Hey folks, long time lurker who hasn't been to the space in many months! <div>Thought some of you would be interested in coming to see Birgitta Jonsdottir speak on Tuesday. She is amazing! If you don't know about her Wikileaks involvement or her case with Twitter (being represented by EFF), you should look her up. Also, she is a member of Parliament as part of the Pirate Party!</div>

                    WHAT:<b> "Our Vanishing Civil Liberties," Panel and Forum </b><br>

                    <br>
                    The panelists will address the paramount civil liberty issues of our time, including the chilling effect of the military detention provisions of the NDAA, signed into law by Obama in January 2012. Panelists will also reflect on the increasing government surveillance of its citizens, including whistleblowers, journalists and activists. This profound ongoing shift toward governmental overreach affects not just whistleblowers and journalists: it affects us all. <br>
