On the Stop Watching Us website, an announcement for a rally against mass surveillance to take place on October 26th, 2013 in Washington D.C.. The rally is supported by an impressive number of people, groups and organizations.
The recent NSA revelations have laid it all out: The NSA is watching us online and on our phones. The NSA has corrupted security and cryptography, undermining the fabric of the Internet. Its overreaching surveillance is creating a climate of fear, chills free speech, and violates our basic human rights and it operates without any meaningful oversight.
But a movement is building to change all this. And we're about to take the next step.
On Saturday, October 26 the 12th anniversary of the signing of the USA PATRIOT Act thousands of people from across the political spectrum will unite in Washington, D.C. to proclaim: Enough is enough. Stop watching us.
