Data from “smart” meters is being analyzed and accessed by the NSA and other government law enforcement agencies to monitor detailed information about what you do in your own home, violating the 4th amendment of the US Constitution. Corporations- posing as state and federal governments- are forcing a surveillance state down the public’s throat in violation of our democratic and human rights. Is it really that surprising when people fight back and take direct action to maintain dignity and privacy in their lives?
This Tuesday is the Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance. Plan a protest. Talk to your neighbors. Hold a screening of Take Back Your Power in your living room. Remove illegal surveillance equipment. Whatever you do, don’t give them what they want- your silence (and of course, your data).
