we plead the fourth

via RestoreTheFourthNYC:

Under the banner of a grassroots nonpartisan organization called Restore the Fourth, thousands will be gathering on the 4th of July in dozens of cities across the United States to demand an end to unconstitutional governmental surveillance programs that violate the 4th Amendment rights of Americans.

In New York City, 4th Amendment rights issues go well beyond those recently revealed unconstitutional NSA spying programs. In addition to the national goal of seeking an end to these programs, we demand New York City stop all search and surveillance policies that target groups based on their race, religion, or political views. We demand an end to "Stop and Frisk," which targets people of color across the city, and an end to the discriminatory surveillance of Muslim Americans by the NYPD.

The rally on the 4th of July will begin at noon around Union Square South. We will march to Federal Hall. Despite the fact a permit will not be filed for this march, it is the intention of Restore the Fourth that the march be nonviolent and lawful. Since we expect to have attendees from all backgrounds and age groups, we want this event be safe for everyone involved without the risk of police violence and arrest.

We request that you share with your friends our Restore the Fourth NYC Facebook page and Event page for the march:

In addition, we're holding organizational meeting on Wednesday, July 3rd, at 8:00pm in Washington Square Park by the Garibaldi statue on the East side of the park. We will discuss the direction of the movement in the weeks beyond the 4th of July as well as any last-minute details for the march.

We hope to see you at our meeting, and if not, at our rally to Restore the Fourth!

Greenwald and ''Snowden didn’t “betray” (their) country, but his courageous act and Glenn Greenwald’s journalism are certainly “inciting people to rebel against the authority of [the] state.” Viewed in this way, their act could be considered as seditious ... and they are in good company — with none other than Mahatma Gandhi.

''In March 1922 Gandhi was charged with sedition by the ruling British government in India. He admitted his charges and said : “To preach disaffection towards the existing system of government has become almost a passion with me. The only course open to you … is … either to resign your post or inflict on me the severest penalty.” He was sentenced to six years in prison. What did Gandhi do ? He committed a serious crime — journalism.'' !!! Excerpted from :

fiat lux, fiat pax et fiat justitia ...
