July 4th: Protest NSA Spying

The recent revelations about the NSA's illegal dragnet spying programs have exposed a government that systematically violates our most basic rights. This Fourth of July, the people are pushing back.

The U.S. government wants to ignore the Fourth Amendment. Let's make that completely impossible by sharing it EVERYWHERE this 4th of July. Declare your independence from NSA spying. Join the protest!

Join this Thunderclap, and on July 4th the Internet will light up the 4th Amendment as if it were fireworks. Organizations like EFF, and awesome websites like Wordpress, Reddit, Namecheap, Imgur, 4chan, Fark, and Cheezburger will all be participating, just like during the SOPA strike. But we need your voice too. Will you join us?

Grassroots Internet users have organized Restore the Fourth street protests all over the U.S. this July 4th to demand an end to warrantless government surveillance. In solidarity with that effort, and building off the energy of the 500,000+ StopWatching.us coalition, the Internet Defense League will raise the "Cat Signal" to amplify the message of those protesting in the streets and make sure that the U.S. Government knows: spying on all of us without probable cause is not an option. It's illegal. It's unconstitutional. It's against everything this country is supposed to be about.

Got a website? You can join the action by putting this message with the 4th Amendment on your site. Get the code, and find out lots more ways to protest on July 4th, at CallForFreedom.org
