EFF is a proud co-sponsor of "Resisting Government Secrecy in a Time of Terrorism," a two-day conference taking place this Friday, Oct. 8th, and Saturday, Oct. 9th, at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
The conference, presented by the California First Amendment Coalition (CFAC), features a key-note speech by acclaimed investigative reporter Seymour "Sy" Hersh and panel discussions with a number of experts exploring a wide range of topics, including "leak" investigations under the Homeland Security law and media coverage of the Iraq war. EFF's Kevin Bankston will moderate a panel on the Supreme Court's past term and its implications for national security and citizen's access to information.
While there is a registration fee for the conference, admittance to the keynote speech is free. To check out the keynote, come to UC Berkeley's Pauley Hall on Friday at 7:45 p.m. PT, right after the presidential debate. Conference attendees will be able to watch the televised debate at 6:00 p.m. PT at a reception at the Graduate School of Journalism.
We hope you can join us!
