False Terrorism Accusations by the US Government

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2008/03/31/Agency_in_Surveilled_Space-Who_is_Watching Former Human Rights Watch Fellow Anjana Malhotra discusses two cases of individuals falsely accused of terrorist activities by the United States government. ----- A Roundtable Discussion of Agency in Surveilled Space: who is watching, who is being watched, who decides which spaces are visible to the camera and which are effectively invisible, off-limits to authorities. The panelists will examine how engineers, artists, and activists intervene in surveillance systems to subvert, invert, and redefine these relationships, and how the principle of "sousveillance" - meaning surveillance from "below," or watching the watchers - applies. It features artists and engineers who collaborate to produce software and hardware applications that access and visualize data usually obscured from public view; artists whose projects have questioned the rhetoric of surveillance by intervening more playfully in the expected aesthetics or power dynamics; and activists who monitor post-9/11 surveillance by intelligence agencies and its effects on immigrant and dissenting communities - The New School Anjana Malhotra is a human rights lawyer and former fellow with Human Rights Watch.
