EFF – Stop Watching Us
Stop Watching Us
Statement by Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden just released this statement in support of the Rally Against Mass Surveillance happening this Saturday in Washington, D.C.:
In the last four months, we’ve learned a lot about our government.
We’ve learned that the U.S. intelligence community secretly built a system of pervasive surveillance. Today, no telephone in America makes a call without leaving a record with the NSA. Today, no internet transaction enters or leaves America without passing through the NSA’s hands. Our representatives in Congress tell us this is not surveillance. They’re wrong.
Now it’s time for the government to learn from us. On Saturday, the ACLU, EFF, and the rest of the StopWatching.Us coalition are going to D.C. Join us in sending the message: Stop Watching Us.
You can RSVP for the event using the form to the right or at the top of this page.
We have a great lineup of speakers, including:
- Congressman Justin Amash
- Former senior NSA executive and whistleblower Thomas Drake
- Bruce Schneier, internationally renowned security technologist
