Longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader organized a conference at Yale Law School yesterday to discuss issues related to whistleblowers and what he called the national security state. He was joined by two lawyers who represent NSA leaker Edward Snowden and his family.
For five decades, Ralph Nader has spoken out against injustices he’s seen in the commercial world and in government. The longtime consumer advocate and sometime presidential candidate is a lifelong resident of Winsted, CT and still lives there today. And today, he’s organized and is moderating a panel discussion at Yale University entitled “Showdown for Democracy: Lawyers, Whistleblowers and the National Security State.” He spoke with WSHU's Craig LeMoult.
