Wayne Brittenden’s Counterpoint - Civil Liberties
A new addition to the programme from Wayne Brittenden, who has been Radio New Zealand's correspondent in several capital cities over the years. He will be giving us fresh insights into a wide variety of topics of national and international concern, followed by Chris Laidlaw's discussion of the issue with guests. Wayne is discussing civil liberties - timely in the light of the Julian Assange and Bradley Manning cases. Guests: Thomas Beagle from the New Zealand website TechLiberty; and civil liberties lawyer Stephen Rohde, chair of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation in Southern California.
