People are talking about DU activism? Oct. 26. Be there.

October 26th, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
A Rally Against Mass Surveillance


StopWatching.us is a coalition of more than 100 public advocacy organizations and companies from across the political spectrum. We came together in June 2013 to demand the U.S. Congress investigate the full extent of the NSA's spying programs. Go here to read our letter to U.S. Congress demanding accountability and reform.


Folks, this is the real deal. We need a million or more in DC to shut the surveillance state down. The names in the coalition are venerable: ACLU, EFF, ALA (Yes! Don't Fuck With Librarians!) and others. Including FreedomWorks which is a strange bedfellow indeed.

1. Are there rallies planned in other cities across the Country?

 

DC's nice, but kinda far.

2. They mention viewing parties?



Not a lot of detail yet at the link, but they also say live music.

4. Thank you!

I can't believe with all the bitching about activism lately, this is the second thread about this rally that has dropped like a rock.

But, then again, I can post more threads.

6. Surely the timing was a little off. Can't believe DU suddenly went laid-back about NSA

or?

5. W.T.F. DU!

Have you forgotten about the fucking NSA?

Is this not sexy enough?

Maybe I need a more controversial headline?

Thanks for the thread, hootinholler.

10. Although nobody I know (including journalists) reads the Post anymore, so... too bad since

Their journalist broke the story but they don't have the balls to oppose mass surveillance since it has benefited Woodward & co. immensely.

ps -- k/r
