article imageStop Watching Us releases video demanding an end to NSA spying

By Michael Thomas     Oct 25, 2013 in World
Stop Watching Us, a coalition of more than 100 advocacy groups and companies, has recently released a video that gathers whistleblowers, intelligence experts, celebrities and more highlighting the scope and depth of NSA spying.
The video, which is well on its way to 1 million views, assembles a large cast of speakers, beginning with Daniel Ellsberg, the whistleblower famous for the Pentagon Papers revelations. It goes on to include more recent whistleblowers as well as celebrities like Maggie Gyllenhaal and John Cusack.
The speakers detail the basics of the NSA surveillance, which includes obtaining chat logs, audio, video and more from virtually every American citizen, regardless of whether or not they've been accused of a crime. It also details the NSA's collaboration with huge internet companies like Google and Facebook.
Further, the video makes a striking comparison to the Watergate scandal and says that while the Internet wasn't around in those days, spying then was just as dangerous as spying is now.
The Washington Post says that the video was released to coincide with this Saturday's Stop Watching Us rally in Washington, DC.
Stop Watching Us has produced a petition that calls for a Congress investigation into NSA spying.
