The seventh annual Netroots Nation event (#NN12) took place last weekend in Providence, RI. Netroots Nation is an opportunity for the next generation of progressive bloggers to attend and participate in 70 panel discussions and 30 trainings meant to inspire, engage, and educate.
On Saturday, Shahid Buttar, executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, presented as part of the “COINTELPRO 2.0: Surveillance, National Security, and Our Eroding Civil Liberties” panel, which focused on what has changed for civil liberties over the last 10 years and how activists are pushing back.
