Bill Moyers On How The FBI And Local Police Have Been Spying On Protesters

This is from the March 5, 2004 program of Bill Moyers NOW.

Ashcroft re-wrote those rules after 911. It shows footage demonstrating that even Republicans like Representative James Sensenbrenner (Chair of the Judiciary Committee) say the new rules go too far in restricting our civil liberties.
