Hell No: Your Right to Dissent in 21st-Century America by Michael Ratner, Margaret Ratner Kunstler

In the Age of Terrorism, the United States has become a much more dangerous place-for activists and dissenters, whose First Amendment rights are all too frequently abridged by the government.

In Hell No, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the country's leading public interest law organization offers a timely report on government attacks on dissent and protest in the United States, along with a readable and essential guide for activists, teachers, grandmothers, and anyone else who wants to oppose government policies and actions.

Hell No explores the current situation of attacks upon and criminalization of dissent arid protest, from the surveillance of activists to the disruption of demonstrations, from the labeling of protestors as "terrorists" to the jailing of those the government claims are giving "material support" to its perceived enemies. Offering detailed, hands-on advice on everything from "sneak and peek" searches to "Can the Government Monitor My Text Messages?" and what to do "If an Agent Knocks," Hell No lays out several key responses that every person should know in order to protect themselves from government surveillance and interference with their rights.

Concluding with the controversial 2008 Mukasey FBI Guidelines, which currently regulate the government's domestic response to dissent, Hell No is an indispensable tool in the effort to give free speech and protest meaning in a post-9/11 world.
