The Day We Fought Back By The Numbers: Find out how we did. →

The Facts

What we can do

Governments worldwide need to know that mass surveillance, like that conducted by the NSA, is always a violation of our inalienable human rights.

Over the past year, more than 360 organizations in over 70 countries have come together to support the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance.

These thirteen Principles establish the human rights obligations of any government conducting surveillance. They are the core of an international movement to compel all states to stop the mass spying of the innocent. The Principles are already being used in national campaigns and international pressure to reign in spies including the NSA.

Take part

By signing the Principles, you will show that you're part of a movement that knows mass surveillance is a violation of international human rights law.

We'll use your signature, with thousands of others, to pressure governments and international institutions to forbid mass surveillance anywhere in the world.
