Explosive revelations that the National Security Agency and FBI have been collecting EVERY AMERICAN'S phone records, Internet activity and credit card information using the PATRIOT Act and a formerly top secret program, PRISM, demand a peaceful, loud and public response from We the People.
A supposed free society should not tolerate blanket surveillance of *literally* every aspect of our lives.
Instead of asking "Why should I care if the government spies on me? I'm not doing anything wrong," ask yourself why a supposedly free society should tolerate unwarranted, widespread collection of their most personal data.
Enough is enough.
We will meet at Independence Hall to rally and show the rest of the public that people will no longer roll over like we did in 2006, when the NSA's phone surveillance was revealed - albeit with fewer details than what was disclosed yesterday. We will then march to the FBI office at 6th and Market.
Speak out. Chalk out. Occupy. Let's educate and awaken others, because silence is no longer an option.
