We had a great discussion last night after our screening of the documentary Terms and Conditions May Apply. This is the first of several events we plan to hold about online surveillance and how you can protect your privacy, next one is coming up Nov. 6.
Most people at the screening expressed how they already knew much of their activity was being tracked, but were surprised by the extent of the tracking, and that it’s already been used to stop nonviolent protests before they even happen.
If you’re interested in taking action to preserve your 4th amendment rights, here’s some info about what you can do this Saturday:
Hundreds of thousands of people have spoken out since the major NSA leaks began this June. More than 570,000 people took action at StopWatching.Us by signing our petition to the U.S. Congress. Dozens of members of Congress have introduced bills aimed at reining in the NSA, and hundreds of organizations and companies are uniting to end the NSA’s unconstitutional surveillance.
