Stop Watching Us Rally

October 24, 2013 - 12:00pm to October 27, 2013 - 12:00pm
Washington DC

Right now the NSA is spying on everyone's personal communications, and they’re operating without any meaningful oversight. Since the Snowden leaks started, more than 571,000 people from all walks of life have signed the StopWatching.us petition telling the U.S. Congress that we want them to rein in the NSA.

On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the US Patriot Act, we're taking the next step and holding the largest rally yet against NSA surveillance. We’ll be handing the half-million petitions to Congress to remind them that they work for us -- and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer.

  • Location:
    Gather at Columbus Circle in front of Union Station, then march to the Capitol Reflecting Pool
  • Date and time:
    12pm Eastern, Saturday October 26th
