Independence Day, NSA leaks inspire ‘Fourth Amendment’ rallies

July 6, 2013

Internet privacy advocates gathered both online and off Thursday, using U.S. Independence Day to rally for the “Restore the Fourth” movement — a reference to the Constitutional Amendment that protects citizens against “unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Riding on the coattails of Edward Snowden’s NSA document drop last month, two organizations — Fight for the Future and Restore the Fourth — have teamed to fight against what they call unconstitutional surveillance by the U.S. government.

As part of their efforts to bring more attention to the issue the groups organized a physical protest Thursday that spanned across dozens of American cities.

The most prominent protests were San Francisco, Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., while smaller gatherings were independently organized by local activists in other areas, organizers said.
