Major rally in DC and throughout the country to stop NSA and corporate spying. If you can't get to dc there will be at least a viewing party here.

More NSA revelations. Help us get thousands more to D.C. on Oct. 26.

Dear Friend,

Last night the Washington Post reported that the NSA is collecting millions of contact lists from our personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts.[1] This is just the latest in a series of revelations about the government’s overreaching surveillance programs.

We know you’re outraged, and that’s why you are joining us in D.C. at the Rally Against Mass Surveillance on Oct. 26.

But we need to get even more people there. Can you help?

Got 30 seconds? Share the rally with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Got 2 minutes? Send an email to your contacts and let them know you’ll be in DC for this historic event.

Got 30 minutes? Make a couple phone calls for us! We need to reach out to other people and urge them to attend as well. Click here to start making calls.

Thanks for your help.

See you soon,

Josh, Ben, Charlie, Mary Alice, Katherine and the rest of the StopWatching.Us coalition.

P.S: If you need help getting to D.C., you’re in luck. We’ve arranged for buses to take activists straight from several major cities. Click here to learn more and to reserve your seat on the bus.
