Oliver Stone, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Phil Donahue, Mark Ruffalo, and Wil Wheaton. These are just a few of the Hollywood notables who have joined politicians, veterans, and public interest groups to endorse the StopWatching.Us coalition’s opposition of “wide spread, suspicionless surveillance of American citizens” by our our modern surveillance state. StopWatching.Us’s signatories resemble an amazing cross-section of America, stretching from the ACLU, to the Libertarian Party, to the Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party Association, along with over 100 other groups and individuals.
With over half a million signatures and counting, StopWatching.Us is sponsoring a petition to Congress, demanding a full disclosure of the NSA’s domestic surveilllance activities. They’ve also organized ‘The Rally Against Mass Surveillance‘ set for noon, this Saturday, October 26th, in Washington D.C.
