Glenn Greenwald speaking at the Lincoln Center April 8

American journalist, lawyer and author Glenn Greenwald will be at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center at 7 p.m. April 8 to present his talk titled “The U.S. Surveillance State in the Age of Fear,” as well as to promote his book, “No Place to Hide.” The student organization Finding Racial and Economic Equality, ASCSU and community organizations are hosting the event.

While Greenwald was working as a columnist for The Guardian, he published a controversial story on how the National Security Agency required Verizon Wireless to allow access to their phone records, which in turn revealed the government’s hidden motives of domestic surveillance.

Greenwald has also worked with Edward Snowden, a former contractor of the United States National Security Agency, who provided him with classified documents.

For the student organization Finding Racial and Economic Equality (FREE), it was relatively easy to contact Greenwald.

“We pursued him through the summer, and we contacted his publicist,” said Desiree Fisk, president of FREE at Colorado State.“This is a follow up to last spring when we had Jeremy Scahill here.”

Greenwald will also be doing a book signing after he speaks. The free event is based on a first-come-first serve basis.
