On this edition of the “Dissenter Weekly,” host and Shadowproof editor Kevin Gosztola highlights a report from the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) that showed dissent channels in federal government agencies aren’t leading to changes and most employees see them as risky.

“The report found that the existing channels at the State Department and other agencies are underutilized, and that the systems don’t provide sufficient incentives or protections for employees,” POGO declared. 

Later, Gosztola covers two whistleblower cases—one involving a prison whistleblower in New Mexico and one involving two officers in the Miami Beach Police Department. Both faced retaliation after they objected to violence.
