Left Forum 2012: Islamophobia, the NDAA, and the Attack on Civil Liberties with Steve Downs
IdentiferProgram LF2012 29
DescriptionOver the last decade of the so-called "War on Terror", the Bush and Obama Administrations have used Islamophobia to run roughshod over our civil rights and civil liberties, especially those of Arabs and Muslims. Obama capped this assault that began with the Patriot Act by signing the National Defense Authorization Act, which gives the government the right to indefinitely detain without a trial American citizens charged with terrorism. This panel will expose and analyze this bipartisan assault on our civil liberties and their devastating impact on Arabs and Muslims.
