Voices from Silence


It’s a long URL but it leads the searcher to a pivotal report describing the impact of 9/11 on the lives of immigrants, refugees and religious minorities in Minnesota. “Voices from Silence: Personal Accounts of the Long-Term Impact of 9/11” was issued last week by Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights. It’s a call for attention to freedom of information, the sine qua non of a democracy — and a freedom eroding in the rush to focus public attention and resources on national security, counter-terrorism and immigration.
