NSA Protests Start Today

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has launched a campaign to fight back against NSA surveillance. This is something that affects the privacy of everyone on the internet, even non-US citizens, so its important to get involved. Even gaming “celebrities” like Markus “Notch” Persson, creator of Minecraft, and Tabletop presenter Wil Wheaton have thrown their support behind the movement.

If you want to help, here’s what the EFF suggests you do.

In the US? Call Congress today.

Dial 202-552-0505 or click here to enter your phone number and have our call tool connect you

Privacy Info: This telephone calling service is operated by Twilio and will connect you to your representatives. Information about your call, including your phone number and the time and length of your call, will be collected by Twilio and subject to Twilio’s privacy policy.

Calling Congress takes just five minutes and is the most effective action you can take right now to let your elected officials know that mass surveillance must end.

Here’s what you should say:

I’d like Senator/Representative __ to support and co-sponsor H.R. 3361/S. 1599, the USA Freedom Act. I would also like you to oppose S. 1631, the so-called FISA Improvements Act. Moreover, I’d like you to work to prevent the NSA from undermining encryption standards and to protect the privacy rights of non-Americans.

Outside the US? Take action now.

Mass spying affects all of us worldwide. Demand an end to mass surveillance by signing the 13 Principles petition.

More ways to get involved

After you have called Congress or signed the 13 Principles, share this action as widely as possible.
