On Saturday, October 18, EFF Attorneys Kevin Bankston and Marcia Hofmann join attorney Jon Eisenberg and CNET's Declan McCullagh for a panel "on Post 9/11 Secrecy in Government Intelligence and Law Enforcement" at the California First Amendment Coalition's (CFAC) Free Speech and Open Government Assembly. From the panel description: "The federal government has erected a wall of secrecy around its law enforcement and intelligence activities, especially in the realm of communications surveillance. Panelists will discuss whether the balance between national security interests and first amendment rights is appropriate."

The Assembly takes place on October 17th and 18th at the UC Berkeley School of Journalism.
