Dissenter Weekly: What Biden Could Do To Support The First Amendment

Plus, whistleblower at construction site for Amazon fulfillment center warns of safety hazards that may cause lung damage to contracted workers



In this edition of “Dissenter Weekly,” host and Shadowproof editor Kevin Gosztola highlights a story in Texas involving a whistleblower who warns of safety hazards at a construction site for an Amazon fulfillment center.

Kevin also covers a snippet from OMB Director nominee Neera Tanden’s Senate confirmation hearing, where she was asked about the problem of nuclear waste.

The show concludes with some consideration of what President Joe Biden’s administration could do if it truly wanted to support the First Amendment. For starters, Biden could abandon the political prosecution against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
