A 135 foot thermal airship flew over the symbolic headquarters of the National Security Agency in Bluffdale, Utah, on June 27, courtesy of a consortium of concerned groups against the government's private spooks.
The blimp used by a collection of American organizations to shame the NSA.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The airship had an arrow pointing down towards the facility with the words "NSA Illegal Spying Below" and a message encouraging viewers to visit the group's website, standagainstspying.org.
The consortium consisted of "20 grassroots and advocacy groups and Internet companies," and was organized by Greenpeace, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EEF), and the Tenth Amendment Center (TAC) which have filed a suit against the NSA for violation of the first amendment.
"The public needs to be brought into the Congressional debate around surveillance reform happening right now," said EFF Activism Director Rainey Reitman. "We're flying an airship over the Utah data center, which has come to symbolize the NSA's collect-it-all approach to surveillance, and demanding an end tot he mass spying. It's time for bold action in defense of our privacy."
The executive director and founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, Michael Boldin, said that: "Our right to privacy is not a partisan issue. It's a human rights issue. This coalition gives great hope for the future because it shows that people across the political spectrum can set aside differences to work together for a common cause."
