Nancy Pelosi; Stop NSA's spying on US!
Date Wednesday September 04
Time 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location Details
90 7th Street, between Mission and Market
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorArt Persyko
On Wednesday, September 4, noon, @ the New Federal Building, 7th and Mission, in San Francisco, please join the SF 99 % Coalition and other concerned citizens to tell Nancy Pelosi: “Stop NSA's spying on US! & Live up to your oath to defend the Constitution, including the 4th Amendment!". Banners and signs provided, or bring your own. Please attend and please spread the word!

Background: On July 24, 2013, House of Reps Democratic "leader" Nancy Pelosi was THE key to pushing the excellent Amash-Conyers "Defund the NSA phone records collection" down to a narrow defeat. She also voted NO, one of only 2 congress members from the SF Bay Area delegation (Thompson was the other) to vote against this first "stop buying spying" legislation following Ed Snowden's revelations. Pelosi is completely out of step with her SF constituents on this.

On September 4th, a small delegation will also go to Pelosi's office to ask whether she is representing San Francisco or the National Security State.

And please call Pelosi's office between now and then, to let her know that you disagree with her vote and actions to defeat the Amash-Conyers amendment. Her phone numbers are: (202) 225-4965 in DC; and (415) 556-4862 in SF. Tell her to abide by her oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution, including the 4th Amendment; and to stop funding the broad NSA surveillance of everyone who lives in this country!

Would you consider including the Syrian attack in the demands of this protest? Pelosi's views on US intervention and Obama's decision to delegate the war decision to Congress make this an urgent issue.
