Dissenter Weekly: British Oil Industry Whistleblower Taken By Police To Psychiatric Hospital



In this edition of “Dissenter Weekly,” host and Shadowproof editor Kevin Gosztola covers a British oil industry whistleblower in Croatia who was taken by police to a psychiatric hospital against his will.

He highlights an exceptional report from Julia Carrie Wong at the Guardian that profiled Facebook whistleblower Sophie Zhang and amplified her revelations related to Facebook's inaction when suspicious accounts in Honduras, Azerbaijan, Ecuador, etc, were brought to the attention of executives.

Later in the show, Kevin talks about two stories involving police in Honolulu and Washington, D.C. He concludes with an update on a U.S. Geological Survey whistleblower, who faced retaliation but was recently restored to their position at the Seattle-based Western Fisheries Research Center.
