Advocates Concerned With Privacy Planning March This Weekend In DC


Revelations by leakers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden have shown U.S. government agencies such as the NSA may have violated Americans’ right to privacy, according to advocates planning a protest march and rally in Washington, DC, this weekend. Adwoa Masozi of the Bill of Rights Defense League points out that as far back as the 1920s, the government was spying on the black nationalist movement of Marcus Garvey.
 
The action, timed to the twelfth anniversary of the signing of the Patriot Act, will be preceded by a panel discussion organized by the Center for Media Justice and Free Press. It is called, "Enemies of the State: Government Surveillance in Communities of Color.”.
