Dropping in on the NSA

As Congress considers dozens of bills to curtail NSA domestic surveillance, the grassroots firestorm opposing dragnet spying has continued to escalate. Coalitions across the country have employed creative tactics to display visual  dissent, reaching beyond the incremental reforms considered by Congress and calling for the National Security Agency (NSA) to be closed entirely.

On December 6, grassroots activists from across the DC / MD / VA area dropped banners reading "Save America. Close the NSA" off a highway overpass outside the NSA headquarters in Ft. Meade, MD. Participants represented a broad coalition of groups including BORDC, Code Pink, the Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition, and Restore the Fourth.

With Bill of Rights Day approaching on December 15, and national media outlets already focused on surveillance abuses, there has never been a better time to raise your voice!

How will you stand up for your rights?

I'm pleased to see others do understand.

Do anything that is disobedient to what they are trying to do and if enough do it we will get back out bill of rights. Be benign as these currently folks are just misguided patriots.

Make them start doing their job the American way which is in a way that protects out freedom, liberty and rights and not the opposite. The hard way is the American way.

They are doing thing similar to the Stacci and Gestopo which lead to nothing good. Take the Khmer Period in Cambodia, the Nazi concentration camps, the violence of idi amin. They are all modern day examples of innocent information given. They need to be reigned in.
