Fourth of July Prompts Fourth Amendment Protests, Anti-NSA Spying Rallies

by at . Comments

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

- Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

This Fourth of July, people in more than 100 U.S. cities are taking a stand on behalf of their Fourth Amendment right to privacy - and against NSA spying.

Happy 4th of July, NSA!

Whether you view him as a traitor or hero, Edward Snowden confirmed what many suspected: The Internet is being used as a surveillance system.

The NSA uses websites every day to track our activity. While the NSA swears it does not cross ethical lines, where will this stop? And how would we know?

To online privacy advocates, it's too slippery a slope.

On July 4th, people are demonstrating across the country, while the Internet Defense League and more than 30,000 websites will join an online protest.

Where do you stand on the issue?

Do you believe the actions of the government are necessary to guarantee your safety? Or are your Fourth Amendment rights being violated every day?

If your answer is the latter, and you want to know how to get involved and really make a difference, here's more information about what you can do.
