Spying on Democracy: Government Surveillance, Corporate Power and Public Resistance

Heidi Boghosian, Executive Director, National Lawyers Guild; Author, Spying on Democracy: Government Surveillance, Corporate Power, and Public Resistance

Boghosian documents the disturbing increase in surveillance of ordinary citizens and then explains the danger she believes it poses to our privacy, to our civil liberties, and to the future of democracy itself. Since the news recently broke about how widespread government surveillance actually is, Boghosian has been interviewed in more than 30 media outlets nationwide. Come find out how deeply embedded our surveillance culture has become.
