In the wake of September 11, civil liberties are under attack, racial profiling is acquiring political respectability, and journalists, educators, and entertainers are being harassed for criticizing the Bush administration and for raising questions about America's role in the world.
As the United States wages war, critical voices are more important than ever. On November 27, independent journalists, activists, and others will ask themselves how they can defend civil liberties, report the real news in the face of misinformation, and promote a national conversation about the war.
