Stand Up For Truth: An International Week to Support Whistleblowing


Stand Up For Truth: An International Week to Support Whistleblowing

June 1-7, 2015 —

Thomas Drake, Dan Ellsberg, Jesselyn Radack, Coleen Rowley, and Norman Solomon are off to Europe for these events. They will deliver this petition in Berlin. Big news there, and it’s not too late to add your name and comments. Anywhere in the world, you can participate in webcasts with whistleblowers and their supporters:

  1. Former State Dept. official Matthew Hoh and author and RootsAction campaigner David Swanson — 9 pm ET (Eastern Time, GMT -5) June 2

  2. Journalist, activist, and lawyer Trevor Timm and investigative journalist Tim Shorrock — 9 pm ET June 3

  3. Director of media for the Institute for Public Accuracy Sam Husseini and author and law professor Marjorie Cohn — 9 pm ET June 4

  4. NSA whistleblower William Binney and NSA whistleblower Kirk Wiebe — 8 pm ET June 5

  5. Media critic and RootsAction cofounder Jeff Cohen and Author and communications professor Robert McChesney — 9 pm ET June 5

  6. Journalist Kevin Gosztola and EPA whistleblower Marsha Coleman-Adebayo — 5 pm ET June 6

The webcasts will each last 60 minutes. To listen and type in questions, just point your web browser here (bookmark it now) and turn up your volume. Everyone is encouraged to use the webcast and to type in questions there. It requires a computer and will not work on a phone. If you can’t use a computer, there are a very limited number of lines on which you can phone in. Just call 1-844-472-8237 (toll-free in U.S.)

You can also ask these whistleblowers and truth tellers questions beforehand or during the webcasts by tweeting them to @Roots_Action. The webcasts are sponsored by RootsAction Education Fund and ExposeFacts. Bill Binney and Marcy Wheeler are speaking in Chicago on June 2nd, and Binney in Minneapolis/St. Paul on June 3rd. Area residents can join this awesome art creation in Los Angeles on June 6th. Find an event near you, or create an event for June 1-7 or later. We’ll help you promote it.
