Restore the 4th Amendment! Protect Whistleblowers!
Edward Snowden's disclosures of the National Security Agency's extensive spying programs have provoked a global uproar of outrage over the Orwellian, unaccountable, and criminal nature of the emergent total surveillance state. Claiming their behavior is justified in secret
legal proceedings, the US government monitors the Facebook posts, phone calls, text messages, tweets and emails of ordinary Americans. NSA data-mining programs like PRISM and Boundless Informant are clear violations of the protections of personal privacy and freedom from excessive government intrusion enshrined in the Bill of Rights.
The Obama administration has responded to the revelations by extending and expanding their unprecedented, vicious campaign against whistleblowers, criminalizing the very act of revealing the true nature of taxpayer-funded government activities to the press and public.
We say it's time for the people to stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. End the militarization of internet. End the voyeuristic police state which demands access to the most minute, intimate information pertaining to our personal lives yet shrouds it's own behavior behind a veil of secrecy.
End the creeping totalitarianism of this massive corrosion of our legally guaranteed rights
The Rally here in Santa Cruz on Aug. 10 is part of the national resistance movement demanding that the NSA and Executive branch of government, regardless of Party, stop their programs to curtail and infringe upon our fundamental constitutional right to be free from illegal searches and seizures. Join us on Aug 10th as part of the national movement to Restore the Fourth.. Stand up for civil liberty and human rights now, while we still can!
