It wasn’t the largest DC protest I’ve ever been to, but it was easily the most diverse: anti-authoritarian, pro-constitution civil liberties people and groups from all corners of the political tetrahedron were in evidence at today’s Stop Watching Us march and demonstration against the massive, unconstitutional government surveillance of our communications, whereabouts, associations and activities.

Here at Irregular Times, we don’t accept advertisements because we don’t want any pressure to change what we write. Instead, we sell sweatshop-free t-shirts we’ve designed and use the proceeds to keep the site going.
