A rousing talk by investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald. He 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.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "imprimatur" ) of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
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: http://ctstopindefinitedetention.com/

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