The Circle of HOPE (2018): "Barrett Brown Onstage Interview" (Download)
Saturday, July 21, 2018: 11:00 am (Vaughan): Writer and anarchist activist Barrett Brown was prosecuted and sentenced to 63 months in federal prison and nearly a million dollars restitution after posting a link to a URL where stolen emails of private intelligence agencies were already online. He will be interviewed onstage by award-winning journalist Spencer Ackerman, who is currently a senior national security correspondent for The Daily Beast. This freeform interview will cover a variety of topics, likely to include Brown’s alleged past connections with Anonymous and LulzSec and their reported exfiltration and sharing with WikiLeaks of a huge trove of stolen emails and other sensitive info from private intelligence agencies HBGary, Infragard, and Endgame Systems. This data exposed collusion between U.S. government law enforcement and intelligence agencies with private sector intelligence agencies that have no public oversight. An audience Q&A will follow.
