On May 20, 2009, four men from the impoverished and largely African-American city of Newburgh, NY, were apprehended for an alleged terror plot. They had no history of violence or terrorist ties. What would make them do this?
THE NEWBURGH STING, a new documentary film, delves deeply into one of the many cases across the country where people were allegedly drawn into a plot with extreme consequences.
We need to raise awareness around how the government is truly using surveillance in America today. Help us start a national conversation, and shift public and political discourse around this vital American issue today.
