Stop Government Secrecy
Watch the Sunshine week webcast on government secrecy from March 19. A robust discussion was had on what the government is hiding and what you can do about it. Although the event is over, you can invite friends to watch and learn about new online resources for uncovering information and how to take action.
Withholding presidential records...deleting White House emails…delaying FOIA requests…firing whistleblowers… copiously classifying documents…secretly detaining “enemy combatants”…blocking government workers from testifying before Congress…
The Bush Administration does not believe in an open democratic government. It has used one ruse after another to keep information from the public -- from “national security” to “executive privilege” to plain old stonewalling.
Are you fed up? Take action!
We are coming together with print, broadcast and online news media, civic groups, libraries, non-profits, schools and individuals interested in the public's right to know, to call on the federal government to end its campaign of secrecy.
