Today Is The Day

Last January, I posted about the international action that would take place today, February 11, 2014.  That's today, and if you would, please add your name to the petition on the pop up banner on this page.  You know the facts, but here are a few at your finger tips:
The NSA "has secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers around the world."—
The NSA "is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world."— WASHINGTON POST
The NSA "is gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world."— WASHINGTON POST
The NSA collects the content and metadata of emails, web activity, chats, social networks, and everything else from fiber-optic cables "that carry much of the world's Internet and phone data."— WASHINGTON POST
NSA "officers on several occasions have channeled their agency's enormous eavesdropping power to spy on love interests."— THE NEW YORK TIMES
NSA "is secretly piggybacking” on Internet advertisers'"cookies" and location data “to pinpoint targets for government hacking and to bolster surveillance."— WASHINGTON POST READ MORE: WIKIPEDIA EFF.ORG THE GUARDIAN
This day is just beginning in much of the world and this banner will work no matter where you are reading it from. The last time I looked there were almost 130,000 signatures. In a few hours I hope it will be millions. Your voice counts!
