STOP SPYING ON US! RALLY TO HALT NSA SURVEILLANCE
FRIDAY AUGUST 9 @ 11AM
500 POYDRAS Hale Boggs Federal Building, New Orleans
“There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”
— George Orwell, 1984
WE THE PEOPLE will ask Senator Landrieu to:
- Restore The Fourth Amendment
- Support legislation to revoke the NSA’s authorization to conduct mass surveillance of US and foreign citizens.
- Support The Amash-Conyers Amendment that limits NSA surveillance.
- Halt NSA Surveillance! – Defund the NSA
- Demand the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs.
As a member of The Senate Appropriations Committee, Mary Landrieu must refuse to support the sanctions that committee proposed imposing on countries that support Snowden.
