America is in serious trouble. This July 4, save it.

America is in serious trouble. This July 4, save it.

America is in serious, serious trouble.

The Constitution says government can't spy on us-- not without suspicion. But now, thousands of government employees at the NSA and other agencies track our phones and read our emails. The government is dangerously trespassing on our rights -- free speech and freedom of association will never be the same.

This July 4, take a stand for the 4th Amendment.

The 4th Amendment is so simple and clear (read it). And this July 4th, people can see it everywhere-- on the sites they visit, on the profile pages of their friends, on billboards, and at events across the U.S. Do your part. Help America and its leaders remember the rights they stand for-- the rights they're supposed to protect.
So join the protest...

The recent revelations about the NSA's programs show that the U.S. government has been constantly tracking and monitoring the private communications of millions of Americans and people around the world. This July fourth we will take over the streets, the Internet and the airwaves to say:
Stop spying on us. The NSA's programs blatantly violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. Regardless of what FISA and the PATRIOT act say, that makes them illegal.
Delete all our data. A disturbing number of government employees have direct access to nearly everyone's private lives, threatening our democracy.
Never do this again. These revelations expose a government that has systematically violated our rights. It's time for dramatic political change, transparency, and accountability.

Do you agree?

Take to the streets to defend the Fourth Amendment.

The Restore the Fourth protests, organized initially on Reddit, are going to coincide with 4th of July celebrations. Bring friends with you, and spread the word. If you don't see one in your state, start one.

Help put the Fourth Amendment on TV where politicians can't ignore it.

These protests are happening nationally, on the ground and now on the web too. What if we could put the Fourth Amendment on TV, where politicians and the NSA can't ignore it?
If everyone who takes action chips in a little bit, we can easily crowd-fund simple, 30 second TV ads in every major city in the country that will display a message with the text of the Fourth Amdendment and information about NSA spying.
The ads will just be an image. No sound, no advertising for a political group, just a message from the people to the government to remind them to uphold the Constitution. $25,000 will make it possible. Can you chip in?
