Our generation has a proud tradition of fighting and exposing unacceptable surveillance, e.g. exposing Cointelpro, the covert FBI spy campaign against “subversives” like Martin Luther King. And in resisting apartheid security police oppression – the list goes on.

So of course My New Old Self endorses this Day We Fight Back against NSA spying.
