A note from Jess Hemerly, Public Policy Manager from Google – Google Hangout on Government Surveillance starts NOW!


I’m about to start a Hangout On Air with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the Open Technology Institute. We’ll be discussing the current state of play on the road to real surveillance reform.

I’ll be speaking to Rainey Reitman, activism director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Robyn Greene, policy counsel for the Open Technology Institute.

We’ve got a lot to talk about, from major activity in Congress — the USA Freedom Act in the House and a proposal to reauthorize Section 215 in the Senate — as well as a Federal court decision that has serious implications for bulk collection.

Let’s get started! Tune into the Hangout On Air right now:
