Let the Sunshine In

This week is designated "Sunshine Week," an effort to keep the government from closing down our right to know what's going on. It is organized by a group of nationally respected organizations that include:

American Association of Law Libraries
American Library Association
American Society of Newspaper Editors
Sunshine Week Association of Research Libraries
Coalition of Journalists for Open Government
League of Women Voters
National Freedom of Information Coalition
Special Libraries Association

In honor of Sunshine week artist Matt Wuekrer designed this flash animation on the alarming rise of government secrecy during the Bush years on everything from the war to climate change.
