 pm ET June 4
- NSA whistleblower William Binney and NSA whistleblower Kirk Wiebe -- 8 pm ET June 5
- Media critic and RootsAction cofounder Jeff Cohen and Author and communications professor Robert McChesney -- 9 pm ET June 5
- Journalist Kevin Gosztola and EPA whistleblower Marsha Coleman-Adebayo -- 5 pm ET June 6
The webcasts will each last 60 minutes. To listen and type in questions, just point your web browser here (bookmark it now) and turn up your volume. Everyone is encouraged to use the webcast and to type in questions there. It requires a computer and will not work on a phone. If you can't use a computer, there are a limited number of lines on which you can phone in. Just call 1-844-472-8237 (toll-free in U.S.)
You can also ask these whistleblowers and truth tellers questions beforehand or during the webcasts by tweeting them to @Roots_Action.
