Crowds Gather for 'Restore the Fourth' Rallies

Public opposition to NSA surveillance


“Stop the surveillance! Restore the fourth amendment!”

It’s the largest online protest since SOPA. And perhaps an even larger offline protest, as protestors galvanized by the Restore the Fourth movement are using Independence Day to demand their government stop spying on them. The NSA’s PRISM online surveillance program was revealed NSA contractor Edward Snowden just weeks ago, which said that U.S. companies such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Apple were sharing private data with the NSA about Americans and foreigners.
