It has recently been exposed that the majority, if not all, of U.S. telephone calls are monitored by the NSA (National Security Agency) and have been for seven years, that the U.S. government is monitoring emails through a secret NSA program called PRISM, and that Edward Snowden is the whistleblower that made these revelations possible
Edward Snowden told The Guardian, “Even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’re being watched and recorded. And the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently by orders of magnitude…they can use this system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made, every friend you’ve ever discussed something with and attack you on that basis…to derive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer.”
So far the predominant response from Washington has been to DEFEND this systematic invasion of our privacy rather than to call for an end to these abuses. President Barack Obama has said Americans must tolerate “modest encroachments” on privacy in the name of national security. Both MN senators, Klobuchar and Franken, have told the press that they knew of the NSA surveillance, aren’t concerned, and don’t see it as spying on Americans!
Speak out! Call Your Senators!
We need to stand with Snowden and demand an end to the NSA surveillance on the public!
Join with us at a picket at Senator Klobuchar’s office and call Minnesota’s senators to say that they should use their positions on the Senate Judiciary Committee to demand an end to the daily and systematic violation of our privacy!
