By ACLU of RI on February 2, 2016
Join the ACLU of Rhode Island and the Brown University Chapter of ACLU-RI on Thursday, February 4, for a free screening of Citizenfour and a discussion of surveillance and privacy in the digital age.
Academy Award-winning documentary CITIZENFOUR follows whistleblower Edward Snowden as he shares for the first time the classified National Security Agency documents that would expose the U.S. government’s illegal and indiscriminate mass surveillance programs. The camera rolls as Snowden meets with journalist Glenn Greenwald to explain the extent of the federal government’s dragnet surveillance, and then handles the political and personal ramifications of the leak.
Watch the story behind the headlines and learn why Snowden, an ACLU client, wanted to protect the privacy rights of all.
