Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the many faces of Anonymous. Gabriella Coleman, who recently penned a book about the group, looks at the evolution of a group she describes as a 'political accident', changing from trolling to a serious activist group influencing events from the Arab Spring to the Wikileaks Cablegate affair. Christina McAnea talks about We look at the latest fiasco the Department for Work and Pensions as they are accused of planting fake tweets to push Universal Credit, & replace one scandal-hit contractor with another to assess disability benefits.

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast- Misidentifications Resulting in Wrongful Convictions

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast- Misidentifications Resulting in Wrongful Convictions | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an innocent person. Our Special Guests tonight are Prof. Laura O'Sullivan, Univ. of Missouri - Kansas City & Kay Lincoln, who have joined forces to fight against the wrongful conviction of Rodney Lincoln in St. Louis, MO. He was accused, convicted and sentenced in 1982 for murdering a mother and her two little girls. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org. For more information, about A Just Cause and to Donate to the IRP6 legal defense fund, visit www.a-justcause.com.
