I feel naked, and I shouldn't. Unconstitutional government surveillance has to stop. Our private moments belong to us. We should never, ever have to worry the government is watching. Yet every hour that passes, the NSA is collecting and reviewing our lives. And, in a matter of days, Congress will decide to make mass surveillance the law or stop it, determining the future of free speech and our democracy. We're asking you to do something that has the power to decide what happens — post to #IFEELNAKED to make Congress ashamed that they’re watching us. We'll show these photos to Congress before that vote and demand they stop. Join us by posting your photos.
NSA spying makes us feel violated. It’s like a strip search, online. We are holding Congress accountable for enacting mass surveillance into law. Join the protest.Can't add a photo? Contact Congress instead.
Edward Snowden's revelation of NSA phone metadata spying was only "the tip of the iceberg." The NSA is secretly wire-tapping huge portions of the Internet, vaccuming up the contents of millions of emails and text messages.
Now, Congress is trying to pass a law called CISA that would allow the NSA and FBI to collect peoples' private data from services like Facebook and Gmail without a warrant.
To protest mass surveillance laws, we're blacking out Congress' Internet access, showing them only our #ifeelnaked photos until they stop spying on us. Add your photo to join the protest!
