The Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveilance

Posted on Tuesday, February 11 @ 08:28:46 Eastern by


February 11, 2014 marks the day that we fight back against NSA policies that invade our privacy and breach our online communities. Only a few of the numerous organizations supporting the campaign are Reddit, imgur, tumblr, wikia, and Electronic Frontier Foundation.

It's quite clear, from exposés in The New York Times, The Guardian, and The Washington Post, that the National Security Agency has collected information from personal e-mails, social networks, Yahoo and Google data centers, and phone text data of US citizens.

According to leaked documents obtained by The Guardian, particularly the NSA's "Exploiting Terrorist Use of Games & Virtual Environments," online communities including Xbox Live, Second Life, and World of Warcraft have been infiltrated with real-life agents who fear that terrorists were lurking in these digital worlds, or "target-rich communications network." At the same time, though, not even these documents had any evidence or contained no indication that any terrorist plot was revealed through surveillance in online communities.

Even Blizzard Entertainment was caught off-guard, with a spokesman responding that they "are unaware of any surveillance taking place... If it was, it would have been done without our knowledge or permission."

Using terrorism as a front to spy on everyone, players included, isn't a new idea, but so long as we fight back by calling and emailing your local legislator and supporting the USA Freedom Act and FISA Improvements Act, To read more about each bill, please go to TheDayWeFightBack.org.
