Rally against mass surveillance, DC, Oct. 26--'Stop Watching Us'
Boing Boing ^ | 9/26/13 | Xeni Jardin

The team behind Stop Watching Us says:

"Since the Snowden leaks started, more than 569,000 people from all walks of life have signed the StopWatching.us petition telling the U.S. Congress that we want them to rein in the NSA. On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the US Patriot Act, we're taking the next step and holding the largest rally yet against NSA surveillance. We’ll be handing the half-million petitions to Congress to remind them that they work for us -- and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer."...

I don't think this will be enough to remind the buffoons on the Hill that they work for us, but it's a start.

I can protest from the comfort of my home.

All I do is stand a protest sign in front of my Webcam. They’ve already hacked it.

The hundreds of facial recognition cameras will be running and recording non-stop.

Great opportunity for the NSA to try out that new facial recognition software.

Importantly, it’s not just the NSA, though it is central to the problem. The American public are being spied on by the FBI, the CIA, the DHS, the Just Us Department, the Drug Enforcement Agency, through the widespread abuse of HIPPA to access our medical records, and by numerous other federal and state agencies and corporations.

Seriously, so many agencies, interests, and corporations are tapping into our lives that its amazing that the Internet still works.

“Look, I can’t hear the party I’m phoning! Would half of you who are listening in on our conversation please stop, so we can at least hear each other?”

It’s like living in a damned E.F. Hutton brokerage ad:
