LA vs NSA: How to Push Back Against Warrantless Spying
Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (PST)
Los Angeles, CA
There is strong public interest in ways to resist NSA spying, and this is the first event in the country to focus on how to do that without the help of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court.
At LA vs NSA, you'll be educated on ways that we can work together to push back against the NSA and its spying programs right here in California. You'll get tools you can use - including model state and local legislation - to get active right now.
Speakers and supporting organizations include:
- INTRODUCTION: The NSA has an Achilles heel. Learn the many ways that the NSA relies on state and local support in California and elsewhere
- THE RESPONSE: There's something that can and should be done about it. Get the tools you need to take action in your community - and in Sacramento - today.
- STRATEGY: We'll draw upon the success of the AB351 campaign against NDAA "indefinite detention" to teach you how local action and coalition-building can get some important victories. You'll also learn ways to resist the NSA's recruitment efforts against our children.
- NSA SPYING AND THE LAPD: Learn how the NSA's culture of suspicion has infiltrated LAPD and what is being done to resist and stop mass spying by local law enforcement - and their federal enablers at fusion centers.
- EDUCATING LAW ENFORCEMENT: Local police take an oath to the Constitution and they need the education and support to encourage them to resist those actions with aid and assist the violations of your rights.
Coming off a successful campaign to resist NDAA "indefinite detention" with the passage of AB351 into law, some of the leaders in that coalition created this event to ramp up the pressure against Bill of Rights-violating federal acts.
