Videos & Photos: “Hey, National Security Agency: Stop Watching Us!”

A huge rally was held on Saturday morning, Oct. 26th, at Columbus Circle, directly in front of the historic Union Station in Washington, D.C. Stopping the National Security Agency’s (NSA) massive spying/surveillance on its own citizens was the focus of the spirited protest action. Politicos, celebrity authors, NSA whistleblowers and Civil Liberty champions all made an appearance. What the spooks from the NSA have been up to is beyond Orwellian. Of course, musical ambience was provided for the event. After the rally at Union Station, the crowd continued protesting by parading over to the U.S. Capitol with their anti-NSA/surveillance banners blowing in the wind.
