This is organized in responose to a decision of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals here which essentially trashes the 1981 Alliance to End Repression/ACLU Consent Decree prohibiting police spying on dissidents. special guest Chip Berlet and commentators Willis and Gage will address the problem of the need to simultaneously fight against hate groups and the ultra-right, while we don't give the state the power to crush legitimate and progressive dissent.
