Demonstrations planned for Saturday, October 26th, against NSA spying, and deliberately coinciding with the 12th anniversary of the signing of the Patriot Act.  More here, along with the video below:


And this video uploaded September 26th:

Occupy Wall Street reports that the Stop Watching Us Coalition includes a politically diverse range of  more than 100 public advocacy organizations and companies demanding that Congress investigate the full extent of the NSA's spying programs.  A full list of those groups here.  Thomas Drake and Daniel Choi are scheduled to speak at the Washington D.C. rally.

The demonstrations also come on the tail of a train eavesdropping incident in which activist Tom Maizzie tweeted the coincidentally overheard phone conversation of former NSA director and surveillance advocate Michael Hayden.  The tweets went viral and the story was picked up by numerous press outlets.

And, RT reports the NSA site suddenly offline Friday with Anonymous affiliates suggesting they may be responsible.

The Saturday protest is slated for Washington D.C. with satellite events reportedly planned for other parts of the country.  

Further information at #StopWatchingUs, along with mention of a Chicago rally.  Buses are planned from NYC and Philadelphia and carpools here.
