Mozilla, Reddit and WordPress plan July 4th protest against NSA surveillance

Fourth of July Online Protests

A slew of online sites are planning to launch an online anti-NSA spying campaign on July 4th to raise awareness about privacy and citizen rights.  Websites like 4chan, WordPress, Mozilla, and Reddit are all gearing up for the online event.  The protest group expects this protest to be just as big as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) that occurred on January 18th of last year.  The purpose of these protests is to coerce the government into abolishing these programs.  Yes, it’s a bold goal but a noble one.

Why is it noble?  Because you can’t invade peoples personal lives on a daily basis and just expect them to accede to your blatantly unconstitutional acts.  What does the fourth amendment of the United States Constitution say?

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures…

Can anyone really make a cogent argument against the NSA being unreasonable?  I think not. Get the lowdown on the protests near you on the RestoreTheFourth website and join the movement.
