Protest against excessive airborne surveillance — Nov. 20, 2014

Posted: November 18, 2014 in Events

When: Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, at 11:00am
Where: “Post Office” Federal Building opposite Burnside Park, 2 Exchange Street, Providence

A story in the Wall Street Journal revealed that the US Marshals are flying planes with devices that can track the location of large numbers of cellphones on the ground, with no clear and public standards on who gets to see the data or on how the data is used.
The protest is organized by the RI Coalition to Defend Human and Civil Rights.

We will gather outside the US Marshals’ district headquarters — which is at the “Post Office” federal Building in Providence across the street from the federal courthouse (also directly across the street from Burnside Park). We will go to the US Marshals’ office and deliver a letter which demands more information about the program and makes clear we oppose this over-broad surveillance.

Here is the Facebook event.
