There are cracks in the Surveillance State. Yesterday, Judge Richard J. Leon of the Federal District Court of D.C. ruled that the NSA's bulk collection of data on all Americans' phone calls likely violates the Constitution.
Additional buses bearing the huge "Thank You Ed Snowden, Say No to the Surveillance State" message will be circulating on Jan. 6, the day Congress comes back into session. This was made possible by the crowd-funding support this project has received from across the country.
Today’s release of documents obtained from whistleblower Edward Snowden is by far the most explosive and most damning of any of the material that Mr. Snowden began to release in June of this year.
Giving Tuesday, set for tomorrow December 3rd, is an alternative way for the American people to use their hard-earned money in support of change, in defense of civil liberties and social and civil rights.
Because of the crowd-funding support this project is receiving, it is starting to take off! We are happy to announce it is now being expanded. We have taken out ads on five additional buses, which will hit the streets of D.C. soon.
In the last week, the Thank You Ed Snowden bus ad campaign has broken into the mass media, receiving coverage in the Washington Post, the City Paper, Politico, the major D.C. news stations, including ABC7, CBS and FOX, as well as international press outlets.
A free-speech advocacy group wants to show its appreciation to Edward Snowden, the former U.S. intelligence contractor who publicly disclosed secret surveillance programs run by the National Security Agency.
The Obama administration decided to declassify many of the documents and release them as part of an effort to counter the demands for change and the wave of public indignation since whistleblower Ed Snowden revealed that the federal government was engaged in a vast spying program targeting the American people and the people of the world.
We are on the verge of rolling out the 'Thank You Ed Snowden' bus ads — help this campaign expand!
Join us in sending a letter to President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder urging them to withdraw the charge of espionage and all other criminal charges against Edward Snowden and to grant him immunity from prosecution for his whistle-blowing and disclosure activities.
