Democracy Now! interview with Edward Snowden
Democracy Now! interview with Edward Snowden
Contribution: $75.00

Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government's system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down. In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it. Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, Permanent Record is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online - a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the Internet's conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, Permanent Record is a crucial memoir of our digital age and destined to be a classic. more info

On Fire
For more than a decade, Naomi Klein has documented the movement of the climate crisis from future threat to a burning emergency. She has been among the first to make the case for what is now called the Green New Deal – a vision for transforming our economies to battle climate breakdown and rampant inequality at the same time. In our era of rising seas and rising hate, she argues that only this kind of bold, roots-up action has a chance of rousing us to fight for our lives while there is still time.

On Fire’s long-form essays, based on her extensive research and reporting, show Klein at her most prophetic and philosophical, investigating the climate crisis not only as a profound political challenge but as a spiritual and imaginative one as well. Delving into the clash between ecological time and our culture of “perpetual now”; the soaring history of rapid human change in the face of grave threats; rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of “climate barbarism” and more, this is a rousing call to transformation – and a dire warning about what awaits if we fail to act.

In Defense of Julian Assange - Book
In Defense of Julian Assange - Book
Contribution: $150.00

After being forcibly removed from the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange is now
in a high security prison in London where he faces extradition to the United
States and imprisonment for the rest of his life.

The charges Assange faces are a major threat to press freedom. James Goodale,
who represented the New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case, commented:
“The charge against Assange for ‘conspiring’ with a source is the most
dangerous I can think of with respect to the First Amendment in all my years
representing media organizations.”

It is critical now to build support for Assange and prevent his delivery into
the hands of the Trump administration. That is the urgent purpose of this book.
A wide range of distinguished contributors, many of them in original pieces,
here set out the story of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, the importance of their
work, and the dangers for us all in the persecution they face. In Defense of
Julian Assange is a vivid, vital intervention into one of the most important
political issues of our day.
