Telling the NSA to [Back] Off

Documents leaked by Edward Snowden show that the NSA is engaging in an unprecedented breach of our privacy, gathering data about every telephone conversation and online transaction it can. But don't worry, says President Obama: "Nobody is listening to your phone calls."
Is that supposed to make us feel better?
This panel will discuss what we can do to push back against widespread government surveillance. I will highlight some of the best practices for both individuals and companies who want to push back against this unconstitutional practice, ranging from a step-by-step walkthrough of anti-surveillance technologies to opportunities for activism to rein in these programs entirely.
Secret court decisions empowering three-letter agencies to invade the innermost recesses of our private lives should be fodder for spy novels, not part of a functioning democracy. It's time to say 'no way' to the NSA.
