RootsAction has been campaigning for CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling for six months. On Wednesday the New York Times published an editorial for the first time expressing any criticism of the awful way he's been treated.

You may have heard the bad news -- Sterling was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.

Many RootsAction supporters have stood by Jeffrey Sterling. Now we need to do more.

For the first time since his indictment more than four years ago, this week the world was able to hear Jeffrey’s voice -- and the voice of his wife Holly -- in an extraordinary short film. This powerful documentary was directed by Oscar-nominee Judith Ehrlich and produced by RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon on behalf of ExposeFacts.

Hundreds of thousands of people have seen the film already. And we want millions more to watch soon.

Please click here to provide support with a donation (tax-deductible for taxpayers in the U.S.) so that the nonprofit ExposeFacts and RootsAction Education Fund can make this film go viral across the USA and around the world.

The CIA really doesn't want Jeffrey Sterling's voice to be heard. We do. It's that simple.

Below you will find links to articles about the CIA's vendetta against Jeffrey Sterling for being a brave whistleblower. As the Sterling Family Fund explains: "Unfortunately for Jeffrey, he became the government's primary target because he had the audacity to do two things: He went through appropriate legal channels to address his concerns about a covert CIA operation." And, "He filed a [racial] discrimination lawsuit against the CIA…"
