Short Description Stop Surveillance
Full Description

Friend,

This afternoon we held the biggest rally against NSA surveillance yet. Over 3000 people descended on Washington, DC to demand that our government stop the lying and stop the spying.

This rally was just the beginning – we are launching a sustained campaign to put an end to the NSA’s unconstitutional mass spying program. The folks in DC know we can fill their inboxes with letters, their voicemails with calls. And we will. But we need to make it so everywhere they turn they are confronted with the fact that the American people want mass surveillance to stop.

That means paying for some incredible ads and billboards that we have in the works. And it means bringing this fight directly to their doorsteps. In the past few months, we’ve sent activists to NSA defenders’ district town hall meetings in Rhode Island and Maryland – forcing them to explain exactly why they don’t care about their constituents’ rights. We need your support so that we can do that in every district, in every state.

Join Demand Progress as a monthly donor and give us the sustained support we need to launch a long-term campaign against NSA surveillance.

The Snowden leaks have opened our eyes. The NSA is corrupting security to break the fabric of the Internet. The overreaching surveillance creates a climate of fear, chills free speech and violates our basic human rights — and it operates without any meaningful oversight.

We’re developing a plan for a network of rapid-responders, who can take immediate action as soon as new revelations – and there will be more – come to light. There will be more details to come, but as it stands, we need dedicated funding to make the project a reality.

Become a monthly sustainer and help us ensure we’re prepared for the next leak.

It’s really simple: the NSA wasn’t a major topic of conversation last year because until June, no one knew for sure that our government had been lying to us for years. Being a monthly sustainer gives us the sustained, grassroots support we need to build a campaign to win, and enables us to respond immediately to new revelations and the unexpected events to come. 

Thanks for standing with us,

Charlie

P.S. We held the rally as part of the StopWatching.Us coalition – a group of more than 100 groups from across the political spectrum. We heard from speakers like Rep. Justin Amash, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, and Bruce Schneier – all of whom were united in saying this spying is wrong. Share this image and let everyone know you stand with thousands against NSA spying.
