Fwd: Restore the 4th D.C. Update: Announcing a National March!
-----Restore the Fourth D.C.UpdateRestore the Fourth DC members:
It's been quite a week for NSA watchers. Obama remarked on CNN that his administration must "do a better job" of justifying NSA surveillance programs, and thanks to a request made by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) under the Freedom of Information Act, the federal government disclosed a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) opinion from 2011 which held that the NSA has engaged in unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.
Locally, there are several upcoming events of interest to Restore the Fourth DC members:
- On Saturday, October 26, RTF DC will host a national march against NSA surveillance in conjunction with the American Civil Liberties Union, StopWatchingUs, Demand Progress, and other groups. The march will be bracketed by visits to members of Congress on Friday and Monday, and educational events and speakers on Sunday. We will need lots of volunteers to help make this event a success, so if you are interested in getting more involved, read on!
- On Friday, September 27, a screening of the film Terms and Conditions May Apply will be held on Capitol Hill. The film takes a look at how much information about us is collected as we use the internet (spoiler alert: it's a lot!) and what corporations and the government do with our data. This event will be hosted by Demand Progress, one of RTF DC's coalition partners. We will send out more details as they are available.
- Every Thursday at 7pm, Restore the Fourth is now holding a weekly meeting / happy hour at The Codmother (1334 U St NW, Washington, DC). Please join us!
