An anti-NSA surveillance nationwide protest and online campaign is launching on Thursday. It aims to restore the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights, which protects US citizens from “unreasonable searches and seizures.”
The ‘Restore the Fourth’ campaign was born on Reddit last month and is being supported by Mozilla, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and other US and international press freedom organizations.
“The purpose of the rallies is to spread awareness of and spur political action against unconstitutional spying by the U.S. government,” the campaign stated on its official website.
There will also be live protests in dozens of US major cities, which are expected to draw up to 20,000 people in the nation’s larger cities.
