New online documentary captures the history
of U.S. government surveillance
American Muslim Voice Executive Director, Samina Faheem Sundas, speaks on the INS Registration in the documentary "Tracked in America: Stories from the History of U.S. Government Surveillance."
Tracked in America is an online documentary launched by the American Civil Liberties Union to mark the most comprehensive effort to examine the history of surveillance in America.
Featured on the site are the personal stories of 25 individuals affected by surveillance and six historians who chronicle surveillance and dissent in America from 1798 to today.
In the documentary’s first-person audio accounts, a range of people describe their experiences with surveillance through different periods of U.S. history: World War I and World War II, the Red Scares of the McCarthy era, the civil rights movement, protests against the Vietnam War, the sanctuary movement of the 1980s, and our current post-9/11 era.
American Muslim Voice is proud to join in the promotion of the site and invites you to visit the free documentary at http://www.trackedinamerica.org/timeline/after_911/intro/
