On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the US Patriot Act, StopWatching.us a coalition of more than 100 public advocacy organizations and companies, plus celebrities such as John Cusack, Evangeline Lilly, Mark Ruffalo and Wil Weaton willl be holding a Rally Against Mass Surveillance in Washington, D.C. and handing over petitions with more than a half a million signatures to Congress to remind them that they work for us — and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer.
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.
