Dissenter Weekly: Report Shows Whistleblower Protection Laws Often Fail Whistleblowers—Globally
Plus, two Congolese whistleblowers reveal themselves and National Guard members deployed to Capitol Hill are being fed raw or undercooked food
In this edition of “Dissenter Weekly,” host and Shadowproof editor Kevin Gosztola highlights an important report from the Government Accountability Project and the International Bar Association on the state of whistleblower protection laws in 37 countries.
Kevin also covers two Congolese whistleblowers who revealed their identities at great risk to themselves. They disclosed information related to a money laundering network in the Democratic Republic of Congo that is tied to the exploitation of resources and minerals.
During the final part of the show, he discusses a report on the raw or undercooked food that members of the National Guard are being fed while deployed at the Capitol Hill building.
Our overtime segment is spent talking about a freelance report published at Shadowproof, which calls attention to a nationwide movement to unionize newsrooms or media organizations.
