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?
