February 11 is 'The Day We Fight Back,' a day of nationally coordinated action against dragnet surveillance that promises to be the largest in history. A broad range of civil liberties organizations are participating.
The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board's report, calling for an end to bulk surveillance collection, confirms that the Pentagon's NSA mass surveillance program, and President Obama's fundamental endorsement of it, does not have a constitutional leg to stand on.
Rather than dismantling the NSA’s unconstitutional mass surveillance programs, or even substantially restraining them, President Obama today has issued his endorsement of them.
The world now recognizes the righteousness of those who used unconventional methods to reveal the extensive criminal activities of the FBI. It is only a matter of time before the same is true of Snowden and the NSA.
Join us and thousands of others by sending an email right now to President Obama and Attorney General Holder demanding that they pardon or drop the charges against whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
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.
