How Gov’t Silences Whistleblowers with Espionage Act
We Are Change CT breaks down the Espionage Act and how it’s used by the U.S. Gov’t to Silence Whistleblowers. We discuss the latest news involving General David Petraeus who recently pled guilty to leaking classified information and how the U.S. Government has developed a two-tiered justice system for leaks, where people like General Petraeus gets no jail time, meanwhile Whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, Thomas Drake, Stephen Kim & many others are persecuted & prosecuted for exposing illegality. We also discuss the implications the Espionage Act will have on Journalism & future Whistleblowers.

As we establish citizens groups throughout the country and world, we wish to inspire a community of truth-seekers and peacemakers through creative campaigns with a commitment of non-violence. We Are Change CT are not so much a group but an idea, an idea that “We the People” are the vehicles of these “ideas” and of the freedoms, liberties, and truths we are seeking all across the globe. An idea that captures the spirits of our forefathers who just desired freedom; that together, as residents of this planet, we grow like a snowball of truth and justice rolling down a mountain of tyranny growing bigger and stronger, recognizing the beauty in our differences and the diverseness of each other, but at the same time strengthening our cause because we learn and grow from each others individuality. Then as we learn to come together, that as one, you, me, him, her, us…will realize that WE ARE CHANGE.
