Glenn Greenwald
on Civil Liberties

A rousing talk by investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Greenwald explains what "civil liberties" are and why they're worth fighting for. Then he describes the government's systematic destruction of Americans' civil liberties since 9-11-2001. He shows how they got away with it, what the consequences are (all of them bad), and how the people can fight back.

Recorded live in New Britain, Connecticut, on December 8, 2012.

Many thanks to John Schwenk, who recorded the speech on location.

Greenwald spoke at a conference on civil liberties--"An Injury to One Is an Injury to All"--organized by the Connecticut Coalition to Stop Indefinite Detention.

I snipped out a small amount of the speech to fit our timeslot.

Glenn Greenwald practiced civil-rights and Constitutional law. He is currently a columnist for The Guardian (London).
