Schöne Aktion von Fight For The Future, die einen Anti-NSA-Kurzfilm für einen Anti-Überwachungs-Protest in Manhattan auf 'nen Wolkenkratzer projiziert hatten. Oben der Kurzfilm, darunter ein Clip von der Aktion selbst, Snip aus der Pressemitteilung:

New York, NY — A crowd of nearly 300 people gathered in Washington Square Park at 9:00pm last night when Internet freedom groups Fight for the Future and Demand Progress unveiled their new crowdfunded video about NSA surveillance by projecting it onto the side of a building in bustling Manhattan.

The video, which is narrated and executive produced by actress, activist, and author Evangeline Lilly [Lost, The Hobbit, The Hurt Locker] lit up the side of a large building as hundreds of supporters and interested bystanders packed the sidewalk and spilled out into the street at a busy intersection adjacent to Washington Square Park.

“I want to live in a world where people are free to express themselves without the fear that the government is constantly monitoring them,” said Evangeline Lilly, who is a longtime supporter of Internet freedom and privacy, “Mass government surveillance is a dangerous form of Internet censorship, and I hope this video will encourage everyone to hold governments and corporations accountable when they violate our rights.”

“The NSA and their defenders in Congress have been lying to us nonstop,” said Evan Greer, Fight for the Future’s campaign manager, “We wanted to make a video that explains how the NSA’s spying programs really work, and does it in a way that’s funny and accessible enough to send to your mom or your a-political cousin.” The 5 minute video is a rollicking movie montage that details the NSA’s abuses while weaving together scenes from popular films like The Big Lebowski, E.T., and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
