6e2e4th amendment nsa protests #Restorethe4th: Anti NSA protest LIVE UPDATES

The ‘Restore the Fourth’ campaign was born on Reddit last month and is being supported by Mozilla, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and other US and international press freedom organizations.  “The purpose of the rallies is to spread awareness of and spur political action against unconstitutional spying by the U.S. government,” the campaign stated on its official website. There will also be live protests in dozens of US major cities, which are expected to draw up to 20,000 people in the nation’s larger cities. Press freedom advocates say the protests are crucial because the mainstream media is not adequately covering the NSA leaks and their importance to everyday citizens. Demonstrations are also planned in Canada and the UK.  Pro 4th Amendment-Pirate-Flashmob in front of US Consulate, Munich. #PRISM #SNOWDEN #RestoreThe4th Happy 4th of July! pic.twitter.com/7RflvmFo7a — nottinhill (@nottinhill) July 4, 2013 13:24 GMT: In an article published by the Huffington Post, Co-founder of Fight for the Future Tiffiniy Cheng writes about the “dirty details” that keep piling up from the US government, and encouraged citizens to fight for their Fourth Amendment rights. “Data is power. The government has stolen and can now analyze billions of data to know everything about you — they’re painting a picture of what you do, what you buy, who you call, where you go. This isn’t just about the pizza delivery you called for. It’s not just harmless meta data, as some characterize it. Government agents can use this info to infer whether you have an illness or an addiction, eye your money troubles, or gather what your religious affiliations and political activities are. They can investigate anyone for exercising their First Amendment right, and target people based on the books they read and the websites they visit,” Cheng wrote.  Good morning #NYC and all fellow liberty lovers.

The Supreme Court is going to have to look at this. I will continue to try to lead the fight. I complement all the other privacy groups that are involved and I’m supportive of their efforts to challenge this. We hope to get this to the Supreme Court and let people know that really, with the internet, there is expanded expectation of privacy,” Paul said in the video. 12:34 GMT: 546,803 people have signed a petition written by Stopwatching.us, demanding full disclosure of the NSA surveillance programs. “The revelations about the National Security Agency’s surveillance apparatus, if true, represent a stunning abuse of our basic rights.
