Hundreds of people gathered at the foot of the AT&T building in San Francisco this evening, February 11th, 2014, 'to fight back' against the NSA and their corporate agents.
I was unfortunately unable to attend, but some colleagues and tweeters from Oakland were able to make it. It looks like the San Francisco Light Brigade and the San Francisco Projection Department did a great job getting out the message. Below is a twitter/photo essay from my feed, demonstrating just how well it turned out.
Time for Congress to listen... and for the NSA to stop.

As successful as the day was...
As those essays suggest, the fight against the DAC is not a day-long fight, and it is being fought on many fronts. You can help us fund a lawsuit against the establishment of a spy center in Oakland, and you can sign a Change.org petition against Oakland's Domain Awareness Center.
